You know your going to miss the snow. Not necessarily shoveling the partly cloudy, but seeing the prestine white covered mountains.

In San Diego, it's a very moderate temp. In 18 years there, I saw frost on the grass one time. But the nice thing is, if you get a hankering for the prestine beauty of snow? It's an hour or so away. Nice day trip, get your fill, go home and bar-b-que outside and take a dip in the pool.
San Diego would be great, been there, very beautiful, perfect weather, sad thing is, could never afford to live there.
Brother in law lives out there, he loves it, but then he is single and can afford it. Love the idea though!!!!!!

Look at outlying areas. Don't look at San Diego and the suburbs. You can still get reasonable land if you get 15 to 20 miles out of town. Look at Alpine, Dulzura and such. You can still find reasonable stuff. Granted, it's a 20 maybe 30 mile drive once a month to pick up major groceries, but it's populate enough to have things to do, but unpopulated enough that your not stacked up next to the house next door. 3-5 acre lots.

I HATE WINTER!!!

I love Kentucky - wonderful place, friendly, most of my family is here. But...I awoke again to snow this morning. I start my new job tomorrow and the road I am traveling is very hilly - hills no matter which way I go - and I am dreading it.

I do love it here, and I encourage others who want 4 seasons to come on in - but as for me - I can't take the cold anymore either. We may not have snow every winter - but it gets cold and the skys are gray - and my bones ache. With Fibromyalgia - it is not easy to get through, and the meds and yoga only temporarily help. The tanning bed and hot showers are relief for a few minutes.

I would move to an all-round summer in a heartbeat if it weren't for the kids.
Like I said, I love it here - Ky is rich in culture and history and is friendly - but my body can't take it anymore. Arizona or Nevada sounds good, too - but too far from here. Florida is the only choice so far. Dad was mowing grass the other day - lucky him!!

I completely understand your point. KimmieyKY

Winter is the best time of the year here. The weather is beautiful and mild. But the bad thing about it is the bloody flu & common cold...!

No. I cannot tolerate dry summers either.
