My goodness I have heard that all my life. But it’s a dry heat. Do you know how stupid that is. So is your oven. I think before you can move to Phoenix you should have to sit in front of your oven on Thanksgiving day as the turkey cooks with the door open. If you can sit there for an hour and not move or bitch about the heat then you can move to Phoenix. Yes in the winter we have some of the most wonderful weather in the world. But in the summer it can be hell on earth. We have night time lows of a cool 100 degrees, and days of 115 or more for months. Cars break down and people die due to the heat every year. And they are people who know better. We still have people who come out here in the winter and die because they don’t know how hot it gets. Remember our winter is most peoples summer. The best advice I can give you on moving to Phoenix Arizona, is stay alive turn around and stay home. I think it’s so funny that people come out here in the winter and say how nice it is. But they are never here in the summer. That is when we who live here year round earn the right to say and say with some pride “I’m from Phoenix.” The truth is in the summer, we don’t go out and hang in the park, go to drive in’s, or walk the main streets of our city. But we do love our city and want to keep it the fine place to live grow and bring up our kids.
