Wow it's almost as if something as if warming our climate?? Blink Blink

That's interesting.  I lived in south east Arizona and June was not the hottest month.  Not that that means a thing.
I have an old friend from when I lived in Ohio who now lives in Tuscon. But only during the winter. He says practically everyone else leaves too.They have sunshine days 350 days a year. Blink Where did you live?

About 40 miles east of Tombstone.  But Tuscon swelters for sure.  This was in the late 80's early 90's.  There was a huge Snowbird culture there, of people who came to winter there and then left.  In winter it actually got quite cold.  For about a month.  It's funny how you say they have sunshine 350 days a year.  That actually bothered me.  I grew up on the coast of Southern California and was usesd to soft, misty spring mornings.  Much like early June here.  Waking up to blazing sunshine every morning was disconcerting and uncomfortable for me.
I lived in San Deigo for a few months back in the early 70's. I liked the climate but mostly I just loved the ocean.
Since I grew up in Ohio and moved here where winter was always not really a "winter" to me.
I've always joked about people who complain about the cold.

But at this point in my life I'm starting to dread the long wet drizzly gray winters. I would take sunshine all year long in a heart beat.

Winters here are kind of miserable.  Mild, but miserable.

Yeah but for me they didn't used to be.

I was born and raised in San Diego. I moved away after graduation. The climate and the beaches were the best!  As a child the worst part was earthquake drills (because thinking about the big earthquake coming was scary AF) and bussing (let the kids go to the school that are in their area with their neighborhood friends). I've been back a few times over the years... but I have no desire to ever live there again.

Because of the crowding right?
You would think so. But in my neighborhood there was no rhyme or reason to it. We lived a mile from the school... yet half of the kids were bussed 8+ miles to a different school. We also had kids bussed in to our school. I believe it had more to do with integration than over crowding.

I think during a certain time period busing was done just to be busing. I remember I was bused to a different grade school in fourth or fifth grade. I have no idea why. The racial population was about the same in all the schools in our district. Mostly all white with a couple blacks and maybe an Indian or a Latino or two in a population of 40 or so per grade per grade school. The busing didn't make any difference and only lasted one year that I remember. My sister and I were bused but my other siblings weren't.

Never did understand that but at the time I didn't much care either. I was kind of glad when I could get back to my regular school though.

That came about three hours after Denver broke the daily high record of 99 degrees, which was set in 1986.
