Yeah, I like Albuquerque. I lived in Michigan (metro Detroit) for a lot of years, and found the change in weather refreshing when I moved to New Mexico. Lots and lots of Sun!
And nothing too extreme in the way of temperatures.
That said, I also visited Seattle several months back, and was enchanted by it. Who knows, maybe I've had my quota of Sun and can adapt to some (drizzle and) cloud cover again. But for now, I'm content to stay in "the dry country."
Anyway, things have a way of working out eventually, I'm sure they will for both of us.
Regards and well wishes,
