Summers are "Indoor Fun" times in Arizona
It is getting so hot here in the Valley of the Sun…by the time I pulled into the parking lot at work this morning it was already 94 degrees out. Yep, that’s right…94 degrees at 8:00 am. Yuck!
By the end of the week it’s supposed to get over 115 degrees outside for the highs, and the 90s for our lows. Yowza! Definitely a drawback of living in the desert!
This is the time of year that you notice that no one is outside that doesn’t have to be. No children playing outside (unless you hear splashing from a backyard pool), no one out for walks with their dogs, and the local parks are like ghost towns. We all know better…we just sit inside in front of vents that are blowing air-conditioned comfort or underneath a ceiling fan going so fast, you would think it was going to just take off into flight by itself.
So hats off to everyone that braves the Arizona summers…we definitely have to pay for our wonderful weather for the other 9 months of the year, but getting through the heat of the summer is worth it!
