Phoenix Arizona is the place we call home. Phoenix is amazing. Yes it’s hot in the summer, no getting around that, unless you have a pool, that helps, but it’s the 300+ days of sunshine with an average year round temperature of 78, it’s a 2 hour drive to the mountains for snow skiing, 5 lakes within 40 minutes, one of the best job markets in the country and we have the Grand Canyon. These are some of the reasons we live here.
But for a little fun, there are some significant signs that one can tell they are from Phoenix. Let’s count them down;
10. You prefer to be called a Phoenician
9. You make certain to park in the Shade
8. You find humor in the summer heat
We have a television station called Fox10. The weather guy in 2015 had a major glitch in his weather map but did his best to make the most of it. When this happened he was live on the air, it was not staged, and yet it was hysterical to us locals. Check out that video here. It’s worth it.
