Screw you, subby!

It's a DRY heat. (and yes, that does make a difference)

It doesn't start feeling hot here until it gets up to about 112.

We had our 1st 100 degree day, in 2011 anyway, on April 9th. We broke records that year. 100+ days of 100+ temps.

/It sucked.

Yeah, until the Monsoon hits in July. The humidity skyrockets and the temperature drops to a frigid 110. Then it alternates between Steam everywhere and sheets of rain going sideways.

A comfortable 76 inside Chase Field to watch the Diamondbacks beat the Rockies!

I moved to San Angelo courtesy of the military with the car I bought in Germany. Black, with a black interior and no AC. Good times.

You are crazy. There is a reason I got my degree from NAU. The weather was sane up there. Anything over 85 degree is broiling.

Yes, there's that. Goldschmidt + Parra FTW! But the Rockies looked sort of anemic/piddly today. 2 runs on a passed ball followed by a wild pitch? Er... that's not how you're supposed to do things in MLB-level ball.

*cough* weather... it's annoying but I was raised in the U.P., eh? If I can learn to deal with 110+ °F after living with 200+" snowfall and 6-month winters for my entire childhood+adolescence, anybody can.

I have neighbors who spend half the year in Arizona and half the year in Ohio.  They hope that when they turn the A/C on in Arizona they can turn the heat off in Ohio.  Didn't work so well this year.

It gets hot here in Las Cruces, NM, but every time I think about complaining, I look at the weather in Phoenix and remind myself that at least I'm not there. Yeah, it's a dry heat, but it's still hotter.

I've always told people that I prefer "Tucson Hot" over "Orlando Hot".

I used to work at a place in Phoenix that had a lot of people from out of state.  Many were always biatching and moaning, something like it's too hot or it's too dry, etc.  I would give them directions to I-10 and tell them to pick a direction and keep going until they passed one of these.

True, even though lot of people don't buy it.  I spent an August in Tempe with my brother and regularly walked several miles in the 110-ish weather and it was no big deal.  Problem is, Phoenix can get freakishly hot even for dry heat.

And triple-digit dry heat doesn't sound bad right now.  The perpetual 60-some weather in Santa Monica gets old after awhile.

Also in Tucson you're not eaten alive every summer by mosquitos and every other bug in creation.  Also you don't have to deal with poison ivy and the poisonous snakes sound a warning before they bite.

After living in Minnesota for eight years, every time it goes above 105 here, I just want to take off my skin and lay around in my bones.

I lived in a shiatty apartment complex in the South West and even it had AC and a pool. And I'll take extremely hot summers in exchange for being able to walk around from November to April in what's considered Spring temps in the Northeast.

Actually I lived in Vegas, so no matter where I walked I was never far from a casino running the air conditioner at full blast.

68º F today.  Into the 70s next week.  Maybe 78º on Thursday.  No relief in sight.

I cook my turkey in a dry heat.

Hell it's been 95 at least here already, but I'll take hot over cold any time.   I can accept the 110 summers in exchange for the 68 degree february.   My girlfriend in Chicago just lost all the plants she planted to a snowfall last week.   I was floating in my pool.
 
2013-04-28 09:27:35 PM  
On average, the first 100-degree day strikes May 2, but the Phoenix area has been known to reach 100 degrees as early as March.

Yes, how very frightening that it would hit 100 about when it usually does and about a month later than the earliest it ever has.

And that's the problem. With such an extreme heat and low humidity, you don't realize how much you are really sweating and are far less likely to drink liquids while out in the heat, leading to heat stroke and things.

I just got back from central Florida where it was in the low 80s with 60-70% humidity.  I had to take 2-3 showers a day because I was sweating so badly.  Fark that.  I'll take temps in the 100s with 6-10% humidity anytime.

Holy crap you're not lying. One summer here in Jacksonville, FL I counted a mere 12 seconds before I started sweating. It's so humid that you can't ever fully dry once you've started sweating. I have family in western Kansas that complain about 60% humidity.
