Quite some time ago, I posted "A Lil Bit About Arizona" and I explained that Luis and I had moved from Florida to Arizona, sight unseen in January, 1997. January was a good time of year to move here because it wasn't hot at all. In fact I was super, surprised to experience rain almost every day that month. And if you've never been to Arizona then this is probably news to you too.
Just because we live in the desert doesn't mean that we never get rain, nor does it mean that the temperature doesn't cool down. The truth of the matter is that typically from mid-October through mid-May our weather is delightful; and we do experience a rain storm from time to time. The summer months and September are usually when we endure our highest temperatures; but it is true that it's a dryer heat, so it's not usually as uncomfortable as a high temp accompanied by humidity. Don't get me wrong; I'm not gonna try and convince you that at 118 it's not HOT, cause IT IS; but at least we're not sweating profusely.
