    Here's the forecast for the next 10 days. This is beyond hot! And besides it is documented that Phoenix and several other cities in this part of the United States don't report the true temperatures because it would scare folks and keep them away.

    Man, I am almost afraid to come out, wish me luck. I have never been out west before so this is a first.

    Dry heat my *! Everyone has a yard, a pool, and lives in a lake community, the f***ing real estate developers are making this place nearly unbearable. Between the heat, the concrete, and the humidity, Phoenix creates some of its own weather changes[:0]

    You being from IN it's going to take a while getting acclimated. The heat can be a killer, take bottled water with you every place, and keep extras in your vehicle, even if it's a rental. Make sure your cell is working OK, also.

    "It's a dry heat!"

    I love that phrase. Be sure to pay attention to the asphalt as you walk through it, yes through it. The first time you put a foot down on asphalt in the middle day and watch it sink in about 1/2" you'll start paying attention to shadows and where you get some relief... besides the hotel pool and bar of course! Be sure to carry a bottle of water with you. After a couple of days of 112 degrees, you'll even be convinved that 90 degress at 7:00AM is cool.

    It's not that bad, really [;)], you just need to be a little prepared, that's all. [:D]

    Good luck!
