Happy Fourth of July! Out here in Arizona, I guess you could say everyday is some variation of a summer day. But the Fourth is a guaranteed hot one. Our summer days make us dream a little bit about our youth “up North”, wherever that is for you. Consistent 100 degree days greet us by the end of May, and do not leave until we are well into October. By time Fourth of July hits, we also start to deal with the Monsoon season. Humidity that was ridiculously low in the 3-7% range soars to the 40% range. Now I know, if you are back in the east or mid-west, 40% is a dry day. But it isn’t 108 degrees and no shade to be found along with the 40%. It’s hot baby!
