Talk about the Weather

LAS VEGAS–Overheard in the back smoking / poker sauna area (where the extra restrooms are) …

Change100: My god! I’m going to get a sunburn just walking to and from the bathroom!”

And at the front smoking porch area — where and picked up and dropped off by taxis/limos …

Mussy British guy: My god, man, this might be the hottest place on bloody Earth!”

Actually, the hottest place on Earth right now is Death Valley, Cali., just a few mountain ridges away. The high temperature there today was 123°F (felt like 118). Here in Las Vegas, it was only 114°F (felt like 114).

But still, point’s the same … we are in the middle of a major heat wave. Amazing that right now, a little before midnight, no sun in the sky, it’s 104°F.
