Triple Digits -

It's official. Arizona had its first hot flash this weekend. Today in my little neck of the woods (or gathering of cacti), it's supposed to hit 107. This is when the phenomenon of finding the shaded parking spot at the places we frequent becomes the most important and strategic move we make all week. Driving around looking for the slightest hint of shade covering from a dumpster, a building or possibly a tree. Unfortunately, most of our trees look something like this.

Ladies and Gentlemen, it's going to be a hot one. Put on your swimsuits and plan on staying under water for the next five months.

What is the weather like in your neck of the woods and what do you do to stay cool?

It finally feels like summer in Northern Utah. It was in the 90s this weekend. Yes! David was feeling much better yesterday and got our swamp cooler up and running, thank goodness. I envy the Arizona winters, but definitely not the summers!

46 degrees a week ago, now in the 80's, and I would not be suprised if it started snowing. Utah, the moodiest state.

We are getting hot here! But a very HUMID hot so whenever I walk outside I am instantly dripping with sweat. Sounds fantastic huh! But, I will be joining you in Arizona in 10 days. Yea!

Here in Houston we only have 2 seasons .. Humid and .. not so humid! :)

It hasn't been that hot just yet but I'm heading to Arizona tomorrow so I'm packing lots of lotion and plan on drinking LOTS of water.

I've been here 3 yars (holy crap!) and its amazing how used to the weather I am! When I go to Arizona I feel like i'm going to dry up and blow away!
