I'm 50-50 on whether I survive the heatwave this time around Firebird . Not going to lie though, this is a rough one. Hoping for a strong monsoon.

Ya know...with the current trend in the MSM to portray everything as a devastation or proof of "climate change" I am surprised we still get businesses and people moving to this hell hole. I mean...we are out of water. The golf courses are barren wastelands. All the pools are empty. Tempe Town Lake and all the lakes/ponds in the metro area should be drained NOW. We're all gonna DIE!!!!

I'd say 85% of people that move here don't realize the very near future situation of the water shortage ,worsening drought and wildfires. Sure there might be a year where AZ will get a few inches more than the previous year , but it's going to take years, imo, for the water situation to get back to ''normal''. By this I mean the reservoirs that AZ depends on for water sources will take a while to fill back to normal levels.

Of course the developers that are also buying what farmland AZ has left , atleast in the southern part of the state, only care about money from new home builds and businesses and won't mention the downsides of their projects to new transplants. I saw something about 9 new developments with a few being water parks, really?

Taking my chance and leaving before it gets worse.

I know what you are saying is real.

I also know a friend that was saying this identical thing about 13 years ago and he is still happily in the country on a mountain outside of S vista...I know one day it will pop but it's been 13 years and he still says the identical thing. Maybe he has his own well. I didn't ask. If one does is it safer place ?

First off is the obvious. Arizona is nothing but a dry super hot forbidding desert. The temperature usually runs over 100 degrees and there is no rainfall. In the small parts of Arizona that are cooler, the temperatures will run about 10 degrees below zero and you will have 10 feet of snow.

But to continue; Arizona is a welfare state and leaches off the rest of the country:

http:////www.city-data.com/forum/ari...nt-states.html

Further into the evils of Arizona is the politics:

http:////www.city-data.com/forum/ari...oney-bill.html

http:////www.city-data.com/forum/ari...-abortion.html

http:////www.city-data.com/forum/ari...wn-az-gop.html

http:////www.city-data.com/forum/ari...orate-tax.html

And do not forget the infamous Arizona SB1070, the most racist bill ever passed in the history of the world.

Let's move on. How about the water. Take a look at just this one:

http:////www.city-data.com/forum/ari...cord-lows.html

And then how depressing it is to have ever lived in Arizona:

http:////www.city-data.com/forum/ari...n-back-az.html

Do not forget how depressing and awful the landscape is. After all, Arizona is nothing but desert rocks with no form:

http:////www.city-data.com/forum/ari...-strictly.html

Next, it is the education system. Usually it is rated on how much $$ is spent, as if how many dollars=the quality of the education in one place. But then there's this:

http:////www.city-data.com/forum/ari...e-arizona.html

So, to suffice, anyone who is thinking about moving to Arizona should well be warned off. However, if that is not enough, for heavens sake do not forget about the gun laws in Arizona.

There are hardly any. It is a virtual Wild West. You will see guns every where on every one. The only reason you might not is because Arizona does not require a permit to carry concealed. And not only that, but Arizona has a law to allow folks who have been convicted of certain (non-violent) felonies to be able to have those self same rights as well.

Oh the agony! So, do not come to Arizona to visit or relocate unless you are willing to deal with it.
The ghost of Sheriff Joe lives on.
