Keeping cool in the AZ Heat


The weather is officially heating up in the valley. Here are some easy ideas to stay cool in the Arizona heat.

  • Turn off the lights

  • Block out the sun - blackout curtains or window tinting/film works wonders

  • Keep all windows and door closed

  • Drink LOTS of fluids

  • Don’t overwork your electronics

  • Cook outdoors - this will keep the heat out of the house

  • Don’t use heat-generating appliances during the hottest parts of the day (Dryer, dishwasher, oven, etc)



“As we work to combat the spread of COVID-19, access to resources that can help support families and businesses in this time of need is critical. We’re calling on Arizonans to be informed, get engaged, and support organizations doing important work to keep our communities safe and healthy. Arizona will get through this together.”

- Doug Ducey, Governor of Arizona

Arizona Trees


Why do trees fall and/or uproot during monsoons? Are there signs you should look for? What can you do differently?

The Palo Verde tree, one of the most commonly planted trees in residential areas is native to Arizona. So why are they uprooting during monsoons? Jessie Byrd with the Native Plant Nursery in Pima County says it’s mostly due to overwatering. Since Palo Verde trees are native to Arizona they are not meant to be watered as frequently as most people do. This makes the trees grow a lot faster, making the wood really weak.
