Not as much changing as you'd think. Oustide of the Valley or Tucson, hardly anything changed since I lived there.
Like I said before, we lived in Scottsdale in the 80's. My youngest son was born there and when he selected college, it was AZ State in Tempe. So we got to know the area all over again.
That whole 5k' foot middle band of the state is probably going to be attractive to you. Winters are mild. You get a little snow, and the next day it's blue and 70. Personally I liked the desert, though. I never minded the heat if it was under 107. Soft resort air most of the time. Wonderful evenings.
Course, I live in Boston now, so the desert is looking pretty heavenly in December.
