    ha ha. 4 years ago flying out of PHX we had snow. it was a SOB.


    Sometimes when I reflect back on all the beer I drink I feel ashamed. Then look into the glass and think about the workers in the brewery and all of their hopes and dreams. If I didn't drink this beer, they might be out of work and their dreams would be shattered. Then I say to myself, "It is better that I drink this beer and let their dreams come true than selfish and worry about my liver."

    Yeah I'm checking in with this thread. It did get to 20 or so here in Wichita today though. My friend that I stayed with is already texting me bugging me to relocate to Phoenix. Since I'm looking for a job, I'm considering it. Got a great snow picture from my folks who went up through Flagstaff and the Grand Canyon yesterday.

    You can get houses cheap cheap cheap in Pho. right now. Not sure what the job market is like though, and the summers would be a ***** too. But so is winter here. We ate outside on patios a couple times down there, that was nice.

    Yeah, that was really nice. Tons of patio dining options there too. The heat can get pretty bad up there in august (before this week, i'd only been to PHX twice, and both times in august) , but at the same time, its a dry heat for the most part. And its a lot more fun to go find a pool to go cool off in than to bundle up and still freeze.

    I found a real estate book at our hotel, Houses are dirt cheep down there. 3 bedroom 2 bath with a pool backing up to a golf course 1500 sqft. $99,000. I bet they would take $85,000. and that one wasn't even bank owned. I am thinking about purchasing a house and moving back..........if I could find a job.

    Love living in Iowa... If I lived in Arizona or Texas I wouldn't be able to go to every home game at JTS. That alone would be like living in hell.
