The Summer of 2013 is going down in history as “Toasty”. Records are being broken all over the Southwest. The forecast for Death Valley this weekend is 130 in the shade. FOUR degrees short of the all time high. Phoeniz Arizona might hit 120. Two degrees off the record. Las Vegas will top out at 117. This heat wave is expected to last through the weekend when it will cool down to what we call “Sweater Weather”. You folks might call it 90 degrees.
When I worked at MaCarren airport here is in Vegas we played “The Jetway Game”. Waiting for the passengers to come off the plane we kept score.
One Point- For anyone saying “It’s HOT!”
Two Points: For anyone saying, “But it’s a DRY heat.”
Three Points: For anyone asking you how you can work in the weather.
For the three pointer I’d usually reply. “I don’t know. If it gets any colder I’m putting on a sweater.”
