Carolyn’s note: Well, the Heat has arrived in the Southwest Desert of Tucson for 2022. It’s 101 degrees right now, and rising. Stay cool at these Cooling Centers when the temperature hits 110 degrees F. Watch that thermometer outside. I remember the hot hot hot summer of 2020 when the covid pandemic came to town, and people were afraid to go to indoor facilities to meet up with other people. But most folks are now vaccinated in 2022, so these Cooling Centers may be utilized.
