A GREAT SUMMER IN SOUTHERN ARIZONA

LAKE PATAGONIA- A ROOM WITH A VIEW It’s been a great summer for us this year.  Not really very hot.  Doesn’t seem like there were that many days of over 100 degrees.  In our rural area it is very comfortable in the mid to low nineties.  I balk a bit when it goes over 100. [...]
