Or so I am told by the latest pop-up ad to grace my computer on Yahoo:



SORRY, I can't get the picture to show up.

I only know summer in Vegas means 120 degree outside
winning streaks come and go, losing streak never ends.

Oh yeah, well that too.

My wife's sister will always go on and on about how crazy hot it is in Vegas in the summer time. I tend to remind her that air conditioning was invented quite some time ago.

I won't go to Vegas June to Oct anymore.
It's just not worth it, with all the other
casinos available that aren't on the surface
of the sun. I used to go, up till around 2000
or so. Not anymore, screw that..

I'll take northern Michigan in the summer for $1000 Alex :-)

Speaking of Michigan, did anyone feel the earthquake in the western lower? EvenBob maybe?

Yup, a couple hours ago. Felt it in
my feet and the shelf in front of me
was vibrating. I knew what it was
immediately, from living in SoCal.

The last time I was in Vegas in the summer
was 2006. Every time I had to go outside,
I said to myself 'never again'. And I've stuck
to it, no regrets.

Already hoarding explosives the necessary resources to ensure that doesn't happen. You chose to live on the surface of the sun. You don't get to ruin my fishing because you now regret it.

I remember once staying at Sams Town in August. Walking from the hotel to the parking structure I felt like I needed a bath and a nap. The parking structure in August is hot as hell.

Live in Florida, summer in Vegas several times.

IMO, inland Florida (like Orlando) is exceeded in discomfort only by Houston in July/August. However, if you live/vacation within 5 miles of the Atlantic, the sea breeze makes all the difference. Very humid during the day, most people are in AC from about 10am to about 7pm, but the evenings are warm and pleasant. The convective activity (air mass flow) between the water and land reverses at night, with different heating/cooling rates, so it's virtually never calm, sticky weather on the coasts. It often is inland, though; heavy, muggy, hot air all day and night, only broken up by superheating air masses that give a predictable thunderstorm nearly every hot afternoon (which also spoils your outing).

Vegas summer is better than FL inland weather, worse than FL sea coast weather. Not sure how the Gulf of Mexico/FL west coast fit in; haven't lived over there. But a lot of what makes Vegas tolerable is AC everywhere. God forbid you should have to walk any significant distance in that heat. But we managed very well using the monorail in 115-120o heat, so short walks can be managed. And it does cool nicely in the evenings with the lack of humidity most nights.

I disagree. In the winter you can at least layer up to keep warm, in 120 degree heat there is only so much you can shed before the cops are called. I may be biased having lived all my live in the upper Midwest but the winters aren't all that bad. Plus the Twin Cities are utterly fantastic at snow removal

From Havasu, Vegas appears to have moderate summers. Broke a hundred a couple times already. Mid ninety's today.

A few years ago, I walked from Arizona Charlie's to Sam's Town in August; it wasn't that bad - besides, there's a reason there's God's own number of 7-11s in Vegas. Then again, put me in New York City in August, and I melt like Odo. (Almost forgot; Deep Space Nine "never happened" since the new movie series retconned everything by blowing up Vulcan and killing Spock's mother.)

I lived in MN the first 27 years of my life. Different strokes for different folks. I was a total baby about the weather when I went back over Christmas. And 5 year old cars start rusting out if they haven't been washed consistently from all that damn road salt. The weather in MN is nice like 3 months a year..... May, June, and September, versus 9 down here.

I have enough family in Minnesota, but I live in the Chicago area. I wouldn't say Vegas' weather is nice 9 months out of the year and I am pretty tolerant of the weather. As long as it is somewhere between 0 and 90 I will manage

Summertime in Vegas: Air conditioned home, air conditioned car, air conditioned casinos....no problem for me. I don't even walk from the car to the casino. I get dropped off and picked up at the door. :) The only time I am REALLY outside is when I go swimming in the backyard, usually early morning or late evening. Other than that the only way I know it's summer is when the electric bill comes. :/

LOL! The one thing I don't like about the AC is they make it like 60 inside on a day where it is like 100 outside. It's like you need a new set of clothes for indoors

That's another thing about Vegas. They
keep the casinos cold enough to hang
meat in, so when go out into 112, it
really body slams you. That can't be
good for you, especially if you're older.

That is all I ask. Can you just keep the inside temp so I don't have to lug around a separate set of clothes in a backpack? Heck, coming from 112 and having it be 75 or 80 inside would be a breath of fresh air

I grew up in Florida and now live in Vegas. So I've experienced both. Florida summers were uncomfortable, but I spent most of my time in the summer months surfing in the ocean....not the internet. Lol.

During my 8 years in Phila, in between Florida and Vegas, I thought the summers were pretty mild. A couple hot days each year with some humidity, but nothing I couldn't handle. But those winters...being a Florida boy....I NEVER adjusted to those northern winters. Philly was mild compared to winters in many other places, but that whole bundling up thing, just to go out....forget about it. I'll take a couple hot months in Vegas and 9-10 months of 'nice' weather over those 3-4 months of winter anytime.
