Go North...Southern colorado maybe?

I live in ARIZONA!
In Phoenix it's still 60 at 10 PM.
We call lake Pleasant lake "Deadman" because so many people drown in it.
Of course you can always visit the Tempe Az. "Town" fake-lake.
It's better than a stagnant cesspool, barely but it is better. Well maybe not because I've never actually seen a cesspool (or smelled one).

Northern Arizona is much cooler. Visit Flagstaff Az.

15.5oC at 10 PM at night; Hell's teeth, how do you people even breathe

When you get overnight minimums of 85oF / 29oC, come back and we'll talk

Anyone know what "Swamp" A.K.A. evaporative coolers are? Water sprays over a pad and a centrifugal fan blows the "cool" air into a house.
If it's VERY dry it might cool things down around 20 degrees. Since it regularly gets to 110 (and higher) that means it's still around 90. But hey 100 is just warm it doesn't start to get very warm until it's about 105.
Summer nights stay in the 90s. In the city at least it doesn't cool off much at night. The concrete and buildings form a heat island and hold the heat in.
I grew up with just one of those swamp coolers in my house. I didn't get an AC unit until I was around 30.
I was working in a tin shed "cooled" with evaporative coolers the year it turned 122 F.
Don't even think of turning your AC down to around 70. You wouldn't be able to afford the electric bills. As my bill goes up the thermostat is set up from the lower 80s, middle 80s, close to ninety.
Oh, and I could tell you about unloading semi-truck trailers that have been out in the heat. But that's another story.

MOVE ffs

You don't want the midwest, too many tornadoes and floods

You don't want to freeze your ass off in the north, or die of heat prostration in the south.

You don't want to be within 250 miles of any east or gulf coast, too many hurricanes. You don't want to be on the west coast, fires floods and earthquakes.

That leaves you the area around the foothills of the Rockies. That's it. The only safe place in the whole US. Plus, pot is legal in Colorado.

Solved.

We vacationed in AZ last year. 98 in NC fucking sucks because of the humidity, 98 in Phoenix was wonderful.

Hmmmm. Have never met someone who got a speeding ticket
for traveling at the speed limit.

ETA: My mom's best friend would never allow her husband to drive
above the 55 mph speed limit throughout Arizona highways.
They were a family of 8 and usually had one or two extra kids
included for a total of 8+ hurling down the road.

Who the Hell drives 55?
Plus New Mexico is as hot as Arizona. But if you want to move here go to Prescott or Payson or Sedona lots of places nice just avoid the lower deserts such as metro-Phoenix and southern Az.

NC is like that, too. It was infuriating going 10 under in the passing lane

You saw The Mummy, right? It was filmed in Phoenix. I'm pretty sure.





Speed limits are artificial when you want to live.
