Hello again, Alan.
Have you tried this site for affordable housing in San Diego: http://www.sdhc.net/
Click on anything of interest to you on the left side menu, like 'affordable housing guide'.
I would not recommend Nevada, as it is a desert (arid) atmosphere and very hot and dry in the summer and colder in the winter. Arizona has a similar weather pattern and reaches triple digits in the summer; also dry heat. In the winter, it gets quite cold for a couple of months and in certain mountainous areas there is snow.
Texas is also quite hot and humid in the summer in many places and coastal areas are more prone to be affected by tropical storms and hurricanes. Also, very humid in most areas in the summer. Texas experiences many tornados. Here is more information about their weather, year round: http://www.traveltex.com/places-to-go/weather
They do have mild weather (average temp. 73) many days of the year, but depending on the city you're in, the temps can vary. Research different cities like Dallas and Austin, at the link above.
Colorado is quite cold in the winter and gets some snow, but their summertime weather can also be quite warm in some cities. However, you can find more information on many cities in Colorado by checking out this site:http://best-cities.findthebest.com/d/d/Colorado
You can find the same information for cities in Utah, here:http://best-cities.findthebest.com/d/d/Utah
You'll also find this site interesting re: weather in the Western cities:http://www.farmersalmanac.com/blog/2006/10/05/the-10-best-weather-cities/
I would recommend first establishing, based upon weather/temperatures, where you would like to live, and then look for affordable housing, according to your preferences.
