Tired of the Heat

I've been in Tucson for almost 30 years and I'm ready for some cooler weather. I am giving some serious consideration to Colorado Springs. Any pros or cons from those that live in the area would be appreciated.

Re: Tired of the Heat

By what I understand, the San Diego area has a year round temperature in the upper 70's.

Re: Tired of the Heat

San Diego also has an average freeway speed of about 15 mph during peak hours. Buddy of mine has lived there for 30 yrs & is a senior eng. @ Grumann. He leaves for work @ 4:30 am. When I pointed out he can go in just about any time he wants, he told me if he leaves @ 4:30 he is in his office by 5. If he leaves @ 6:00 am he get there @ 7:45-8:00. Same route, just a whole lot more folks.

Re: Tired of the Heat

I loved Colorado Springs when I lived there in the late '70s, but then again, I was much younger and didn't mind the snow as much as I would now. It's a beautiful place to live, but the weather is a whole lot different than Tucson.

Re: Tired of the Heat

Try Prescott or Payson AZ for year around moderate temps.
