    Well after two long and slow driving days i made it to Phoenix and it is <font color=red>HOT</font color=red>. I don't care if it is a dry heat or not it's still hot and going to get hotter.
    I noticed around the corner from me in N. Tempe there is a house with a 72 blazer a 79ish blazer, truck and suburban anyone from this board ? I think i might have to go make a new friend.

    This can't possibly be the same smp that was complaining about Colorado just a month or so ago! [​IMG] It's about 74 here in Colorado Springs right now, with a light breeze. [​IMG] Check back with us in late August! [​IMG]

    I feel for you. I can't stand the heat. It's been really nice up here in Ohio. It has only gotten over 70 twice in the past 4 weeks. I love this weather.

    NO SHEEAWT! Man, down here in south Texas it has been well over 100 degrees and EXTREMELY humid lately. Nothing like driving in that weather and getting everywhere you go with a sweaty back and cheeks. And I KNOW some of you out there know what I'm talking about.

    I know exactly what you mean! I moved from Houston to Colorado Springs 3 years ago. Went from 98% humidity to 20% humidity. I've even seen days in the summer here when the humidity is 8 or 9%. Ahhh... [​IMG]

    It's not bad up here in Kingman today - according to my little porch thermometer it was a paltry 102.

    I'm so poor I can't even pay attention [​IMG]

    They are just about everywhere here. When I was growing up, just about everyone had one for the family cruiser.

    At least it's not a humid heat. Here, it does you no good to sweat. [​IMG]. Sometimes it's annoying, but damn I love Texas!!!!
