You must be from Phoenix if...


Hot weather is on a lot of folks minds across the country right now.  I hear folks complaining about it almost every day online and off. I for one am not complaining as I think we Phoenicians have it made in the shade. LOL no pun intended! 


You see, today it's about 113 here in Phoenix which sounds really hot, doesn't it? But compare that to 96 back east with humidity about the same, 96%. I know, I know, it makes me start sweating just thinking about it.


 SO NO THANKS, NO humidity for me!

I vote for Phoenix Summers!

I remember all too well what that kind of weather was like growing up with hot and muggy MN summers - and we had a summer lake home and it was still miserable.  Nothing like taking a few showers a day just to feel human.  And the idea of dressing for business - like really dressing up sounds horrible.  How do you folks do that and stay feeling fresh all day. Let's not kid each other, you don't!


Here in Phoenix we all dress down in the summer with very light clothes, sandals and big sun hats.  The only time you'll see somebody in a suit this time of year is an attorney going to court. And that's probably just for only as long as he/she has to be there.


So I say if you're sick of the hot and muggy weather back East in the summer and you're not fond of the snow, ice and cold in the winter - well - what are you waiting for?


Give me a call and let's get you settled here in the Phoenix area!  A home with a pool might be just what you need!

Gotta go, it's pool time now! See you in Phoenix!

Ha ha , you crack me up Anna, this post reminded me of when I lived in Boston, MA and we had the four H's.... I went to visit a friend of mine in Mesa, AZ and he kept telling me to drink lots of water. Always putting a bottle in my was the weekend that you guys hit 115 degrees for the first time...and people were making T-shirts about surviving it:)Endre

Anna a 113 degrees is still 113 degrees.  That is still HOT HOT HOT even without humidity in my book.

Right about now, I would take you up on it, as the humidity has been brutal, but then I look at how lush and green our landscaping is and how much I love cold and snow, so we stay right where we are.  

Ironically, my business partner is in the Phoenix area this week and she is in absolute heaven; she loves the desert heat.

Good morning Anna. Hot is hot and while you get used to anything, I don't want to.

Sacramento has temps that can reach into the 100s.  We're not quite as hot as Phoenix, but our humidity seems to be in a sweet spot. . .Not to dry, and not to humid.

HaHa, Anna! I have to say that this morning, it was about 85º out and I had to stand outside for about 10 minutes, talking to an arborist. By the time I went back inside, I was dripping sweat!

You're so right - the humidity can be a killer - especially if your body just doesn't tolerate it well at all! LOL

Hope you & Gary have a great weekend...

Endre Barath, Jr. , 115 is just another day here.  I think you are referring to the day in 1991 that we hit 122.  The airport closed down because it was too hot for the jets to fly.

Im a retired police officer and I was riding a police motorcycle that day. It was brutal!

Our temps have gotten up to 85 in the afternoon for the past few days now, and the men in my neighborhood are whining constantly.  I'd like to hear someone say something besides "It's hot." I think if it got to 115 they'd go to the grocery store and sit in the beer cooler. (Last year they considered it )

Meanwhile... I work in the basement, so keep a heater on by my feet much of the time. I get too cold sitting still when it's 68 degrees. When I go outside the heat always startles me.

AND... When I go into a store or restaurant, I take a jacket. Can't handle that AC.
