Valley Fever - 2/15/2015
I was considering retiring in Arizona. I have asthma and always thought of Arizona as a healthy area for me to relocate. But what I have read about air pollution, fungus causing Valley Fever, I'm not so sure moving to Arizona is such a good idea. I'm 64 and heard Valley Fever is a bigger risk for seniors.

Dry Heat? OK sure. - 8/8/2014
Yes. Dry heat in the desert for the most part. Although that claim has a large flaw. The two months out of the which are also the hottest, its monsoon season. July and August, give or take a week or two, are extremely humid. Imagine the worst humidity in the country that you have ever felt, then add 15 degrees to it. If you can stay indoors or take a vacation for a month or two (which most do, even the ones that "love it here") you will be able to handle the rest of it. If being able to handle this type of climate is what you Read More

Don't move to Arizona - 7/19/2014
Dry heat, ok. Hot and miserable, yes. Oppressively uncomfortable about 300+ days/yr. Constant state of drought, water is expensive, utilities high, housing expensive, traffic is always bad. Rude drivers, angry people, lots of drugs, thieves, gangs, fraud, auto theft,high school dropout rate is one of the highest in US couples with teen pregnancy rate make Arizona a sad place to live. Read More

Moving - 5/2/2014
Anyone thinking of moving from Arizona to California let me know let's do it together I have one child 10 years old and I'm stuck here, it's time to get out it's time to leave this hellhole and move back to the promise land but I need help with finances and let's do it together? Let's talk! I'm a 37 yr old single mom who is stuck in az and I want, need to move home!
The cost of moving is so much I figure if we could Share the cost, even motivate one another we could get it done faster and move before it is a 200° this summer! I'm looking to go back to the beach in Orange County! But at first we, I'll need to get on my feet! So I know i won't be able to go directly from Az to a cliff mansion on spyglass hill in corona del mar but I will someday soon! I know I'll have to start out either in Costa Mesa or fountain valley!? Somewhere a little bit inland but only a couple miles from the water! So if you're like me and want to raise your child at the beach and truly want to leave Read More

Looking to Move to Arizona? - 11/7/2013
I moved here from the Midwest about 7 months ago. It was my dream to move to a warmer climate for health reason. I did my research on this place and I actually flew out here for an interview and got the job. which I thought was descent. Got a place to live, at that point I was so happy. I sold my house, left my great job all for sunshine and better health. things were going my way finally after 2 years of hard decision making.(should I stay or go scenario)
So I packed up my Husband and two daughters, grandmother and dog. We started on a new life adventure. The first couple of months were great. Getting to know the areas enjoying the Paradise. My job became a night mare. The company that hired me cut back on hours because that's what Arizona can do. they are an "At Will State" they take forever to hire a person, they preform so called back ground checks that take anywhere from 4-6 weeks. in the meanwhile if you are not Rockefeller or have a bank roll you can stave to death Read More

Need Water? - 9/13/2013
Yes, the sunrises & sunsets in the desert are spectacular, as are the views at a distance and the ubiquitous natural beauty. Problem is, just about every 'organized' settlement wants to recreate (insert name of Eastern riparian state). That takes water. Development-hypers fail to mention this vital element is both a finite and declining (in amount & quality) resource. Yet the Arizona economy continues to rely on 'development'. The siren of greater population for more revenue has a much shorter shelf-life than the need to replenish exhausted sources of water, e.g., pumping ground water at some geometrically greater rate than the aquifers refill. It's a negative-sum game. Wanna visit? OK, bring lots of touristy appetites & dollars. Wanna relocate here? Bring your own water.  Read More
