Today it is expected to be 120 degrees.
Your eyes are not deceiving you.
Today is the first official day of Summer. Meanwhile in Scottsdale Arizona we have been enjoying summer type weather since May. The humidity today is only 6%. You don’t even have to be outdoors to know it’s dry. Hydration is of the utmost importance. And being outside as little as possible is everyones intention.
Think back to winter… the last blizzard up north. You did what you could to stay home if possible. Did your running around before the storm arrived, and spent as little time outside as you could.
This really isn’t any different, just in reverse.
This will be the hottest day of the year, from here our temperatures drop. The monsoon arrives and our humidity goes up. And everyone is out and about again.
So this week (maybe last week too) I spend as little time outside as possible. In another few days, I will have the house open every morning. Enjoying sipping my coffee and reading my email on the patio. In another month, we will be back enjoying dining on out on our patio too.
So yes, you can and will enjoy outdoor living in the summer in Arizona.
