After living in the middle of nowhere for over 20 years I was more than ready to return to the major city.
In the middle of nowhere part of the country I lived in the climate was very hot as well.
I was always having to run my central air conditioning system constantly and it was costing me a fortune! Much more than the rent on the house I was staying in for 10 of those 20 years! So I decided it was well time that I moved back to the city where I grew up in across the country and not have to deal with cranking the central air conditioning system all of the time. The winters there could get pretty brutal. But that is a small price to pay and I would rather run the central heating system for about 3 or 4 months out of the year than to have to run the central air conditioning system most of the year. That will save a lot of money in the long run when you think about it. Even with the cost of living being higher in the city, it still is cheaper when you take into account all the money I blew on energy bills from having to run that gosh darn central air conditioning system all that time! It was so hot that getting a portable air conditioning system unit to try to save money was completely out of the question. It would have been a waste of cash because it would not have worked at all. Central a/c was the only way there.
