Denver would be a halfway decent semi arid climate, though really the only reason I would ever move there is because my brother lives there.

"Madrid has an inland Mediterranean climate (Köppen Csa)[49] which transitions to a semi-arid climate (BSk) in the eastern side of the city."

No need for the arrogance.

Maybe karratha, western australia or moree. Both have good temps year round and periods of lots of rain.

Maybe somewhere a bit further south though, somewhere like Carnarvon: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carnar...tern_Australia

I have no problem with living in a nice large house overlooking the Pacific Ocean.

When did Honolulu become semi-arid with 29 inches of rainfall annually?
