LOL @ Jim. You've never seen my house. smirk RVs aren't allowed here. Looking out the window of my home office at the gently falling snow and wondering what's not to love?

BTW, you wouldn't recognize your former job. I'll leave it in good hands, but at least we went from that professional dress code and boots on the ground mentality to jeans and telecommuting as appropriate - makes life much easier!

Did you notice who won Super Bowl??? cool

Not talking about your house in particular, just KC in winter. And my RV is an airplane (Van's RV-6A), not a motor home, so not allowed in most neighborhoods.

Any idea how old I'll be in 17 years??? On the other hand, Patrick Mahomes will only be 41...

Back to where to retire! Compare Scottsdale to Naples. They both sound good to me for the worst of winter.

One of my cousins looked at Tucson and Naples when she got sick of Wisconsin winters. She moved to Naples smile

Considering we are closing at 1:00 because the snow is coming down at record rates, Naples sounds perfect!

Naples: currently 69* and mostly cloudy, 60% humidity and a high rip current risk though tomorrow morning.
Scottsdale: currently 54* and sunny with 30% humidity
Here: 36*cloudy, 13 mph WNW wind and 27* wind chill.
Soccer: closing at 1:00 for record rates of snowfall

I'll go with Scottdale (I love 50s and sunny), Naples, Here, and just gonna say no to Soccer's Utopia

83.5 more working days, at least 25 of which involve up to 18 OCC examiners on site or working remotely at their office. Personally, I'd rather have them on site asking questions.

Any thoughts on San Diego in the winter?

I've only been to San Diego once a few years ago for the ABA Compliance Seminar, which was in May or June (forget) and although it was during the May/Haze - June/Gloom time of year, the place was amazing. It is one of the few places where I'd seriously have to think about moving to if there were an opportunity there. I really want to go see more of SD and So Cal in general as that place is unbelievably beautiful. I guess that's why it's so expensive to live there, and I can totally see why.

I'd retire on Coronado Island in a heartbeat. Even in May/June, it's gorgeous and the beach is right there. Having priced a condo? Not likely to happen.

Regarding Arizona:

Some retirees flocking to Arizona now homeless because of rising rents: ‘Not as affordable as used to be’

My aunt lives in San Diego and she claims it's 70 degrees all year round. I've spent enough Thanksgivings down there to be able to testify it never gets really cold. Because it's on the ocean, it also doesn't get terribly hot. Personally, I'd rather have a little bit of weather.

San Diego is an amazing place and has great weather. It's not cheap though. I was told Naples is lovely but that it's starting to get expensive?

i was there a number of years ago for a conference (probably 10-12 years ago), and a 1 bedroom bungalo house was going to $800k on a postage stamp sized lot. i'm sure that has likely doubled since then
