Moving to Phoenix Arizona

Hey guy’s I am back on the pros and cons of living in Phoenix Arizona where I am from originally and where I currently reside. Gosh at least a month ago, I think you specifically asked about being an artist and what that community is like and my mom’s an artist and I know back in the day she used to complain about the fact that there really wasn’t much of a scene here. We do have art galleries and whatnot and out in the Phoenix and Scottsdale areas but I wouldn’t call it a thriving community necessarily. We’re not known for that but I don’t know a whole lot about that community. So, I would encourage you to do maybe a little bit of googling on your own but you never know you know you might come out here and be fairly inspired.Phoenix Arizona

I’m going to start with the pros and start on a positive note. The winters here are very mild. I mean they’re just beautiful. We don’t get snow. We don’t even get, ok you know, actually our last winter we did get a little bit of snow but nothing where you had to like shovel it or anything like that and honestly, I think it was the first snow in decades. If you do want snow you can go up to Sedona, Flagstaff, Prescott or Payson, they all get beautiful snow and they’re only a car ride away from Phoenix.

The local food here is so good. I just love it. I really do and it’s not necessarily just Mexican food we have although I do love that as well but we do have the Fry Bread House which is the Indian frybread place that we love. We try not to go there too much because the Indian frybread tacos are calorie bombs. But I promise you they are the tastiest thing ever. So, good Indian frybread is here. We also love the Cornish Pasty Company and they’re like delicious hot pockets, basically, and you know you can get them filled with anything from like hamburger meat, cheese and onions and French fries. I think they even put them in there. Or I like the one that has chicken tikka masala in it. Postino’s is amazing. They do a killer bruschetta. They also have wine which is a big plus in my book and it’s just a really cool place to hang out as a well great place to take your friends. Oh, the Grand Orange is another place that sells amazing food. I love their pizzas, they do sort of the sourdough crust and it is really good. They have great salads, great sandwiches and they’re just a great local joint that we like to go to.

The historic district like in Canto, Willow and Arcadia they’re just really, really charming bits of history. When you go to these places, we’ve driven through we’ve walked through, it doesn’t feel like you’re in Phoenix. We one had to hire a tow truck when our car broke down. Our Tempe Tow Truck Service driver was really funny and knew all the great places in Tempe, Gilbert, Chandler and Mesa, pretty much the whole Phoenix east valley. Growing up you know, I spent most of my time in the suburbs and so it’s a lot of sprawl and you know, cookie cutter homes, not that there’s anything wrong with that but that was all I knew until my husband who grew up in central phoenix kind of showed me. There is a lot more to offer the diversity is improving. I will say that it’s improving. Again, growing up here, not that many nationalities, at least in the suburbs. Central Phoenix was a little bit better but you know Continue reading

The Heat is Gone and Some Trees Also

The desert monsoons are winding down and thankfully so is the humidity and heat. We have had some pretty intense storms that have knocked down some large trees and produced a lot of debris. Such is living in the valley of the sun.

These monsoon storms are good for tree businesses and landscape companies who are needed to clean up the debris and remove fallen trees and branches. It is surprising the amount of plant life in the desert and how much care is needed to maintain them. Check out the best tree service in Mesa if you need to keep your trees trimmed. That are also great at tree removal.

Nature is really resilient and adaptable to surviving in the massive heat here. The most rain I have ever seen has been here in the desert and I have lived in the pacific north west which is known for rain. When it decides the let loose here and rain it can come down so hard that visibility is not much beyond the front bumper of the car. This means that it rains so hard traffic on the freeway comes to a stop.

The winds are equally fierce during these monsoons. Trees and branches are fallen all over the area. Probably not a great idea to park your car near trees during the monsoon season here. Good chance of some damage to the car in these conditions.

Now we look forward to the long and really mild season from fall through spring. This is a time many choose to take local trips and excursions so the limousine companies do better here. There is a lot to see and this is a really spread out area.

If it wasn’t so hot here in the summer this area would become another southern California with the beautiful winter weather here. Most who have moved here from the north where there is snow say they would rather shovel sunshine any day.
