It does not surprise me that people flock to Coachella Valley to live. Look at that weather report below. Not just for the winter, but all year round people discover this area as being a great Southern California destination to live.
Yes, it does not have the panache of Orange County or similar coastal regions, which in turn keeps real estate values in check. For now, that is.
The winters here are very very nice. It's early February, a time when I used to set up a booth at an industry trade show in Edmonton freezing at minus twenty usually. Here? We went to the mineral pools yesterday. Even when living in Jarnac, with a more moderate climate, January and February there were somewhat wet and grey. I do miss the Croissants though...
While we certainly do have an issue with global warming for one reason or the other (did you know the earth fits into the sun 1,3 million times?), warmth and sunshine seems better to me for human beings than cold and freezing temperatures. Maybe a bit of a blue eyed, ignorant comment, but what if I am just happy that I don;t have to wear socks. No mood enhancing pharmaceuticals in my drawers either. All natural Vitamin D I need.
SUNNY & WARM
