This one’s for all the newcomers to the Valley of the Sun.
Well, those of you who haven’t moved here from places such as Nevada and Texas where the climate is comparable.
We’re talking about the transplants who hail from the Midwest, the East Coast, even sunny California.
For those of you who landed in the 48th state last winter or even last fall, it’s time to pay up for all that winter sunshine and mild weather.
For those of you who just got here, you get to pay it forward.
Depending on which weather report you’re looking at, today is expected to be anywhere from 116 to 119 degrees. We’re gonna let you in on a little secret — 116 doesn’t feel much different from 119. Hell is hell.
So for those of you who left your snow blowers behind, Step 1 to keeping your cool is to treat this time of year the way you would your winter — stay indoors whenever possible.
