Most Extreme State? - Arizona Trivia Tuesdays

It will have to be a quick fact this week. I'm out of town for a couple days, and this wireless internet connection is iffy at best. Lasts about 3 minutes, tops, before it times out....

Converting to Celsius, I can se this is pretty high and pretty low. I think we can match the low, but not the high >:)

My brother lived in Arizona for many years. I know the climate differences between Phoenix and Flagstaff could be tremendous. Thank you for the interesting information.

Love,

I once experienced 124 degrees at Chichen Itza in Mexico. Thought I was going to die. I don't know how people live in hot climates.
