It is hotter than blazing Hell here. 105 and the sun is beating down. It was somewhat unavoidable because of our wintering in TX and doing the Southwest from there, plus liking to spend a lot of time at places instead of hit and run, but suffice to say summering in the desert isn't the smartest thing to do.
I learned they have a monsoon season here in the, you know, desert. I'm not making that up. It will start shortly after we leave.
What they mean by "monsoon" here is basically a dust storm and it rains a little bit sometimes. Like, a very little bit. Their wettest monsoon genned up 9" of rain in 3 months. July, their rainiest month, gets about 1" of rain on average.
