The first time I visited Fresno, Ca. it was spring. Everything was green and the sky was clear. After living here for four years and experiencing all four seasons, more of the city, the cost of living and so forth, I would recommend not coming here to live. The air quality is terrible (causing headaches, itchy eyes, congestion for the sensitive), everything turns brown (unless constantly watered) during most of the year,and the cost to live here is ridiculous. You can get so much more for your money in most other states in the country. Don't come if you don't have to!
