Facts About Arizona Summers [[Help Us Stay in Business]]

Fact: Arizona is hot as hell in the Summer.

It's so hot in Arizona in the Summer, you start sweating when you walk out the door first thing (like, before 7) in the morning, regularly burn yourself on the seatbelt clicker, get sunburned driving in your car, and can cook eggs on the street (not really- we tried it one time to no avail).

Fact: It's way hot for at least 5 months out of the year.

May's Average High Temperature: 93
June's Average High Temperature: 103
July's Average High Temperature: 105
August's Average High Temperature: 103
September's Average High Temperature: 99

Fact: The average summer high temperature is the hottest of any area in the United States after Death Valley, which is the hottest of any major city in the United States, and approaches those of cities such as Riyadh and Baghdad. The temperature reaches or exceeds 100°F(38°) on an average of 110 days during the year, including most days from late May through early September, and highs top 110 °F (43 °C) an average of 18 days during the year. On June 26, 1990, the temperature reached an all-time recorded high of 122 °F (50 °C). Thank you Wikipedia.

Fact: The GROWop has no air conditioning.

Fact: Without AC, we will be out of business until the weather cools down : (

Fact: A super special, amazing person donated a four ton AC unit! Now we need to raise money to get this little (big) baby installed! Anything will help! Got an extra nickle layin around? That's more than we had yesterday! Anything, I mean ANYTHING, would be such an amazing help. 

Fact: We are having a fundraiser. If you're local please stop by. It'll be fun, with local music, live painting, a dance floor, bonfire and more. Pretty please help us spread the word about this important event!


  1. no A/C in AZ is not cool! literally! the party sounds awesome. i'll try and help anyway i can as soon as i can, you're shop is great! good luck!!!

  2. ive always wondered what it was like to be in arizona... have you been to vegas? im guessing that it's almost the same thing because its ony miles away? anyway... the sad part is the nights! you'd think it would be a little cooler at night like it gets in california... but NOOOOOO... it stays HOT! O_O right?

    you guys are having a party over there?! awesome! at least it would be a cool day/night {:

  3. Good Luck. I live in drizzly England where if you walk out the door and begin to sweat it is because you have got the flu. haha!
    I hope your fundraiser goes well.

  4. I'm gonna do my best to be there! I work 10 hr days on the weekends, but hopefully a nap and some coffee will rejuvenate me enough to come and enjoy :)

  5. I secretly wish it was this hot in Utah right now!
