A nice overview but it would have been nice to mention our other season (which we are suffering thru right now.) Monsoon.

Thanks! I wrote this before monsoon arrived, and this is my first year in PHX, so I had no idea how the temp and humidity would fuse into an impenetrable block of heat from which there would be no escape. Well, except for air conditioning. Someone should write about THAT, the invention that made Phoenix possible. -dwkp

Before that wonderful invention, I'm told they would hang sheets of wet burlap up to form a sort of giant swamp cooler, it wouldn't have helped durning this time of year tho...
