    Yep, I hear ya! --
    For everyone else, at 7% moisture 113f is like 103f at 50% humidity, (something like that, you mileage may vary).

    I was in Phoenix and I don't care what they say about it being dry. 114 is HOT! But at least AC is just a matter of misting water about 6' off the ground so it will evaporate before it hits the ground. But PREscutt (I will never again say Prescott) was temperate.

    You got that right! Humidity has nothing to do with it, when the thermometer goes over 90 degrees. 7% or 90% humidity, it's miserable either way!;)

    Places like Denver are why I live in the desert southwest. Been wearing short sleeved shirts for a month now.

    Just like the old saying, "It's not the heat, it's the humility!"

    New homes begin in the $170,000 range and cost of living is low. It's a poor state and unfortunately at the bottom of nearly category. All and all I would recommend it because of the weather and fantastic Mexican restaurants. Plenty of hiking trails and places to see and the mountains and ski slopes are only 100 miles away

    If anyone is still following "We're Still Alive!" Still waiting for our Elios.
    A lot has happened in the last 2.5 years since my last post here. The 3 amigos in the picture have all passed. We lost Charlie (papillon) in March of last year, Abby (brown head) in February, and Buddy (black head) in June.
    We sold our duplex and rented back the small side.
    Looked into building a house on our property. Way to much money for a small house.
    Found a small house (1060 sq ft) on 35 acres (closed last week) for a lot less than building new. It needs work, lots of hail damage on the outside and paint and carpet inside but we have the time and money to "Get er done!"
    My daughter and family moved to Utah.
    My mom moved to Washington from Minnesota.
    My niece (Air Force) Is in the Middle East...,,,again!
    My oldest grandson had his bar mitzvah on the 27th of October, same day as the shooting at the synagogue in Pennsylvania.
    Wife Has put in her papers for retirement. Official date February 1, 2019.
    Plans are to hit the road in April! Without our Elio.

    That's exactly 3 years after I "retired". Sorry to hear about the 3 amigos. Congrats on the house and land. Great update. It would be wonderful if I could give a similarly great Elio update but, alas, tis not to be.
