It is F'N hot here. Someone told me today "but its a dry heat". I said that so was a blast oven. This sux hard! You have to stay in the pool cause you'll melt like a damn ice cream cone if you get out. One more full day until I can escape this heat.

That's part of why I lived in Flagstaff when I was in Arizona. 7000 feet elevation does wonders for the heat!

Because they want to be a Scottsdale cruiser.

I was okay with the heat. But when the temp. drops in the desert, from like 118 to 50 at night, it seems really cold.

There's a reason why Phoenix is full of old people.

The furthest west I have ventured was my time in Oklahoma in the summer. I can tell you that the dry heat is hot and miserable, but humidity is even worse. The shit(humidity) just strangles you when it gets high.

Phoenix should have a parade on the birthday of the person whom invented Air Conditioning...The Valley of the Sun would have a much smaller population without it.

I like to think of it as not living here, but rather just a 2 yr. stay in hell. After that i never want to see the desert again.

Phoenix is great especially right now that my ac is doing it's job part time.

When I first moved to PHX I was swimming on Thanksgiving and thought it was great. Now I can't swim unless it's over 100 for a week or so.

I heard instead of grass people out there just have dirt yards. That would be great to never have to mow.

Oh come on, winter isn't that bad here. I'd rather deal with it than 6 months of 100+ temperatures.

I honestly think I would like it down there. I'm always cold, even in July...

I actually a lot of times don't turn on the AC in my car for a few minutes after I turn it on cause I like to feel the heat. It'll be like 90 out, but I love just sitting in that hot car. Who knows how hot it is.

And if the chicks down there don't wear any clothes, how do they not turn into a lobster?

Phx was great when I lived there... Maryvale County was scary back in the early 1990's...

The heat is dry and not so bad, its worse in YUMA....

Im just glad I had a pool... everyone has a pool in Phx

I would figure living there wouldn't be bad at all. Dry heat isn't all that bad but you have to carry water around all the time. Its pretty damn dry here in Denver and upper 90's and over 100 isn't bad at all. Not nearly as bad as the midwest at the same temperature and hardly the south.

I totally agree, but 115...

In the midwest below 20 sucks in the winter too. You can still do stuff in the mornings with that kind of heat.

Yeah I noticed that when I was out there last July. It was 105 when we were at the Royal Gorge, but without the humidity it wasn't terrible and you could actually get some relief in the shade. If it's 105 here it's absolutely unbearable.

Don't ask me why or how I saw this (I'm an amateur meteorologist...lol), but I saw the temperature in Phoenix one day was 112, and the heat index... was 109... It was actually so dry, it felt cooler. HOW?

I'm just pulling this out of my ass, but the heat index is a "feels like" temp. Since moving air can change perceived temperature, I would guess maybe it was breezy that day.

Or it was a mistake.

It's like being in an oven, for sure. It's a dry heat, but I've never thought it was really enjoyable. If you've ever walked around downtown Phoenix on a 115 degree day it's like cooking your head. I guess if you've lived there for a long time maybe you get used to it.

So, how was everyone else handling it? I mean, when you'd mention it to others would they look at you like you were a dumbass?

Sorry, I'm just curious...

I remember being in Phoenix once when it was 110+ F. The rental car guy said, "make sure you crack your windows when you park, or the windshield might break."

My response, of course, was, "Are you f*cking kidding me?"

It can actually get so hot that the air becomes so dense airplanes can't take off. Well they physically can take off, but the heat causes the air to be so dense that planes don't have enough runaway to lift off with a load of passengers before crashing into the end of the runway. I don't think it's all that common but it's possible.

It is kind of a funny equation...

One of the hottest deserts in the world + a town of about 3,000,000 RIGHT in the middle of it = WTF!?!

Its different for countries like Egypt, cause they sure as hell don't have any place else to build a Cairo, but yet we build a desert city, and if I'm not mistaken, reroute a river to go through it? Something to think about...

All true. They stop flying when it is +120F for that reason. Also, it was a chilly 111F where I was today. Its 12:40am so i'm going outside now that it is sub 90F. :banghead:
