I’m a Prescott AZ snob

Downtown Prescott

Yep, that’s right I said it. Since moving to Prescott from Chandler 20 years ago, my toleration for some things has diminished.

A waiting line in a Restaurant.

Are you kidding me? We have to actually wait to eat in a restaurant? This is what I thought to myself in a Restaurant in San Diego. Though Prescott has great restaurants, they aren’t normally crowded. We do have events which will bring many out-of-towners to Prescott, but usually it’s easy to get a seat


Prescott’s rush hour is laughable compared to what I have dealt with in Phoenix. Phoenix’s rush hour goes from 3:30-7. It could take you an hour to move a few miles. In Prescott, cars can get backed up on Gurley and Sheldon from 430-530. It may slow you down for about 10 minutes.

Clean Air

I was visiting Phoenix two weeks ago. The smog was really bad. My brother said to me “I prefer the air in Phoenix. I can see it. I just don’t trust air I can’t see”. For me, I’ve noticed that I can actually smell the air in Phoenix.

The Mild Weather

People in Phoenix say “It’s not that hot” Their admittance tells me that they are admitting it’s really hot, it’s just not enough to kill you. I grew up in Phoenix and said the same thing. Now, I find it hard to tolerate temperatures above a 100 degrees which is pretty much the whole summer in Phoenix.
