Valley of the cold
It was chilly last year when OU played in the Fiesta Bowl. It’s even colder now.
I know, you don’t want to hear from someone in Phoenix, griping about the temperature, when it’s snowing and 34 degrees back in Oklahoma. But it’s remarkable how chilly it’s been in the Valley of the Sun since we hit two days ago. Highs in the mid-50s, which are nice. But that means lows in the 30s; with nighttime temperatures in the 40s.
Overcoats are not the standard Phoenix attire. It gets cold at 9 p.m. when it’s 44 degrees. Last night, we went to a pizza joint, which had only outside seating available. We sat outside, underneath about three heaters, and as long as the heat was striking us directly, it was OK. But move two or three feet to the side, and you got cold. Wednesday night, OSU practiced under the lights, finishing up about 6:45 p.m. Phoenix time, and it was cold. Perfect football weather if you’re in pads and working up a sweat, but cold.
Good news: it’s supposed to warm up, into the 60s the next few days and 67-69 for highs by our game days.
