Howdy and welcome to the forum! I spent 4+ decades in San Jose. I thought I'd never leave. Unfortunately, my employer told me I could find a new job if I wouldn't move to Phoenix. Major bummer.
But it turned out to be a good move (except for this @#$%@# heat!). I never even tried to fulfill my gun addiction while I lived there and I didn't even realize until after I moved hear that AZ is NRA heaven!
Sorry about all you guys are going through; drought, floods, your governor and most of your politicians. But this is a friendly group here. Welcome!
