As you all know by now, summer is upon us once again. Being from San Diego, the summer is the best time of the year. There are always things to do both inside and outside. Mostly outside however as the weather is so beautiful. Here in Arizona I have found things tend to go a little bit different. The heat out here can get to some pretty high temperatures, and I’ve even seen as high as 120. Now at first this shocked me, but in the year I have spent here, things have turned around. I like to compare Arizona heat with the heat that you feel when you open the oven to check if the food is done, but it feels like that all the time. The air is stuffy and sometimes the wind can feel like fire.
I’ve never been a huge fan of the heat, which is ironic because I have lived in two places that are known for their high temperatures. I always preferred being able to put lays on as opposed to wanting to peel my own skin off and lay on a bed of ice.
