Dave- your "pleasant somewhere else is here", but the grass is always greener, don't you think. It is a high of 74 here in Phoenix, with a low of 49 today. Here, in the "Valley of the Sun", we get so excited when the weather is bad. It is a real nice change for us. I actually have my sliding door open to the family room, I can here the birds outside singing
Our sucky weather is the monsoons in the late summer. We can get really bad dust storms blown in from the desert, and we also get hail at times, all while it cools down to 60-70 degrees or so. We also usually get bad flash flooding. I do wish we had the 4 seasons, but then if I lived in a cold place that had the 4 seasons, I'd probably be wishing I was living back here in sunny Phoenix. Good luck with your weather.
