|Subject: Re: How do I learn about Pheonix Arizona?|
For people who live in the desert...Phoenix or where I do, Vegas, heat is a
way of life. It is 112 today in my area of Vegas. Everything is air
conditioned. It is miserable to get in the car after work and drive home
but one survives. Phoenix tends to be about ten degrees hotter than Vegas.
I wouldn't say it is unbearable since there are a couple million people
living in the Phoenix area. Just do things as much as possible early in the
day when its only 100 degrees or about 7:30 at night when the sun starts
heading down. Just remember if you are out in the afternoon driving around,
that tempers flare fast on the freeways and at stoplights! As I recall in
late June and most of July, Phoenix has a monsoon season and it rains every
few days about 3:00 in the afternoon and cools things off for a hour or so.
The heat here is dry...like oven heat. You don't get all the humidity which I find much worse. We always try to convince ourselves that the heat isn't so bad since it is so dry.
