    I was there once when it hit 118. Screw that!! It was like getting hit in the face when you get out of you air conditioned car.

    96 degrees today with 103 heat index. But a nice breeze. Last summer saw 114 on binions rotating thermometer but it hardly seemed 110.
     
    At last, and finally it's close.

    The heat is what I go for. 110 is perfect!

    I remember years ago walking out of Harrahs Laughlin to the parking garage at 2am. The temperature at my truck, on a lower level, was 102°F.

    That's too hot.

    I've seen 118 and the annoying thing was the wind. If the temperature is higher than your skin temp the wind feels like someone chasing you around with a blow dryer. No wind, no problem. I've been more annoyed by the casino blast furnace when the outside temp hits 50.

    Coming from Austin, the heat doesn't bug me as much. We get months of 100+ days with about 60%-80% humidity. So, when it hits 100+ in Vegas, it doesn't feel AS bad. But, I would rather stay inside for most of it. That's why I try to avoid going to Vegas from about Aug-Sept. I want to enjoy myself... not feel like I'm melting at 1am

    I went for 7/7/07 and it was 117 one day. I didn't think I liked heat, about the end of July here I sometimes look forward to fall & winter, but as others have said, without the humidity it's fine.

    Do your strip walking in the morning, can't walk barefoot on the cement and sitting by the pool is like being in an oven, I only lasted 1/2 hour, but the nighttime is great! I've always wanted to go back in July or August to get out of the humidity here.

    I recall once when the time and temp on a sign outside of a bank were the same: 121

    I'm ok w/August temps - it's been 115 or so the hottest time we were there. Escaping the East Coast humidity is just fine by me.

    It's too hot when you have to jump off The Duece +
    sprint into Westward Ho for a beer !!!!!!
    The Duece was a Sweat/Stink box and The Ho was
    cool with cold beer.
    It was over 110 degrees.
    I stayed for at least 3 beers.
    <
    I remember getting out of The Plaza roof pool and shivering
    in the breeze ---- Binion's tower clock read 102
    I never knew one could be wet + cold in 102 degrees ?

    Yup, too hot for me. That's why I don't go to vegas between Memorial Day and Labor day. Of course if I got comped nights and cheap flights I may reconsider but that has never happened in recent times.

    I went in late August, got burned when I sat in my car but didn't check on how hot the seats were. I had to get out and buy something to cool off my burns. After that I stayed away from Vegas during the summer. Just too hot for me. I'm the type to go all over so it is just too hot for me.

    I was in Vegas then. I was there for 5 days and the temps were: 114, 114, 119, 119, 114. I had picked up a package of doughnuts at Smith's and put them in the trunk with some other goodies I bought to have in the room. By the time I got to the hotel, the doughnuts had congealed into one slimy gross mass. I still tell people of the time I was in LV and it was so hot my doughnuts melted.

    It's been up to 112 this week. Great for us scots who get "taps aff" ( no shirt for those who don't speak Glasgow) when it's 65 degrees.
    But when you have to leave the WSOP poker room to heat up it can seem a bit unreal.

    We spent years living where it topped 100 for weeks on end, and would still go down to the Coachella Valley where it really got hot. Sometimes it can't be avoided. What can be avoided is discretionary travel at such times, if one so chooses. Long gone are the days when we'd book the annual guys' golf trip in some desert in summer so we could take advantage of the immensely discounted prices. Life's too short, it's only money ... no thanks. It's the same reason why we long ago quit sharing rooms on trips.

    Now nearly six years in an area where 80 is blistering, I've lost my heat tolerance, at least mentally. I'm going to Vegas in August, and yes, I'll tee it up a few times, but I'd not be going if not attending a work function. Again, there is nothing compelling that can't wait a few months, otherwise.

    As for the question, heat reaction is a personal thing. It's like food or what we choose to play in the casino or shopping or shows or what not.

    I would think your kilts would keep things airy.

    The Deuce would not work for that.

    You would need Dr. Brown's DeLorean! :)
