Sometime during the summer, 110 degrees is no longer just a high. It’s the norm.
With the break of day in the middle of summer, the mercury surges, eclipsing the 90-degree mark, then 100 and settling at 110. It will reach this same mark, or thereabouts, the following day, the day after that and the day after that.
Then 110 degrees becomes not just a daily high and a norm but 110 reasons you want to get out of town.
We at Southwest Living can’t do much about the heat, but with some suggestions from readers and the Yuma Sun’s Facebook friends, we offer an equal number of reasons to stick around.
You will see throughout the magazine, listed in no particular order or priority, 110 things to see and do that make the Yuma area the place to be this summer — or at least a more bearable place to be.
However you choose to pass the time from now through August, enjoy the summer!
#1 of 110 Victoria Zazueta-Beckman, Katie McDonald and Melissa Heras suggest seeking relief in the cool embrace of the river’s current. “Sit your booty on a sandbar in the river and in the evenings, swim under the Ocean-to-Ocean Bridge.”
#2 of 110 “Stay indoors and pray to God your APS bill isn’t out of this world,” says Patrick Hunt. Adds Arron Barragan: “Stay inside. Try to only do things at night, even checking the mail.” “Stay home and play board games, read books,” advises Alyssa White McIvor.
#3 of 110 Attend your children’s or neighborhood kids’ Little League or Babe Ruth games, or softball games. They may revive memories of your own former glory days on the sandlot.
#4 of 110 Alyssa White McIvor suggests indulging in cool-weather culinary arts: “Have a ‘salad supper’ with your neighbors to keep the oven off.”
#5 of 110 The performing arts don’t take a hot-weather hiatus, certainly not with the Historic Yuma Theatre hosting theatrical productions in its Summer Six-Pac 2012 series.
#6 of 110 Take a martial arts class from any of the area instructors in the comforts of a studio or gym with A/C.
#7 of 110 Go out to the desert, look at the Milky Way and listen to the coyotes, urges Nisa B. Sutton.
#8 of 110 Patronize Yuma-area businesses that stay open in the summer. Just because the weather’s hotter and muggier doesn’t mean the quality of the products and services they offer falls. Doing business with them helps ensure their long-term survival and prosperity.
#9 of 110 Find a church with a vacation Bible school for your kids, offers Alyssa White McIvor.
#10 of 110 Make bets with your co-workers, friends and family about what day in September or October the high will dip below 100 degrees for the first time.
#11 of 110 Plant cactus, which are heat-tolerant.
#12 of 110 Float down the river, urges Aryca Arizaga Marron, a families studies professor at Arizona Western College, and Kyle Hawkey, student programs coordinator at the University of Arizona’s Yuma Learning Center.
#13 of 110 Try your luck fishing at night for bass, catfish, bluegill, crappie and tilapia that inhabit the area’s lakes and canals and the Colorado River. Don’t forget mosquito repellent.
