Have the AC off and all the windows and doors open right now. Feels good.

While 100 degrees in Arizona is not as bad as 100 in Indiana, it is still TOO HOT. I live in Michgian and we get some hot weather in the summer, sometimes even 100 degrees. The difference is the fact that we dont see 100s but once every few years, and over 90 maybe 6-10 times a year. In Arizona its 100-115 for months at a time. Sorry thats crazy hot, like sticking your head in an oven. Even the southeast cools off for alot longer periods of the year than does the desert southwest. The upper midwest states have change of seasons, green grass and great lakes. Ill take my cold and keep my greenery. I know some people like that climate in the desert but I just dont get it. Too dry, too brown, too hot, too many snakes and bugs. I like trees and water too much I guess.

Kuwait and Iraq are like that. Way worse than anything Arizona could ever throw at you. Trust me, do a foot patrol while it's 131 degrees and I promise you'll never complain about Arizona heat ever again.

I thought of that as I watched footage of our troops over there on the TV. I have the utmost respect for those who did that, I cant even imagine the danger and extreme conditions they faced. The heat, dustorms and then your being shot at while dealing with these things. We should all be thankful we live over here. Your right, Arizona or anywhere else in the US for that matter is a paradise compared to over there.
