Hehe, I actually did know that about Columbus because my parents come from there. My father decided he didn't want to live in that weather any more, even though all of their family lived there. He got out weather maps from all over the country and decided the best weather was in Santa Barbara, California. So he moved.
I will admit that when travelling, I look at the beautiful greenery and think it would be nice to live there...but I don't think I could move from here. When my husband and I started getting serious I warned him that I wouldn't live back east...and that east was anything past Arizona. He thought I was joking at first : )
Phoenix is hot, but you loose a couple months because it's too hot. My best friend lives in Tucson and that's a little cooler then Phoenix, but man those summers fry.
