I'm not one of the ones gloating over the crappy eastern weather and even if I were, you and Steve-o can go kiss a snowman for all I care. I don't even remember what living there was like. Most of what I do recall is pleasant memories of the stuff I did as a young fellow in the winter.

My Christmas wish is that all the malcontents on this forum can find their way back "home" this coming year.
lol

The only thing that sounds possible in Phx in the summer out of what you wrote is swimming t-shirts and flip flops...

The person who you wrote that to mentioned "up north" which is where you go for river rafting and summer exploring. Phoenix itself is not an ideal destination to be in the summer by any means.
that is what I was thinking, you can do that in flagstaff in the summer but I dont know about phoenix, I hear about people dieing from heat exhaustion.

Sunscreen, sun visor and making sure to reapply. Even though I am hispanic, I can burn if I leave my skin bare.

Yep, hydrate, wear appropriate clothing, avoid the worst time to be out doing very active things; 2pm-6pm is the window of time I consider the worst...like I said, there weren't any 115 degrees days this summer in Phoenix; well maybe 2, there seems to be two sites with 114 or 115 as the high for those days.

There were more 110+ days in Phoenix but only a handful. Phoenix averages 17 days each year with highs that reach 110, this year was less I believe. I think 115 is just a number people through out there to make it sound REALLY bad...like saying Chicago is -15 degrees all winter long.

Default !st Winter back in New York

Well, I thought I would be spoiled after three years in New Mexico and two and a half years in Phoenix. This is my first official winter back in New York City in six years . . . I must say that I am enjoying it! Its amazing how quickly one can adjust. A pic of the first snow . . . A visit to NJPAC in Newark, NJ . . . now doesn't that snow look nice . . . time for some hot apple cider and homemade chicken pot pie . . . mmmmm

Thanks for pointing this stuff out. Its something I'll have to remember. 17 days of 110+ isn't too bad at all. I hear you when you say people think PHX has highs in the summer of 115 all the time. You know, a lot of people think that L.A. is warm and sunny all year. This is not the case as it can get chilly in the inland areas in the wintertime.
