You Know You’re In Arizona When ….


You no longer associate bridges or rivers with water.

You can hear the weather forecast of 115 degrees without flinching.

You discover, in July it only takes two fingers to drive your car, because your steering wheel is so hot.

The best parking is determined by shade.....not distance.

It's noon in July, kids are on summer vacation and yet all the streets are totally empty of both cars and people.

You actually burn your hand opening the car door.

Sunscreen is sold year round and kept right at the checkout counter.

You put on fresh sunscreen just to go check the mail box.

Some fools will market mini-misters for joggers and some other fools will actually buy them. Worse.....some fools actually try to jog.

You see two trees fighting over a dog.

You hear people say "but it's a dry heat!"

People who have black cars or black upholstery in their car are automatically assumed to be from out of-state or nuts.

And you were here in May, when it's not as hot yet. Imagine July or August when temps hit 115 and 120!! devil.png

With the exception of this weekend, turns out May was actually hotter than June! So the weather aligned itself so you wouldn't miss out, Louise...just for you :-)
