Larry -

I didn't make my point clear, I guess, not that it really matters. Throughout the southwest, we always hear "But it's a dry heat!" And to some extent that is accurate. Through much experience, my wife and I have come to the conclusion that the lack of humidity is worth about 15 degrees of temperature. So 105 in Phoenix (or Austin) feels like about 90 here in Maine.

But when it is raining - 100% percent humidity! - it is no longer a dry heat, and there is no "discount" on temperature. So sure enough, 105 and raining in Phoenix feels like 105 in Maine. Of course, Maine never gets to 105, whereas Phoenix, like most of the desert southwest, gets there routinely.

Monsoon season in Arizona is a challenge for those who live there.

Time to get out the "It's so hot" jokes:

It's so hot, the birds have to use pot-holders to yank worms out of the ground!

It's so hot that farmers are feeding their chickens crushed ice so they don't lay hard boiled eggs!

It's so hot my seat belt buckle turned into a branding iron!

It's so hot, I saw two trees fighting over a dog!

It's so hot, I ate jalapenos to cool my mouth down!

It's so hot, I went to the CIA and asked to be waterboarded!

Here in Utah, the weather is 95 and hazy, kinda like our two Senators.
