New York shrugs its shoulders. It is what it is.

Hahahaha! I grew up in Denver and lived in Chicago for 8 years so I am very comfortable in colder climates. I have lived in San Antonio for going on 13 years now and I must say that my favorite time of year is winter because it is the only time that I don't feel like I am melting here. I do love the comic element of big tougher than tough Texans wilting and cowering from any weather 50 degrees (Fahrenheit) or cooler. Hahahaha! I mean that in the nicest way, Texans. Don't get all touched. Despite having learned how to drive in adverse weather and being forced to drive in snow, rain, hail, blizzards, etc. you'd think I can drive in any condition whatsoever, and I can, confidently no less. That being said, when it is anything but dry and sunny here the natives drive like absolute garbage, either wicked slow or as though they are actually trying to hit each other. I love this town. Hahahaha!

It's been chilly here too... Was mid 70's over the weekend, but it's supposed to be back up to 80F today.

Alberta has always been crazy in up and down jumps, not so common in Toronto. That being said, were dropping to -23 on Saturday and back to +1 on Monday, followed by -20 again on Wednesday... Finally evens out after that, but the temperatures the past two weeks have been a rollercoaster.

Looking at your profile, that seemed funny to me because the wife and I have always talked about retiring out in the northwest, like around Seattle or Bend.

Funny enough my wife and I are also considering retiring to somewhere in the Northwest... possibly somewhere in Oregon or Washington state. It's between either or those places or Costa Rica. My votes for Costa Rica, but I still haven't convinced my wife yet.

We also have friends that just retired early and bought a nice ranch property in Southwest Montana. The amount of land they got (along with a lake on the property) for the money also makes that a very appealing option for retirement.

PNW is long overdue for an earthquake. My nephew lives in Seattle and it's a topic of conversion. This is separate for the possibility of Rainier blowing its top and wrecking much of PNW.

Texas gets hot and suffers tornados as well as hurricanes near the coast. I've been through nearly a dozen hurricanes and damaging tropical storms. Thankfully, little damage but evacuation sucks.

Arizona gets HOT in the summer. At least it's a dry heat. Still, 114*F can't be fun.

I've been to Dallas/FW a number of times in my life, and came away really disliking the people and the culture. However, Texas is huge, and I've heard that Austin is quite nice.

Curiously, I've never been to the west coast, although I have been to Alaska. Furthest west I've been is Denver and Las Vegas. I think I'd like to live in the Pacific Northwest sometime while I can, and before some natural disaster ruins it.

D/FW is stuck up and stuffy. Austin is a liberal haven but with nice lakes and relatively close to real roads. Oh, and COTA if F1 is your thing. Houston is nearly as cosmopolitan as D/FW with a more laid-back vibe but the only elevation changes are freeway overpasses. Not sure what San Antonio has to offer besides The River Walk and the same access to real roads as Austin.
