It took me just one summer to get used to the Las Vegas heat. I still hate it but I can deal with it. Last night I was watching the channel 3 news and the weather man almost sounded as if he was panicking. He was so freaked out that I had to stop playing WinPoker and rewind to see what was going on. That’s when I snapped the picture above. It’s not just going to be hot for the next 2 weeks but he thinks it’s going to be record-breaking hot.
- Saturday – Las Vegas should break the record for hottest day (ever?).
- 10 Days – May be in the 110’s for a record number of days.
I picked a fine time to take a vacation in Vegas. Seriously. My hotel rooms will be as cold as a meat locker. I never make my house into a meat locker so this will be a nice treat.
Common sense should tell anyone that it’s hotter in the sun and that’s extreme in Las Vegas. You can add at least 15 degrees to the 117+ degree temperatures when you’re out in the sun. Let is be known that I’ll be hiding under the Fremont Street canopy on Saturday when I stay at The D. Sorry El Cortez. Sorry Mob Bar. OK, that’s probably a lie. Ain’t nothin gonna stop me.
The worst part of the heat is that it’s a dry heat. It dries out the skin more than you can imagine. I carry lip balm and I will be moisturizing all day and all night. I just hope that the casinos have enough moisturizer for me because I don’t need to get ashy. Yeah, I don’t like lizard skin.
Here are some hot weather tips for Vegas.
- Alternate water with your booze.
- Use lots of moisturizer on your skin.
- Use lip balm.
- Carry on.
- There’s nothing to see.
The heat stinks but if you’re in Vegas and you’re like me you’ll probably spend most of your time in a casino. My only real advice is to stay moist because this extreme dry heat can be annoying.
