Well, you do live in a freaking desert! (I lived there for a couple years back in the 80s, so I feel your pain - and sweat).

At first I thought you meant you were sick of "The Five" - I love that show. I was going to suggest just changing the channel.

Hah! True. When it gets below 95, you tend to forget about the summer. Come the end of September, I put the top down on the Solstice, and it doesn't come back up till mid-May.

Higher altitudes and cooler weather is just north of PHX. I hear Sedona is nice.

After years of blistering summers we are finally getting a break this year. Last year we hit 118 in August, this year weve been in the upper 80s most of the summer and are 27 inches above normal on rainfall. Take it while you can get it. Sorry you guys are suffering though! I can relate.

Yep. Was there last weekend, and in Flagstaff, where we went for dinner, was downright cold! 72 degrees, and we were outside for dinner. Damn near froze! The people who live in Flagstaff...well...they tend to be left-overs from the 60's. Many of them so high, they wouldn't know what temperature it was! (And I am not referring to the 7,000 plus foot altitude of Flag)

BOOYA!!! High for today in Oklahoma is 86! We have been seeing SUCH a relief the past few days. The rain has helped alot. But....it makes me wonder how bad the winter will be since these temps are unusual for this time of year. We had a record broken last year for us 51 days of 100+ degree temps in a row, was crazy

Geez..when I was at Ft. Sill, It even stayed over 100 all night, all summer! And no a/c in the barracks, we had to take showers 3 times a night just to try and stay cool.
