No thanks Mish, it's going to be in the upper 90's here also

At least we're suppose to go fishing later, I'll just hang my feet off the back of the boat, if it's warmer now, I'll just jump in.

Wimps.

Highs today through Wednesday are expected to be 100-105. Then we'll cool down to the 90's for awhile.

The average date for the first 100 degree day (they say) is June 17.

Z, I love Nevada - particularly Las Vegas. Considered living there for a while, but just couldn't take the heat. Your summer is about 120 degrees...ouch.

It is a wonderful and surreal place to live. The heat isn't really THAT bad (although it kinda feels like you're stepping out into a hair dryer sometimes in the summer). You just have to realize that, if you usually enjoy outdoor activities, you just need to schedule them for OTHER times of the year. The real heat only lasts for about 4 months.

I actually find it much more bearable than places where you have 4 or 5 months of winter. (I grew up in northern Iowa).

The heat's already set in..almost 80 and it's 9:45....
I'm not a heat person, but don't mind desert heat at all.
It's this darn smoggy-humidity-gross heat I don't much care for.

I'm totally with you there, J. I would much rather have a desert 105 than a humid 92 ANY day.

Thanks Z. Curious...there was a time I was considering real estate out your way, as the prices were incredibly low. Wondered what it's like now. Still don't know if I could stand the heat, but Vegas is enticing.
