"Official" temperatures are taken at the airport which is a good 10 degrees hotter than on Flour Bluff. Rainfall is consistently less on Flour Bluff than as "officially" reported at the airport.

I'm glad I don't have to make such a choice but if I had, I would have chosen NYC over NO.

We decided to leave Minnesota for a warmer climate and looked at building or buying our retirement home in Albuquerque but found the cost of living less in Corpus and the cost of building a new home 30% less in Corpus than in Albuquerque. Not sure if I already had a home in Albuquerque that I would move to Corpus. Albuquerque had great scenery and weather.

I would undoubtedly pick Albuquerque over Corpus Christi, for all the reasons previusly stated, plus the wonderful cultural mixture and architecture. But I like dry climates and mountains.

If you don't like boating and fishing, than don't take the job. Try for a job in the Dallas, Houston, or San Antonio areas.

Hey Catman,

Don't know whether you saw my previous post or not but we found George's Cafe at Post, Texas about three weeks ago. You were right about their chicken-fried steaks.

Not to change the subject of this CC thread, but having grown up in deep east Texas, I think I felt that NO would be closer to my culture and language. Was I ever wrong! A zoo may be more comparable! And too, I'm not much of a sea/gulf/beach type person, but more of a land-lubber.

I can't really be critical of New York since I've only flown through there on occasion but I'm fairly sure I can be happy spending the rest of my life without actually visiting it.

Yes, I could too, but if I had my druthers, I would choose NYC. I cannot stand New Orleans. Actually, back to the thread, I'd choose Albuquerque any day over any of the cities we've mentioned. Corpus is about as unappealing to me as NO.

We can certainly agree. I would place NOLA just below Taroudant, Morocco in terms of liveable conditions. I have visited NOLA only once since escaping it 24 years ago and only at the urging of my son-in-law who is from NYC.

Well I have been there alot durng the summer. One thing to remember is that they almost always have a gulf breeze and this cools you pretty good. Get away from the coast and it gets hot quickly. Probably the hottest overall its in the piney woods in summer. High temperature ;still humid and little breeze. Just as in the wimter being colse to the gulf means in is usually wram than jutys inland. Thsi happens everywhere even in maine near the coast in winter.
