The average dewpoint in August is 59°F, so you only get a few days with dews that High, unlike say Brownsville, TX where dewpoints in August are guaranteed to be in the 70s every day

Sorry dude, I've seen the dewpoint in the 60's/70's for long stretches at a time. That's an AVERAGE as you stated. And 59 is near enough to 60, where you start to feel the humidity. Just admit it, July/August/first part of Sept are just down right miserable with the elevated dewpoints.

I used to live in SE Texas, I never want to go back to that type of humid heat. Even Oregon (where I moved from) is too humid for me now and it's relatively dry there when it's not raining.

It's a beautiful area and right next to Lake Tahoe of course!

I'm considering it myself, Nevada's no state income tax sounds like a great deal.

Home prices are high like everywhere but not as bad as the Denver area which was another option but the traffic I hear is worse then ever. Moving during a housing bubble doesn't appeal to me having to bid for homes after I sell mine.

Have one in the master bedroom to use at night.

And one in my home office to use during the day.

This helps with the hard water:

The entire Reno metro area is the size of Mesa, there's really no comparison to Phoenix. Reno probably works fine if a small city lifestyle works for you and your main priorities are cooler temps than Phoenix and a dry climate. I personally do not like the combo of cold/dry air, that is the worst combination for me and dries my skin out form head to toe. I get a taste of that in Phoenix on occasion but it's nothing compared to a Reno type of winter.

Also being 3.5 hours, or more if weather or traffic is bad, to the nearest big city in SF wouldn't cut it for me.

I'm sure he realizes that. Not everyone is a fan of the incessant heat and sprawl of Phoenix. I know you're a booster of the area and that's fine, you love it.
