I looked online but all the boots seem winter/snow related. They seem interesting.

My swimming pool provides some relief but it is bathtub warm.



My pool was 91 degrees on Monday. I didn't even bother looking yesterday because I knew it would even be hotter.

I wonder how popular and effective a swimming pool cooler / chiller would be in these conditions and in Las Vegas overall?

Googled it up: Glacier makes them and they seem to be well thought of.

"They say it was so hot downtown this afternoon grown men on the street corner were going up to cops - begging the cops to shoot them."

Reminds me of an old Leno joke back when there was a heat wave on the east coast:

"It was so hot in NYC today that mob informants were throwing themselves into the East River!"
"Dealer has 'rock'... Pay 'paper!'"

This is bad, but not nearly as steamy as a NYC heatwave. Go four or five days with 95 plus and severe humidity and people start to crack. A sideways glance turns into an insult. People mug folks in front of cops just to go to an air conditioned cell. Kids steal cars just to ride around in the ac. Birds get stuck in the tar on rooftops.

Father-and-son hikers have been found dead in Carlsbad Caverns National Park in New Mexico, where temperatures have topped 100 degrees during the extraordinary heat wave gripping the western United States

The body of Robert Stuart Pluta, 57, of Corpus Christi, Texas, was discovered Monday night, and the body of his son Bobby, 21, was found Tuesday morning, New Mexico State Police said.

The Plutas, both of whom were experienced hikers, had been on a hiking trip since Wednesday of last week but hadn't been heard from since they checked into their hotel, NBC station KRIS of Corpus Christi reported. A parkwide search was launched on Monday



If you're experienced would you be hiking around in this heat?

I'll be in Vegas 4th of July weekend.

I picked my hotel based on who has the best pool since I figured it's gonna be hot as hell.

Just got in my car (was outside in a parking lot). Temperature read 117 degrees. Granted it's not that hot. IIRC temperature has to be recorded in the shade for it to "count" or something stupid.

But it doesn't feel super hot outside. I'm not gonna go running in no triathalons or nothing crazy like that, but walking to/from car/casino, it's not bad at all. I like it.

Yes, its actually a good time to hike. All the wannabes are off the trail. Hike early mornings and pre-dusk and hole up in the daytime. Something obviously went very wrong.
