I used to feel Summer was the best season, but that appreciate ended when I moved to the southwest in high school.
- My dad was laboring for an IT supplier that decided to open its new corporate headquarters in Scottsdale, Arizona.
Right before they were set to open, they decided to send my dad as well as a slew of others there when they initially failed to hire enough new employees for the facility. He wasn’t cheerful, as well as neither was my mother. As part of the Phoenix metropolitan area, Scottsdale is in an typical desert temperature. Temperatures can exceed 110 degrees in the Summer season during the worst heat waves, with temperatures as high as 115 being possible as well. The two of us started taking trips to NM after my Grandparents moved there for their retirement. They purchased a condominium in the Ladera West village of Albuquerque, right between the Ladera Golf Course as well as the Petroglyph National Monument. The first thing I noticed when the people I was with and I visited Albuquerque was how much cooler the air felt to my skin compared to the city the people I was with and I had just left hours prior before getting onto Interstate 40 as well as heading east into NM. My sibling as well as I spent a Summer staying without our Grandparents as well as the people I was with and I had a blast compared to Phoenix. Temperatures were in the low 90s, which is comparatively nice when you consider the 112 degree Summer Phoenix recently had. If you want to live in the desert without melting into a puddle, Albuquerque is a nice option. Although the real estate market is getting tighter here appreciate it is in every other major American city after the COVID pandemic.
