Heat in Vegas
I may have chosen to live here in Las Vegas because I prefer heat to cool, but that does not mean that it cannot be too hot for even someone like me.
It is a blast furnace outside right now.
The predicted high for today was 116 degrees. Currently (at 3:45pm) it is 113 in the shade, and even hotter standing out in the sun (my thermometer shows 121 degrees in the sun, but it is not calibrated that high).
Anyway, it is a bit uncomfortable....
Update: CNN has some more information here. (We tied the all-time high record today; Woo-Hoo!!!)
