And while there are and have been tornadoes on Long Island, where I am from as well as in all 5 boroughs of New York, there has never been a tornado ever reported in or near Coolidge, Arizona where I live now. In fact, nothing ever seems to occur here weather-wise, except the occasional rain shower. Our average annual rainfall here is about 9 inches..
Now as far as skin cancer is concerned, you can develop skin cancer from too much sun just as easily in New York as you can in Arizona. And while I used to go to Cherry Grove on Fire Island almost every weekend for a long time when I live don Long Island, I was, and always have been, very careful about not going out in the sun for many decades as I have blond hair and blue eyes, and am very fair-skinned (German ancestry).
And lastly, please don't come to Arizona.
Thank you.
PEACE !:)
I wish I could say that I was doing something so noble when I fell and broke my tib & fib in two places, in the snow storm of 2006. Either way, I would never leave Albuquerque. I love my state of NM. In Albuquerque the weather is not as bad as it gets up north.
I am sorry that you didn't give our state a chance, but I am glad that you are happy where you chose to be.

As I said, I LOVED Albuquerque. But I prefer warmer weather than what ya got there. I didn't leave the cold and snow of New York just to live in the cold and snow in Albuquerque. My mistake.

It's been cold here lately (50's & 60's) but it's sposed to be in the 70's here all week starting tomorrow.:)

Albuquerque is way too hot for me in the summer, and not enough snow in the winter.

I move dther ein July 2011, so I spent mosty of the summer there and didn't find it too hot a atll. I certainly remember hotter summer days in New York. But the cold and snow I was unprepared for. I enjoy just wearing a t-shirt and not worrying about putting on a jacket here in the winter when I run out to the grocery store to go shopping.

And while it is certainly HOT here in the summer, the fact is that unless you work outside and have to bear the heat, the house, the car, and all the stores I go to here are air conditioned.

Up north tho here in Arizona I hear it can get quite cold. But I haven't been in the northern part of the state tho yet, although I intend to visit there later this year.

I too come from Long Island, Suffolk Co. As said before I have lived in different parts of the country. Every local has it problems weather wise. Beaking you leg was an accident which could happen to anyone. But thinking that because you lived here in Albuquerque, has something to do with it seems silly. I'm glad you finally found a place that in your mind will be accident free and free from all misfortune. Should I decide to visit Arizona I'll look you up.

I like the change of seasons, Winter here really does not last that long. Spring is nice and Summer is hot but lasts about 3 months. The heat is a dry heat which I prefer to Fla which is hot and humid. Lived in Fla for 22 years and was glad to leave.

The last 2 years I lived in New York, I was living just a few miles from my sister. At the time I decided to move to the southwest, first Albuquerque, and then here, My sister coincidentally also decided to leave New York, but she went to the west coast of Florida. She tried for quite awhile to get me to move down there with her, but for a variety of reasons, including the weather and hurricanes, as well as other reasons, I did not want to move to Florida.

So now I live in the desert in southern Arizona, in a small city surrounded by farmland, with low mountains on the horizon. I like being able to wear just a t-shirt most of the time, even in the winter here, and since we only average about 9 inches of rain all year, there is never any bad weather here at all. And according to the weather research I've done, while there have certainly been a number of tornadoes and earthquakes on Long Island over the years, neither has ever been recorded here. So no major weather events ever here. I'm at 33.0 N, 111.5 W

We rarely get snow here in Albuquerque, but my friend who is from Colorado dresses up like we were in the Arctic. My nephew who had been stationed in Alaska for years thinks it is more like "spring" weather now. My point is that everyone has different views, and different likes. It does not make one person right or wrong as to how they feel. I have been to Arizona, and for me it was much too hot. I prefer the ever changing, unpredictable weather of New Mexico. It has been nice chatting with you.

When I lived on the Island, never experienced tornadoes or earthquakes, I suppose it can happen. Lived in LA and San Francisco and missed the earthquakes there. Fla was a nightmare, what with the heat and humidity, bugs, snakes and a whole lot of little critters that made me cringe. I just happen to like Albuquerque, love the mountains I am happy here,
I am glad you found your ideal place to live.

However, the state legislature is considering putting man/woman on paper as law in NM.

Since they say they are Christians, and photographing this couple would violate their religious beliefs, what if they refused to photograph a couple who do not believe that Jesus Christ is The Messiah, i.e. a Jewish couple, Muslim couple or any other non-Christian couple ?
Would that be violating the law ?
No, it would not. MARRIAGE is the issue for them, not homosexuality.

No. Obviously they're saying that they're offended by gay people. They say it violates their religious beliefs in some way.

No. Obviously they are offended by same-sex marriage...since there is no such mention of it in the Bible or in our Faith. It would be the same for them if two heterosexual men decided to marry and wanted their services.
