Growing up in North Dakota meant long winters of frequent subzero temperatures and snow and ice everywhere. I moved to Arizona and continue to live here because I love the climate.
People say "but don't you miss the change of seasons?" No, I don't because I have the change of seasons right here where I live. Now granted, about half of my 33 years in Arizona were spent in Phoenix and it does get unbearably hot there in the summer. But other times of the year it is heaven on earth.
And have I mentioned the Grand Canyon? One of the great wonders of the world is only about 100 miles from where I sit typing these words. Since I reached Senior Citizen age and received my Golden Age passport, it doesn't even cost me anything to get into the park, as many times as I want.
So don't ask me again, folks, I am home. Home in Arizona.
