I like that area out there. My dad managed a snowbird park in Apache Junction for a few years after he retired in the 80's, and I have an uncle that has lived in Prescott for 30 years or so now. I considered retiring there, but it ended up being third on my retirement location list...

I complain about the heat, but I think I'll always have a special place in me for AZ... It grows on you. :)

South of Payson, which includes the valley and Tuscon, stay pretty warm. The winters are cold, but more like sweater cold, not heavy jacket cold. The horses still get their winter coats, although there were a few this year that I couldn't even tell. The summers are our off season for riding, unless you want to wake up at 5 in the morning, and our winters are perfect riding weather.

There does seem to be a freak snow fall every few years in the hotter parts. I remember one year snow fell within a one square mile area by our house and actually stuck to the ground, probably a good half inch. It was the craziest thing I had ever seen.

*sigh* I wish Phoenix got that pretty!! We just got some rain, and some areas got hail, from the recent storm. We also got a nice little temperature drop, yay!! Please keep coming pleasant weather! I'm not looking forward to it being in the 100's anytime soon!!

Waresbear, come to Phoenix! We complain about it being freezing cold when the weather is in the 40-50's. It stays fairly warm all year, but summer is rather toasty when it's upwards of 110+ daily.

Falling off doesn't hurt.....

Hitting the ground... now that hurts.
