@MarthaStewardessI so totally agree. I stay home or go from a/c car into a/c stores. I only do my shopping early morning or at night.

What's nice about living in Colorado is that I can drive up to a higher elevation and it's a whole lot cooler up there. For example, right now it's 45' atop Pike's Peak. AHHH!Woman Very Happy

shanus---should be delightful for you then--my weather app says in the 70"s for next 10 days but our real summer usually starts on the 5th of July----can get warm here but no humidity. And it will change every 15 minutes too---no idea what July 19th will be!

seamaiden---I like it a little warmer--anything up to 80 is good for me.

@Spurt.  We've got the Rio Grande running right through the middle of Albuquerque with high stands of cottonwood on both sides.  There are paved trails people use for walking, bicycling, horseback riding etc.  They get downright paranoid in a dry summer about fire in the Bosque.  The fire dept. and police patrol it and chase off squatters.  There was a small fire there this afternoon, much less than an acre, and 12 big fire trucks from 3 communities showed up.  The cottonwood trees are shedding their cotton right now and they say its extremely flamable.  They're very protective of that area.

Glad to hear that your area is taking precautions, better safe than sorry.....

 

At our State Parks here they have covered up all the gas grills at all the picnic areas and campsites....too dangerous!!!
