The Natives Are Getting Restless

It's sort of hard to bitch about a little Arizona heat when so much of the rest of the country is actually melting, burning down and without power. I've come across lots of fellow natives lately that wonder if it seems hotter this year or are we just getting older and crankier? It IS getting hotter.
Since January 1, U.S. hot temperature records vs. cold ones are running 40,000 to 6,000.  But gratefully on this Independence Day, Scottsdale made a little record of our own, sitting on a lounge chair pre-fireworks by the pool, eating watermelon on the Fourth of July, rainy and 79 degrees.
