We don't usually get good press here in Arizona.

So I thought I'd share this:

The best & worst cities to retire

We made 3 of the best!

I don't think they counted sharing space with all the gun-toting, Republican-voting Libertarians as a detriment

1. My biggest selling point for Arizona ...

 

Is the weather ... besides the monsoons, there are no big weather concerns (i.e., no tornados, hurricanes, snowstorms/freezes, etc., and no earth quakes and it is unlikely to be underwater any time soon due to artic melts).

3. One just learns to park your vehicle where the shady will be and crack the windows a bit ...

4. if there is shade

I love how some parking lots are landscaped so the shade is all on the travel lanes and none on the parking spots.

don't forget your handy dandy reflecting windshield sun screen!

we don't need heated car seats here, we need cooled steering wheels.
