Temperatures in Las Vegas are over now 100ยฐ and will stay that way for at least the next 5 to 6 months. But the humidity is only about 8%. It's pretty comfortable, but you gotta love the Vegas heat to come here. Have you been to Vegas in the summer?

Vegas is an ecological abomination.

๐Ÿ˜‚well, I agree downtown is pretty nasty. But is it different than any other big city?

Yes I used to attend conferences there and had to wear a full suit in that heat!

Luckily almost all buildings around the convention center are connected with air conditioned spaces.

Yep. Soon it won't get below 100° before the sun comes back up.

The last time my husband and I were in Vegas was during a heat wave. The temp was 120, and it was miserable...I couldn't I've there!

It does get up to 120°. And as long as you stay in the shade, stay wet, and have a fan on you it's not too bad. At least you cool off when you're wet because it's so dry. I remember going swimming in June in Acapulco to cool off. It was so humid that it didn't feel cooler getting out. It felt hotter than 120° in Vegas.

I understand. Is it the heat? Because compared to Pittsburgh it's a dry heat and much more comfortable.

I consider comfortable heat to be an oxymoron. I had heard many times that the dry heat isn't as bad, but I didn't notice much of a difference. It was still miserable.

Ok. I get it. Pittsburgh is pretty miserable in August too. Right?

I've never been there so I voted hate it, but I live in Phoenix and do fine with the heat so... it's better than Alabama heat any day.

110° in Vegas is nice. It's so dry that you'll actually shiver when you get out of the pool.

I'm telling you, if I could, I'd move there! I love the Vegas heat and the desert. We are trying to get back for a second honeymoon.

I love it here. We live on the northwest edge of the city. We have the desert across the street. We ride our horses out there. It's beautiful. And we're only 25 minutes from the strip.

Oh. Sorry. I thought that you love the heat of Vegas in the summer if you came here then. If you don't then you came in winter.

We have similar weather and I enjoy it but not everyone has enough money to travel so I haven't been out of Texas.

I go to McAllen Texas twice a week. It's so humid and at 98° it feels so miserable.
