I lived in Phoenix for a few years, and didn't like it that much. It was TOO hot, and the traffic was terrible. I don't know if they've fixed the latter or not (this was about 15 years ago)

FYI, in the last 15 years, they've finished the 51, extended the 202, and put in a loop (101) around the whole dang area. Which is great if you're driving off-peak hours, and on-peak it means that the surface streets ain't so bad any more! (Cuz they've also improved light signal timing in the last 10-15 years.) OTOH, I miss the Dreamy Draw, which they basically turned into access for the park, now that the 51 cuts through the hills. Sigh.

but I'm pretty sure it's still too hot. ;-)

Keep meaning to check historicals. Either my tolerance for humidity has evaporated, or we're getting more damp than we used to. I know we didn't get to 100 until late April, early May this year, temp-wise, which took many of us by surprise.

Hear tell that Tucson's as nice as ever, climate-wise, but apparently is growing by leaps and bounds.

How cold does Sacramento get in the winter? Is that high up enough for snow? (My only visit there was summertime.)
