There's no perfect place. Believe me, I've tried to find it. I thought moving to Florida would be better than struggling through the cold New England winters. Actually, it is! I haven't shoveled snow or driven on an icy road in 16 years.

OTOH, I would prefer a less humid climate, so I advise staying in New Mexico if you're bothered by high humidity. It can trigger a lot of ailments like allergies and respiratory problems.

If you mix in 8000 ft altitude with the "L" word, I'll take the sweat any day over the bloody nose, cracked lips and panting.

God flipped a switch, a week or so ago, and we're loving it. Our northern friends are already bitching about being cold, but we are in weather heaven.

I lived in Savannah for three summers that we really couldn't afford more than 1-2 hours of air conditioning every day (we usually saved this for times when we were trying to cool down from physical work.) You DO get acclimated to the humidity, believe it or not, but the secret is you can't use the AC or go into somewhere with heavy AC frequently or it won't happen. For most people who can afford it, they would rather just have AC and thus never acclimate. I would estimate it takes 1-2 weeks of no AC to acclimate, though it's not something you really become comfortable with but rather you learn to accept it. It IS worth not dreading going outside, but you never quite get used to going straight from wet to sweaty after showers.

Also gentlearts, I don't know if you've had a winter in Savannah yet but the humidity will make it pretty miserable again by November, especially if you live in an old victorian. It DOES get cold down there - we had our pipes freeze a couple times in the winter.

One thing many people don't quite understand is that when it gets cooler here, the humidity does go down. That's why our lips are chapped and our skin is dry in the winter. It may be a tad more humid than further north, but for Savannah, it's our dry time.

We sure are enjoying it now. Today is the most perfect day there could be. We have not been here in the winter yet, but I doubt it's very winterish compared to what we're used to.
