    Anybody in Phoenix? Probably the only other place hotter than here today....

    Right now in Vegas it is 115. Tomorrow, supposed to be close to 120. I have to go outside and start my car to let the aircon cool the car down before I get in it to drive any place... (much like those of you that live in cold climates have to start your cars in the winter to let the cars heat up). Man it's HOT!

    Death Valley is 122 right now....

    Phoenix was always a pain in the ass in the summer. Temps exceeded the aircraft takeoff performance charts
    so often you couldn't leave until night, if then..

    LOL...yeah...the first time I ever spent time there I checked that out.
    It was 10 a.m. and 90* so I decided to walk around the hotel and see about this "DRY HEAT".

    Well, it ain't so folks 90* is 90* and hot, no matter what they say..LOL :)

    This very first time I went to Vegas we landed at night at midnight and I remember the captain saying the temperature was 97 degrees...AT MIDNIGHT LOL
    Boy when I stepped off that plane I almost couldn't breath, it felt like a blast furnace :blowup:

    And being in the pool during the day in 112 degree heat you still were hot.. Thank god for freon

    There are no news wire stories on it yet, but the local news is reporting a man left his 18 months old in a car today for three hours... needless to say, by the time he "remembered" the child's brain was, literally, cooked. This happens at least once a year if not more.
