Poll: Desert Living

It is rather amazing that despite all the hype regarding the climate, far more people live in hot climates than in cool ones. Many of those hot climates are deserts. To be fair, there are cold deserts as well as hot ones and some deserts are both hot and cold.

For example, for many years I lived at the edge of what is called the Oregon High Desert. This area covers most of the southeast part of Oregon. It typically gets less than 10 inches of precipitation per year, which makes it a desert. Yet, the temperature gets above 100 F / 38 C in the summer and down to around -20 F and C in the winter. Most precipitation falls as snow, which means that the summer is usually dry.

Some deserts appear barren, yet there is life in most deserts, even when it isn’t evident, too.

The poll questions that follow deal with living in the desert.
