115f. 7/28. That was the hottest temp. I saw in Henderson on my thermometer. That temp. was at 4:00 pm in the shade That will kick your ass. Go mow the lawn during that temp. and see what happens.

So, here's how this happened: This summer was more humid than most summers in LV. Humidity kept the high temps down, but caused the night temps to stay way above normal. So because the night temps stayed at over 90f+, the July average temp. record was broken. Higher night temps means your AC is running more = higher electricity bill than the past summer. Of course you can always shut off your AC and sweat in your bed!
I guess the moral to the story is this: A dry heat is your best friend. Humidity is not nice, especially in LV!
