I agree with Marcia. I live in Phoenix, Arizona and we experience heat 110+ often during our summer.

Was looking for an article not a Quiz. I know that I do not know enough. I live in Tucson and have been considering building an outdoor Avairy since we have warm weather year round but heat is something we take serious. This did not help at all.
