Or is it more severe? Cuz honestly, the sun can be great, but whats the difference if its so hot outside you cant go out of the house and have to put black drapes to keep the heat out or if its raining? And half the days in Vegas the smog is so bad its "cloudy" out with grossness. My backyard is "desert" landscaping, aka DIRT, and infested with fire ants in the summer. So my daughters swing set is now useless for 2 years and the plastic is actually cracked from the dry heat. Her toys MELT outside. You go from running to the car, to running into your job, or whatever store, to running back to the car, to running back in the house. So you cant go outside here anyways. Ok, so all that ranting aside lol, is the weather like it is in New England? Cuz if so Im there....
Go to Portland if you can. Take that from someone who's lived in both places.
