Getting windy here; got only about a month to get the rain for the wildflowers. Border Patrol guys have a nice side gig, though.

I am crazy busy getting ready for a week off while I take my Backflow Course for my exam the first week of March. I can't even check the forum, but this one I had to chime in on. Thursday and Friday...blasted with snow. 1' in four hours probably got foot and half total. Stuck in traffic jam for an hour trying to get out. Sat clear. Actually went to work.

Right now it is dumping big time. Snow then rain then snow. Paper work today.

CSR needs to grow hair first.

We need the moisture here on the front range. 3 grass fires yesterday here in C. Springs. Dry and brittle and VERY windy lately.

We need the rain. There's some good stuff coming in this weekend. Help fend off a drought.

Send us some, too, the wildflowers could use a drink.

What's it like living in the Desert? I've visited a few times and thought it was beautiful in a different way. Don't know if I could handle the heat in summer though.

It's great through the winter until early spring, we people from northern climes
have thicker blood, which, I'm told takes a few years to acclimate to the heat.
We bail when the temps get into the nineties.

You get used to it although I don't think I could handle Arizona's heat in the summer it does get much hotter and it is more humid there than here in New Mexico.

I'm in Orangevale, not far from Sacramento. We hit triple digits in the summer.

I've been on the coast in weather like that: the heat down here is all different. No breezes, you just fry.

Get in your car and take a ride up I-80 about 50 miles and find out for yourself.
The inland valleys are pretty close to a desert in the summers. :laugh:

Sounds like a nice Summer trip. Wait, let's make that a Spring trip.:)

Born and raised in AZ.

Lived through the hottest day on record, 124.
2 years ago, most days over 110. Like 24?

Like the others said, you get used to it. There are lots of nice days in the winter, and if youre an early riser, many nice mornings throughout the summer, though some nights, the low is 90+

I'd never get used to it. My body doesn't function well at 90+. Or else I'd hole up in my house with AC and margaritas.

I agree completely Mac I am the same way, but I can handle 96/97 before I lose function. I have never been a desert person. It's wonderful to see it out of the tinted window of an air conditioned vehicle...that's about the only way I like to enjoy the desert.

This is HIGH desert and I LOVE it so far. We did hit three digit highs for a few days, BUT 104 feels like 90 compared to anywhere w/ humidity. The heat index or "real feel" is LOWER than the actual temp. When we left NE KS in June, Heat index for my son while at scout camp that week was 110+. The hit 115 a couple of days. Actual temps were less than 100. Got here for the July 4th holiday and weekend. Next week the temps were near 100............felt a lot like mid 80's to us. Wife's parents are asking when we are going back to visit. I'm not fighting the passes in the winter and I don't think my system will agree with a "summer" trip. We might be early spring and late fall visitors only!

Living in the home of heat and humidity, I've always wanted to check out the desert and see if I could handle the temps. Like bic says, dry heat is WAY different than humid heat. Got some friends in Albuquerque (hey, I have no idea how to spell it) and outside Phoenix I might just have to go visit one day soon.

We are. at 100% of normal for the year for rainfall here in the Silicon Valley. The last series of storms brought over 7" to Saratoga between Thurs. and Sun.

Got a lot o0f work done yesterday and will get more done today and maybe tomorrow in time for a new storm Sunday. Snow here still sticking on surrounding mountaintops above 2,500 ft.

Having lived in both, I will take the dry heat over the wet heat any day of the week.

Too bad that is not the case for the snow pack. Another drought year for CA.

I can't handle the high humidity heat. It feels like someone stuck your head in a microwave oven.
