This is going to be a cranky post, so bear with me.
"Summer" in the Phoenix metro area starts in May (sometimes earlier.) We easily hit 100º and stay there... for the most part... until November. 6 months out of the year, we live in an oven. The temperatures at the beginning and end of our summer will be, maybe 75º at night, but in the dead of summer it's easily 95º+ in the middle of the night.
So, I constantly hear, "Oh, but it's a dry heat!! I'd take that over our humidity any day!!"
Uh, I'm sorry, but I would take your few weeks of humidity and "hot" temperatures over living in an oven 6 months a year. No reprieve, no cool nights, no shade, no nice breeze. Then maybe *I* could complain that 75º is hot.
I know what you're wondering. "Why don't you just move?" I would. Really. But I haven't found a place I like that isn't swarming with liberals, has a corrupt diocese, or isn't a pit. Plus, I know this area, and as much as I hate the weather, I do like the amenities. I can be picky about doctors, dentists, and schools. I can shop at pretty much any store I can imagine.
So, I don't know. I know I won't stay here forever. But for now I have to.
