And just like my mom, all I wanted to do was to stay home in the air conditioning
Before we know it, Summer will be here in Phoenix. And of course, during the Summer is when we experience the hottest temperature. July is typically the hottest month where the temperature will climb into the triple digits. So, when my friends and family want to visit, I always advise them to come between October and May, when the weather is pleasant outside. Because the temperature is usually in the 60s to low 70s during those months, it makes it easy to enjoy outdoor activities. My mom came to visit once during the Summer, and I felt bad because it was so hot that all she wanted to do was to stay home in the air conditioning. I was able to convince her to go out for a few days, but I had to take her to places that had air conditioning. We ended up going to an art galleries, then we went to a few restaurants, and we ended a couple of evening with a movie. She was quite happy with that because we spent very little time outside in the heat. My mom lives in the northern part of the country, so she is not used to the dry heat that we have here in the desert. Naturally, it was a shock for her, so I can understand not wanting to spend too much time in it. When I first moved to Phoenix, it took me a while to get used to the heat. And just like my mom, all I wanted to do was to stay home in the air conditioning. The heat no longer bothers me, but I can’t expect my friends and family to get used to it like I did.
