I would like to have as much sun as possible. It's high up on my list.

As to what kind of airport, I need something that has frequent flights to CA for family visits. I know when I lived in Idaho the airport in Spokane was great so it doesn't have to be huge.

Snow doesn't bother me.
OK then, how about Reno, NV? For example. Or, AZ, NM.

If Las Vegas is OK with you, there are forclosure homes there and around Phoenix if you want to go that route.

In that case it seems to me you didn't set out all your wants and don't wants in your original post - Easy to understand why someone would 86 California due to cost of living and administrative overburden, but that leaves most of the Intermountain West region that is sunny, have airports, various places with water/lakes nearby.

Of course when I say sunny I mean in summer. We get plenty of sun in summer, maybe too much, but in Eastern WA and what parts of Eastern OR that I know about, the winter tends to be cloudy, even rainy this year.

The Idaho Falls, ID area is sunny too, probably more sunny days in winter than here, but the winter is snowier and colder. High altitude too, with all the good and bad that come with that. All told I liked that area when I was working there.

The general area of Denver is getting a bit too built up for my taste, and Colorado is working on "Californicating" itself, but it *is* sunny. I can remember riding motorcycle on a just-below freezing day, snow right up to the edge of the dry pavement of the paved road out to work. Sun just blasting down, it was not that cold. Really.
