After walking by our resort like pool for 4 years, I finally got the nerve to jump in. The heat will not bother me now.

It's funny how the grass is always greener on the other side (particularly) on my side in this case LOL
I am planning to move at the end of the year to the Phoenix area. We have had a particularly cold winter in WA and I am looking forward to thawing out.
Irony, the stuff you mentioned sounds great. I trading with you and moving to wa (Federal Way). The grass is greener where you are. When you come down here, look at the landscape, its dirt/gravel with planted trees and shrubs. Very colorful though.

Every year it's gets hotter and hotter here sooner than the previous year and it lasts longer and longer each year before it finally gets cool again.

What I have noticed this year is the allergies. Haven't had them for years until now. yikes!
nose runnning all day, I hate that! I think it could be those scruffy things that are suppose to be trees around here those little yellow blooms fall off of, I saw they had some new ones ready to plant at my kids school, and I looked at those thinking, you mean you actually paid for those! lol

The nice thing about Phoenix is that if you really want a break from the heat, you can drive less than 2 hours away and get it. I will gladly take a hot summer over tornadoes or floods or other disaster weather any day!
