I am a 76 year old man with moderate to severe copd. I am trying to locate the best places to live with my condition? I have been looking at both tucson arizona and the central gulf coast in florida. One is hot and dry, the other is hot and humid. Any information would be greatly welcomed.

    This is my first year/ winter w/copd, on inhaler. Cold air, under 34, was too much for me. For summet, Ive read some cannot tolerate humidity and others, the dry, airy SW is worse. So figure I will have to go through the seasons…posdibly making visits to each area. Pls keep us informed w/ your findings.

    I would move to an area at sea-level where a higher atmospheric air pressure would help with lung expansion and extra inflation.
