It depends on how my contract renegotiation goes. If they offer me enough of a raise to make it worth putting up with the summers here, I'll likely stay. But it would have to be one hell of a raise.

Ah come on Fivelives, the summers here aren't THAT bad are they? :lol:

Ok, ok, they're bad...

But I still prefer these to the ones I dealt with in KC (100 deg, 100% humidity). Ick.

Arizona summers are terrible.

Being in the Valley, I wholeheartedly believe that anyone who lives somewhere north of here has it easy. Whether it's true or not. :mrgreen:

I remember when I was stationed at Ft Huachuca in southern AZ, just walking the 50 yards from the building to the parking lot I wouldn't sweat, it would crystallize to salt on my arm in that short span.

Living where I'm at, our first 100 degree day this year was in the first week of March. Our last 100 degree day was in the week before Halloween. We came close to 100 again a couple weeks ago, hitting 92 degrees.

We had 22 days of summer where the temperature topped 120 degrees, and 7 days where the temperature topped 130 degrees.

For 3 solid months, (June, July and August) our overnight LOWS were over 100 degrees, with 4 of those nights topping 110 degrees. This place is hell on earth.

Lows over 100???

I was under the impression that it got rather chilly at night in AZ.

Luckily, the actual temperature usually doesn't break 100 here, but the humidity usually brings the heat index well north of 110.

Not in Phoenix - it stays quite hot at night here in the dead of summer. Tucson isn't nearly as bad (lots more open ground) - it'll usually get lows of 80-85 or so that time of year.

It's really nice right now, though!

(I'm a bit lucky - I have a lot of family in Flagstaff, and can escape up there for weekends during summertime *chuckle*)

While Arizona is definitely hot and undoubtedly uncomfortable, according to the National Climatic Data Center (on the NOAA website) Arizona only had a handful of days/locations over 120F and maxed out at 123F* this year.  All occurred in the last week of June through the first week of July.

Also no day had a low above 95.

According to wikipedia, the record high ever recorded in AZ is 128 and that was back in 94 (no idea how current that data is, it is wikipedia after all).
 
Maybe you are thinking of heat indexes or something.
 
*There was actually one recorded temperature that was slightly higher (125F) however, this seems to be an error because NCDC flagged it as an error (failed gap check) and it was in March with other temperatures from that location being significantly lower before and after, not to mention the low for that day was 44 (thus the failed check).  However, all the measurements are in the raw data, even the errors, so it's there.

well, AZ, even Phoenix, is the north pole compared to Camp Buehring, Kuwait, a little slice of hell on earth

I imagine a few of us in the military have spent some time there, and wished we hadn't

No doubt, but I will always maintain Phoenix AZ is its own special little hell.

Living in Phoenix earns you bragging rights. Also the need to wear sweatshirts in 77 degree weather, when your sibs from the Bay Area are wearing shorts.

It is not uncommon for at least light coats, sweaters, or long sleeve shirts to be donned for 77 degree weather.

Flannel and layers for anything below 68.

I survived the Blizzard of '77. Decades of Southern California and Phoenix have thinned my blood to the consistency of acetone.

Tomorrow night's low is 34 degrees. We may have to declare a national emergency.
