if you like a furnace by all means move to phoenix. I needed an iced towel around my neck the entire time I was out doors. the two evenings were were out on the softball fields there was a mist trapped above. actually felt more uncomfortable as it was a steam bath.
Thank you! :) I spent all of 30 minutes outside without A/C and it about broke me. I cannot imagine wearing gear and a helmet in that crap. I think squids are idiots but in AZ I 'get it' why they would ride sans lid.
It's a big bowl that catches everything, and in addition to being incredibly hot, and incredibly humid, it also catches all of their own big city smog AND a lot of LA's. In LA at least you have the beaches.
