You know you are from Arizona when...

YOU KNOW YOU'RE FROM ARIZONA WHEN. . .

1. You can say Hohokam and no one thinks you're making it up.
2.You no longer associate rivers or bridges with water.
3.You know that a "swamp cooler" is not a happy hour drink.
4.You can contemplate a high temperature of 120 degrees as "not all that bad, after all it's a dry heat."
5.You know that you can make sun tea outside faster than instant tea in your microwave.
6.You have to run your air conditioner in the middle of winter so that you can use your fireplace.
7.The water coming from the "cold" tap is hotter than that from the hot" tap.
8.You can correctly pronounce the following words: "Saguaro", "Tempe", "Gila Bend", "San Xavier del Bac", "Canyon de Chelly", "Mogollon Rim", "Cholla", and "Tlaquepacque", "Ajo".
9.It's noon on a weekday in July, kids are on summer vacation, and not one single person is moving on the streets.
10.Hot air balloons can't fly because the air outside is hotter than the air inside.
11.You buy salsa by the gallon.
12.Your Christmas decorations include a half a yard of sand and 100 paper bags.
13.You think someone driving while wearing oven mitts is clever.
14.Most of the restaurants in your town have the first name "El" or "Los."
15.You think six tons of crushed rock makes a beautiful yard.
16.You can say 115 degrees without fainting.
17.Vehicles with open windows have the right-of-way in the summer.
18.People break out coats when the temperature drops below 70.
19.You discover, in July, it only takes two fingers to drive your car.
20.The pool can be warmer than you are.
21.You realize Valley Fever isn't a disco dance.
22.People with black cars or have black upholstery in their car are automatically assumed to be from out-of-state or nuts.
23.You know better than to get into a car/truck with leather seats if you're wearing shorts.
24.Announcements for Fourth of July events always end with "in case of monsoon..."
25.You have to explain to out-of-staters why there is no daylight savings time
26.You can say "haboob" without giggling.


I thought this was cute and mostly true

Very cute and mostly true...I must be an Arizonian at heart, or maybe I've lived on the desert too long....thanks for sharing, Doug.

Had to laugh out loud, Doug, sister in law who we saw last night lives in Sun City, and would agree, yet she and my brother plan to buy a larger home there, and leave Calif. permanently, after some family issues are over with. Love the "haboob" though...........

When ever we drive over the border from New Mexico into Arizona, Flagstaff, my dh gets some kind of allergy, I mean he has to take a benedryl right away, his eyes water and turn red, don't know what causes it, but it has happened every time we drive that way............does anyone know what is in the air there, is it a grass or weed that is there and no where else?
