Thanks, norm, for your extensive responsvie to each and everyone of us. I also am from the New York City area. Is it hard to adjust to the totally different climate?

I live near Boston. Today is 70 degrees, grey, and 95% humidity without rain.
I could get used to Albuquerque overnight after this.

Default Albuquerque as good as it gets

I moved to Albuquerque in 2002 and don't imagine ever leaving. No natural disasters, steady weather, change of seasons, sunny, very little snow (if any). I should work for the visitors and tourism board. Write back if you have questions.

Albuquerque is a good choice for retirement. I live near Denver and I have been there many times. It is similar to Denver in that it is a high elevation and dry climate. Though, Denver is considered semi-arid, Albuquerque is an arid climate. It has much less vegetation, hotter, less moisture and consequently has less snow than Denver. It is nice because it is not so hot as Phoenix.

I enjoy the southwest Hispanic culture and Albuquerque has much more than Denver. If I did not settle in Denver, many years ago, I may have tried Albuquerque--they are both great areas to retire.

We had to abandon our plans to move to Albuquerque, my wife was diagnosed with incurable cancer in September and is currently undergoing chemo. She will be retiring some time next year and because we now want to stay on the east coast we will move to Delaware.

Oh my gosh, I am so sorry. But the good thing is there are probably better specialists and hospitals on the east coast, than in Albuqueque. We just never know what life will throw at us. I have a very good friend in Newark DE and she loves it there. I sincerely hope you will too.

That's great news.

I relocated here in June 2008 and live in the Nob Hill area - I just love it.

I've been in practice for 21 years as a massage therapist, and my office is here in Nob Hill as well.

I'm sure they were responding to the initial post and missed the last few. Lots of people do that.

Norm, tell your wife we all wish the best for her.
