Living in the desert...

Las Cruces, NM, is a wonderful place to live. After time, though, you find some differences between living in dry country versus wet.

Elastic dries out and crumples into pieces with time. Rubber gives up, too.

The heat will bake out your tires.

Cheese and cracker snacks have cheese that resembles fondue down here - it was hard and solid up north.

You need to carry water with you everywhere to stay hydrated.

Blistex and other medicines develop some very odd colors after storage for a time. Up north things lasted forever - here the heat works on it.

Using GooGone or other cleaners for your books means you better have some good quality hand moisturizer - or your hands will crack!

You need some salt in your diet or your body complains.

Fresh fruits and vegetables sit better than heavy food.

And the longer you're here, the hotter it has to be before you put on shorts...
