All I know is I woke up this morning in Dayton Ohio and it was so damn cold I had to scrape ice off the windows of the rental car. Hours later I am sitting on my porch in FH wearing shorts and loving it. Nothing like that to put into perspective how great we have it here in AZ!

I'm still running my air conditioners 24 hours a day in Florida. We had a nice cool front about a week ago. But then the heat and humidity crept right up again. Right now at night it's 70 degrees but 88 percent humidity. There might be another front moving through, or it might peter out before it gets here. All you do is wait for the next cold front here. Before you know it winter is already over. At least when you all cool off it stays that way, you don't have that humidity spoiling things. I'm convinced that Phoenix and Tucson have more net hours per year of open-window weather that central or south Florida do. Neighbors of mine leave their windows open and tell me how great it feels, but I HATE that feeling of sticky sheets on my bed. I belong out there don't you think?

Dry is better I think most people would agree. Dry does mean cooler at night though. We are in the 50s at night now and will be in the mid 40s by late this week in outlying areas. Days will get up near 80. That is quite a bit different from FL I think.
