This is really no different than living in the north. Here in Michigan, we hibernate for only 3 - 4 months of the year due to the weather. Our habits of staying inside during unbearable temps/conditions are completely opposite, but still end in the same result!

But, in MI, a lot of people (including me) still take advantage of the cold temps (skiing, snowmobiling, etc.). Probably can't do much anything in 110 degree heat that you couldn't do in 80 degree heat.

Correct vital...only real difference is I don't have to shovel sand in the summer

Not much to do until the sun goes down, and even then, A/C is full blast.

UPDATE:

Record has been tied.....going to try for to set a new one today.

The high temperature Tuesday in Phoenix was 111, which was a record-tying 28th day this year of 110-degree-plus temperatures in the city.

An excessive heat warning will be in effect from 10 a.m. until 8 p.m. for parts of Arizona, including the metro Phoenix area.

The National Weather Service is forecasting high temperatures Wednesday of 112 in Phoenix, 113 at Gila Bend, and 114 in Yuma.

You do realize that after that picture, I had to wash my eyes out with soap. Now everything I see is pink, including Stan'* sig pic. I think the image is permanently burned in my retinas.

On another note, I see you couldn't just let Barry Bonds be the only record setter this summer. Always after the spotlight, aren't you?

MI...skiing... We call your slopes "Bunny hills" around here. LOL. And that crust you guys call "snow"... :P *I learned to ski in MI, when I moved to UT I thought I died and went to ski heaven*
One thing about high-humidity climates is that you can hop in the lake and it feels good in the water and out. Here in the dry west when you get out of the water you become a walking swamp cooler and it'* downright cold until you dry off. Then you're hot again.

Set the new record yesterday, looking to add on today :(

A heat advisory has been posted for Phoenix, which Wednesday broke its record for most days during a calendar year of temperatures of at least 110.

A National Weather Service forecaster says it best - an oven produces dry heat, too. "You can put your head in the oven, but that'* not comfortable.''

If it'* any comfort, Cerveny says we've had hotter summers. "Even though we've had a lot of days above 110, the hottest temperature we've had this summer was 116."

The all-time record was 122. "We've hit that high before. It could possibly happen again."

It was 113 Wednesday, which tied the record high for an August 29.

The National Weather Service forecast a high of 110 for today.
