01/09/15 Grif.Net – Snowbirds in Tucson

One of my friends sent this “oldie but goodie” about the Snowbirds who leave
the frozen tundra and head to Phoenix or Tucson for the winter. You know
you’re in Arizona in January because:

Every restaurant in your town has the first name “El” or “Los”.

You think six tons of crushed rock makes a beautiful yard.

You notice your car overheating before you drive it.

Everyone treats a red stop light as merely a suggestion.

You think someone driving wearing oven mitts is clever.

You no longer associate bridges (or rivers) with water.

You know a swamp cooler is not a happy hour drink.

You can be in the snow, then drive for an hour and it will be over 100

You discover it only takes two fingers to drive your car.

The pool can be warmer than you are.

You can make sun tea instantly.

You realize that Valley Fever isn’t a disco dance.

The water from the cold water tap is the same temperature as the hot one.

You actually burn your hand opening the car door.

Sun screen is sold year round, kept at the front of the checkout counter, a
formula less than 30 spf is a joke.

You can finish a Big Gulp in 10 minutes and go back for seconds.
