    Looks like we may be moving to Arizona at the end of summer, it get's to be 100-120 there in the summer I am wondering if my runners will fair well. I will install misters and have a kiddie pool possibly dig a pound but do not want to take my chances of cooking my lil girls.

    With plenty of shade, misters and a pond I would think they will be ok.
