    When it’s 114 the shade will be nice as a respite. Remember, there’s no lifeguard or waitress. You byob from the room with a giant cup.
     
    Hopefully, finally !!!

    I like using that pool, it is like my own little hideaway. it's usually quiet and not too many people there if any at all. I do not want the sun to be blocked.

    You need to hurry as I think they are building a “block” as we speak. Just go look. No hope until 4:30 or 5:00. In my opinion.

    I haven't been in a Las Vegas pool since the 1990s or so, but one thing I remember about them is that they tended to be COLD! It was as if they cooled them, cuz in the hottest months of summer they were well below the average ambient temperature.

    Yeah, that's a real shock to certain body parts when it's 109 poolside and you jump into 75 degree water.

    Main reason is that in summer, evaporation is high and cold water from tap is constantly being added. My pool at the house selfdom's gets to the perfect 84 degrees even during the hottest summer days. But it only gets 100% sun about 3 hours a day. I often run the heater for a short while to get it up to our comfort level. many casino pools also get shade often from hotel towers around them.

    Is construction still going on at Circa or has that come to a halt, too?
     
    Hoping the World is open by then.
    Nice hotel, crappy TV

    Just checked the cam. The pool deck area is busy as a beehive.

    It seems like different trades work opposite shifts. Steel during the day, concrete at night. Glass was being installed after the steel workers had finished for the day.

    If anyone is local and bored, I'd love to get a current photo of the top of the tower.
