And ignore the morons who say 114 is too hot. We have A/C and pools for that, well the smart people who live low do. This year I have been in a 130 degree temperature span, from -19 to +111, and 111 was actually comfortable so long as I hydrated. -19 burned my exposed skin, despite being calm to almost perfectly calm.
Is there a point to this? No.

I find myself longing for the Southwest again...

I have finally let go of my desire to live in New Mexico. The crime simply became unbearable.
I had a strange experience when I moved to New York from ABQ in 1998. I was running on a road out in the country in New York and heard a car approaching from behind. Instinctively, I took cover behind a tree and watched as the car passed.
Strangely, nothing happened. No one shouted obscenities at me from the passing car. No one flashed gang symbols at me. No one threw empty beer bottles at me as the car drove by. No one got out of the car and tried to chase me down for "fun."
Another car passed, and again nothing happenened. And another. And another. Still nothing happened.
In ABQ I lived in the NE Heights, a nice part of town. In a span of 5 years, my apartment was broken into 3 times, home invasion once, my truck was vandalized dozens of times (especially when parked at the trailheads), mugged twice, assaulted while jogging almost daily. Since leaving ABQ in 1998 I have not had any problems with crime at all.
Ah....It's good to not live in ABQ anymore.
