The 122 turns Sweet Sixteen.

It was sixteen years ago today that the temperature hit 122 at Sky Harbor. A friend remarked the other day the last time we had so many days in a row above 110 was that summer sixteen years ago. I am worried. What was that like? Anyone not totally in denial want to share a story?

    Sheesh, was it really 16 years ago? I remember getting out of work that day and noticing that the wind kind of burned, but other than that I was shocked to find out later that it had been 122.

    I lived in Phoenix then…and holy moly…I remember getting off work (around 11pm) and thinking, it’s still got to be near 105-110…it was unbearable to be outside. I remember people getting burned from the metal closures on the seat belts.
