There are a whole slew of cons to living in the desert.
I mean, it isn’t fun to feel like your lungs are melting when you get in your car on a 115 degree day.
And I must admit 110 degrees in October gets to feel really old.
But man, there are some serious pros to cancel those puppies out.
One of my favorite “pros” is that the day after Thanksgiving you can have a swim party with your extended family:
…And the day after that, you can leave your not-such-a-hot-hiker-six-year-old with the best babysitter ever and take your other four ragamuffins on a beauty-hike.
That can be followed by family games at your Dad’s office.
…and an awesome pizza party with friends in their own back-yard pizza oven… …followed by an art-extravaganza.
Yeah, there are definitely some perks to living in this hot place.
Oh man do I ever love this winter weather.
