I would much rather have the heat than the cold, which is opposite of when I was a child. I had been pushing the TX hill county to her very hard but she just cant see it. I have several friend in TX from the service and even a few from high school and they all love it.
Then Montana, Wyoming and Alaska are probably not for you
I am just the opposite. I hate heat and can deal with cold much better, especially dry Western cold. I hate Eastern humid cold. I'm with your wife. Texas heat and humidity would be too much. It's way different than the Middle East desert if that's where you were. I spent 4 years in Southern IL and hated it. Never adapted at all to that.
Maybe high altitude Northern New Mexico would be a good compromise.
