    Re: Anti-Arizona Humor

    But complaining it’s hot in the desert is like complaining it’s cold at the North or South Poles. No?
    I don't know why anyone does live in Phoenix except it's not too cold in the winter. A lot of people do have pools. But it's bad enough that some people even have remote sensors in case the electricity/AC goes off while they are at work (and their dog is home).

    As long as there is a Dairy Queen on the way, I will somehow suffer through

    Re: Anti-Arizona Humor

    I did find it ironic though that the “feels like” is cooler than the actual temperature.

    In the prairies here it usually close to or above the actual temps.
    Along the Eastern big cities like Toronto and Montreal it usually feels like 35c when it only 25c

    The weather forecast has heated up some more to 105F/41C on Sunday, so I will be removing all caloric restrictions on anything cold

    Do they ever have any good temperatures? Glad it's getting better tomorrow.

    Make sure you stay hydrated and maybe sustitute your food intake from stuff like kale or birdseeds for things like french fries and chocolate chip cookies (the real unhealthy kind is very important!) That way if you get baked by the sun in the vehicle on the drive there you'll at least smell good

    It's a dry heat and I know you lived in Florida so 41C is probably easier to tolerate than 35C out there.

    we get the joy of being able to change what we compain about constantly. From Damn it's cold to damn it's hot.

    It's actually awesome here in Manitoba in spite of the potential for temperature extremes. I don't think I'll ever miss the humidity out east. You feel like you're swimming when walking outisde in the summer and in the winter you could dress like an eskimo (correction inuit) and the damp cold just eats through to your bones. Breathing there is difficult in all weather conditions... here it's mostly only when we hit the "hell freezing over" point. Like when C and F both agree on how friggen cold it is at -40

    That's true. It's the humidity that destroys us in the east. It can be unbearable. But Florida is like that too. At least southern Florida.

    The ocean breeze is nice though, like being on vacation. Otherwise, you can get the Everglades swamp experience

    So the best way to enjoy South Florida is to have a condo/apartment near the beach. They are relatively affordable if not on the beach itself, especially with roommates (potential headaches).

    The heat though is a good distraction from the crime and wrong-way drivers

    Some stores in Phoenix like CVS even lock up body soap behind glass because of frequent shoplifting.
