Is this the right place?

Sorry about the focus... 
 The blur of the thermometer has me totally dishevled. 
I had to blink once, twice, again. 

Okay, truth is - the heat is on. But 133???

And the second truth is that we moved our outdoor thermometer sensor. 
We have been moving it a lot lately. 

We're trying to find the right spot for a true afternoon reading.
I know, I know - a little white shelter, sanctioned by the NWS and NOAA.

That's not going to happen. 
So, for now, the sensor is in the gazebo.
125? Not likely.
5% humidity. Pretty close on the mark.
Rainy clouds? Not a chance.
But the message is loud and clear:
Welcome to summer!!

There's no going back, is there? We might be at 133 before too long!

If we ever get past our Arctic Seattle spring, I might be gloating about our summer vs. yours. Ah, but it's a DRY heat. Yeah, yeah.

It's lovely in dirtville, this time of year; except for the incessant wind. I don't envy you, your summer or your current temperatures. I wouldn't know how to survive either!

I was just in your fine state (Sunday) and I froze.

133? Yeah, but it's a dry heat!

Time for a new battery, me thinks...

And I'm coming to AZ in two weeks. I always pick the wrong time for everything. Oh, well, May/June will be better than July/August, won't it?

i think our 94 is hotter than your 125 because we have humidity and yours is dry. what do you think all of you AZ people? whatever the answer, it is HOT here to and headed for hotter. crank up the AC and be glad we live now and not 100 years ago... yowsa no ac???
