As you may imagine, those of us who live in a desert are familiar with high temperatures. We willingly sacrifice four months out of the year, putting up with blistering heat upwards of 120 degrees, in order to receive mild winters and over 300 days of sunshine.
My verdict? It's totally worth it.
Since us Las Vegans are seasoned pros at dealing with hot temps, the Bear wanted to offer some advice. This is his second summer, after all, as a desert Bear. And he has some good tips for those of you in the 'Dome of Heat.'
First, have a playdate. Invite your friends, turn on the sprinkler, and fill the kiddie pool. Nothing is more refreshing than cool water.
This is also an excellent way to dupe the Water Authority and get extra water for your lawn. Here in Vegas, we'll do anything for more water.
Secondly, frozen yogurt isn't just dessert; when it's this hot outside, it's dinner, too. Choose your flavors - and toppings - wisely.
