"Santa Fe is a bit cooler than Hades." Really????? "You can fry an egg in [sic] it." Say what?
It's summer for crissake. It's supposed to be hot. If you really want hot, go to Phoenix, or El Paso, or Deming, or Houston, or New Orleans, or Miami, or......Geeze......Can't wait to hear that Santa Fe is just a tad warmer than the north pole come January!

But that's nice that you enjoyed yourself in Santa Fe in July. More power to you. Come again. This summer wasn't so bad, btw, and last summer had some rain to cool things off. We'll see how next summer fares.
Yes, not only was Santa Fe consistently cooler than Austin, Tx, it was also significantly less humid which made it all that much more enjoyable. I meet two friends from Kansas for the vacation, Santa Fe was consistently 10 degrees cooler and drier than their home in Kansas every day also.

So as GreatSantaFe pointed out, Santa Fe is much, much cooler than many other places in the USA.

What? Very hot in SF at 7000 ft altitude? Huh? Summer can get hot but generally not all the time, it cools off at night and if you're from a more humid climate you might even find that you can live without AC in NM. Very hot would be Las Cruces in the summer. SF to me has about perfect summer weather.

I think the remarks about heat are funny. I currently live in Chicago and am thinking of retiring in Santa Fe. I'm sure the summers will be more comfortable than here. I'm more worried about the winters. I know they will be better than here, but I'm still worried it's too cold.

Same here. Ruth is the only one I've ever seen complain about the heat in Santa Fe. Most people I know complain about the cold and long winters, feeling like it takes forever for Spring to arrive, and having to escape to southern AZ in the winter (or other locales) to "warm up".

Default Where did you land?

Can I ask what area you ended up moving to? We are also considering retirement there....
