It's been awesome here. Currently 75 degrees and I live near the Canyon Del Oro wash that is raging over the road. Watching big old tree's flying by. It was cool. Going to take the dogs for a walk along the Rillito river walkway shortly. Live out here long enough and you consider a rainy, cloudy day a nice day.



Yea, we get excited when it rains

I agree. Much better places to live in AZ.

On a similar note--now that I've lived in Arizona and now Virginia for extended periods--I'd definitely take AZ. The heat here and there is completely different. 95° and 80% humidity here is like hell compared to 110 and 10%. I'd rather be in an oven than a sauna.

It's been hit and miss with the rain but it is encouraging. Temps have been down a bit but with the monsoon humidity (ugh!)

Depends what you want Dude. Personally I'd rather live in Tucson, but my family are all still in Phoenix.. But then it's hard to say when I joined The Navy (from Tucson) it had a pop of .5mil when I left Phoenix the pop. was right around 1 mil. I-10 started way out west and 17 was the only freeway in town..

Kinda weird that where we used to go party in High School out in the desert is now all developed.. When I left, Bell road was the north end and Union Hills had still being paved with nothing on it, powerline road was a dirt maintenance road with power lines running the length of it.. And Luke AFB was "out in the middle of nowhere.".... Damn I got old.

Ended up going up onto Mt Lemmon with the dogs yesterday instead. A nice 60 degrees on top. Since the pastor wants more pics in our galleries; here's some as I headed up. Not all sand and cacti.

I spoke with Jeffery at LHBS Brewer's Connection here in Tempe.
He told me that the Thursday that it was 118, he had his biggest ingredient sales ever.

July is usually a miserable sales month for beer brewing in the desert.

Is this one good?
