Its not even hot this week. You shoulda been here 2-3 weeks ago, when we were barraged by 2+ weeks of 112-116 degree temps. Plus, Tucson is cooler than Phoenix by a few degrees. You actually came during a period of decent summer weather.

I've spent a lot of time in the PHX Metro Area. I always visited in June/July/August. I hiked Squaw Peak a few years ago when it was at least 115 degrees. I have never had an issue with the dry heat, I actually like it. I was in PHX last month for 8 days. I rarely broke a sweat except for hiking North Mountain. Even then, I was not nearly as drenched in sweat like Florida when I go jogging. Here in South Florida, the humidity is BRUTAL. You can't go to the mailbox most months out of the year without sweating. During the summer months if it isn't hot and humid, it rains all the damn time.

I'm back from a month in the Rockies. It was 116 today. Yesterday in Telluride it was 66. I think the snowbirds have the right idea.

Yeah no kidding. If I were to live in the low desert areas (Phx, Tuc or gasp, Yuma) I'd probably have to snowbird it, too. I'm thinking maybe spend the summers in the Pacific Northwest or coastal CA? Better yet, I'd choose to permanently reside in Prescott, AZ at an altitude of around 5,000+ feet. If only the economy, job prospects and affordable housing were better in Prescott and surrounding areas like chino valley, Prescott valley.
