Yep you will deffinately regret it about that time of the year. Summers in Texas where I used to live got up to 120 degrees. Trust me its not fun, unless you just love that kinda weather. But I believe Arizona gets a little bit hotter.
But we have very little humidity (especially compared to Texas). I won't lie to anybody, it gets brutally hot here in end of June, July and August. September is usually pretty hot too....but some years it isn't too bad.

Like those that live in the colder climates, you get used to it and we stay inside as much as we can in the hotter months just like many northerners do in the cold months. Only real difference is... in the colder climates you can keep adding layers of clothes to fend off the temperatures. But, here, to stay cooler, there is only so much clothes you can remove without breaking some sort of law

Yes that is true lol. I agree with the layering clothes and takeing them off. Hell we used to have to run around in our swimsuits or stay inside when i was growing up because it would get so hot and thats all we could wear with maybe shorts over the swimsuit without getting in trouble.

I didn't want to have to resort to reposting this, but, apparently the local ordinances around here during summer are not that strict.

UM...pics 9 and 10....."WARNING" for the squimish or faint of heart:

Summer temps here aren't as high as AZ, but they get into triple digits for a while. We have low humidity as well, but next time I'm getting cooked walking from the car to the mall...er...I mean monster truck rally...and one more hosehead says "It may be hot, but at least it'* a DRY heat.", I'm going postal on the dude.

SPEEDOs should be outlawed, BTW. *wretching continues*

I'll tell you what.. I'd happily trade my cooler sweat your self to death temperatures for the dry heat you have.

Well, back to the topic of snow...

It'* been snowing all day here. That should make for a fun ride home. I don't understand how poeple can forget how to drive in the snow, considering how short our summers are here...

True nothing is good on ice (unless you put on spikes or chains I suppose) but it'* always good for going down the roads that don't get plowed, it'* also good if you do slide off to help get back on (granted I've not needed it for that reason yet) but I have had it use if for a few time last year (worked a odd shift and the parking lot didn;t get cleaned till the next morning few cars had to wait till the next day for the plow to get out)

**one day last winter on the way to work seen a green jeep on it'* side strange thing is on the way home was another jeep that looked just like the first one on it'* side too.

Welcome to driving my 97 Chevy pick up.

Try towing something behind a truck with no 4x4, automatic, and v8 on snow/ice covered roads. Talk about life being interesting.......
Not me not now lol
