You’ve Lived In Arizona If…
You no longer associate bridges or rivers with water.
You discover, in July it only takes two fingers to drive your car, because your steering wheel is so hot.
The best parking is determined by shade…..not distance.
You realize that “Valley Fever” isn’t a disco dance.
You can make sun tea instantly.
Hotter water comes from the cold water tap than the hot one.
It’s noon in July, kids are on summer vacation and yet all the streets are totally empty of both cars and people.
You burn your hand opening the car door.
You think a red light is merely a suggestion.
All of your out-of-state friends start to visit after October but clear out come the end of April.
You think 60 tons of crushed red rock makes a beautiful yard.
Your house is made of stucco and has a red clay tile roof.
Vehicles with open windows have the right-of-way in the summer.
People who have black cars or black upholstery in their car are automatically assumed to be from out of-state or nuts.
You know better than to get into a car with leather seats if you’re wearing shorts.
You know a swamp cooler is not a happy hour drink.
You take rain dances seriously.
When a rainy day puts you in a good mood.
When you drive two miles around a parking lot looking for a shady place
The temperature drops below 95 and you feel a bit chilly.
You would give anything to be able to splash cold water on your face.
You realize that asphalt has a liquid state.
