I'm not sure it is just temperature, I think the obsession is with the weather in general. Having said that, the weather here can be extreme and also change very quickly, one minute sunshine, next minute driving rain, hail, tornados etc. So in some respects I believe the obsession is justified, people need to know what is going on with the weather.

Well I didn't realise that the UV index went above 11 until I came here. I'm sure in Sunderland it only ever got above 5 if there was a printing error in the local paper.

The odd thing about Tucson is that if it doesn't rain at the airport, it hasn't officially rained. Try telling that to the poor people who discover their roof leaks...

...which makes the 'Heat Index" a sweltering 147 degrees.

I am so sick of hearing how hot it is in NY or Chicago...come on down to AL/GA where it's been in the mid to high 90's since June with humidity's in the 95% range every day. Do we ever make the news? Hell no.
