Dealing with the Vegas simmer, I mean summer

I had a laugh about two weeks ago, while enduring the usual Nevada “living in an oven” summer weather.

Here in Vegas, the local paper is the Las Vegas Review Journal. We call it “the RJ”.

The RJ had published a picture in their paper depicting people running happily through the Salmon Street Springs fountain at Portland’s Waterfront Park (Been there, done that.)

The pic had a headline that said something like: “Where 80 degrees is considered a heat wave.”

Back in Portland I used to complain when it hit 90 degrees.

In mid-summer here in Nevada, that’s considered a cold snap. ;)

I snickered at the Portland pic in the Las Vegas newspaper. I moved to Nevada to get a new perspective, and there was another one, right there.
