Our trusty local Phoenix TV weatherman, Royal Norman, told us last night we were going to have a heat advisory for today. Then he said, for this time of year in the Valley of the Sun, that was the same thing as issuing a freeze warning for Nome, Alaska in January. As residents in the Phoenix area say under their breath (to keep everyone from laughing at them), "Its Dry Heat." Take it from me, dry or not, 115 degrees is uncomfortably warm. In this weather it is best to have some gloves with you when you go out. You need them to open the car door without blistering your fingers and put on while you attempt to steer your car with a steering wheel that is probably as hot as a stove burner. At least 3 more months of 100 plus temperatures for us. You can check Phoenix's current temperature in my little weather box on the right hand side of the blog.
Time to hit the pool!
