PHOENIX - A 78-year-old man suffered second degree burns to his feet on Saturday after walking outside without any shoes on.

Phoenix man suffers 2nd degree burns after walking on hot street

Now the brightest thing to do. Remember, its just as hot on your doggies feet. Don't take them for a walk on hot asphalt or cement or tar surfaces.

I guess it was those temperatures too in Phoenix in a super air conditioned room. But take away air conditioning and what would someone do? Before a few decades ago, I dont even think air conditioning was invented yet.
And someone still has to go outside for at least 15 minutes to do things. Its not like they can bring the air conditioning with them.

Most would agree that 55-80 degrees are their favorite temperatures, including me.

Do New Englanders transplant well to where you are (Northwest)? What about Arizona--do Northerners take to it right away or does it take some time to acclimate?

That's why they make special dog 'shoes'. For people crazy enough to walk their dogs in the worst part of the day! Even as a kid I knew better than to run around barefoot outside in summer!! If it wasn't hot dirt/asphalt it was stickers!! lol

Todays high was 108 in phoenix with a expected low of 89. Todays high here in so.ca/inland was 92 & tonights low is to hit 60. I would have a tough time sleeping with over night temps that high. mid 50s to low 60s is nice summer nights weather.

Default Taking the Heat

How do you stand such constant heat all summer long? Is Lake Havasu city a pleasant place to live in the summer?

I spend lots of time in the water,on the water or drinking water.
I love the heat. No such thing as a cool summer here.
It is a pleasant place all year.

Well I know for me that when I come down to service some of our facilities, such as a/c I am there as the sun comes up. I work until about noon or there abouts. It is hot and humid pretty much either be in the water or in your house or vehicle with the ac cranked up.

Low of 89? When it's this dry? No-- and, most areas in the Valley are cooler than the airport, any more.

yeah - it's not bad in the house at night .... the sun isn't radiating in and it's really dry so your AC unit can be pretty efficient in keeping it cool & comfy

I can keep the house set at 78 overnight and feel a lot more comfortable when it's still 90 outside at night then I ever could in the humidity back east, despite the summer nights getting cooler

Absolutely hate sticking to the sheets and sweating/being over warm at night ..... hasn't been an issue down here
