Northern New Mexico is beautiful and the mountain desert isn't what people think. Besides being immune to all natural disasters (if you're smart enough to keep out of the arroyos when it's raining in the mountains) my home town is even off the worst-case nuclear fallout wind patterns.

I suppose the rain in the mountains helps provide the water that other desert communities have to "borrow" from distant aquifers. (I think I'd much prefer N. Mexico to West Virginia!) -- PurpleKoolaid

I was born and raised there and I must inform you that West Virginia floods all the time. They had a particularly nasty one last year after Hurricane Ivan (not as bad as Katrina though).
