The textures of the Mexican Fan Palm are nothing like the Deciduous tree. The Nikkor 24/200mm lens works pretty well as a macro lens doesn’t it? Our weather is going to heat up next week to around 112 degrees but just 97 degrees for today. There are plenty of people in Las Vegas that really do love this much heat on a daily basis.
It was a busy morning including taking some iPhone photos of the flowers at the grocery store. Today’s weather is sunny, 90 degrees with a stiff wind but over the next few days Las Vegas will heat up to 110 to 112 degrees, the heat warnings are already being broadcast on the NWS transmitters and online. I hope the old AC system in this home will get through another scorching summer. And I’m still waiting on calls or emails for work which sucks…
After buzzing around the city for half of this day hunting for work, I headed home after stopping for a bite to eat. I like this view looking west from atop the bridge over the ninety-five freeway. The foothills look nice under a very bright and sunny sky today with 106 degrees in the forecast. Stay cool out there, people!
I took a short ride around the area this morning and stopped a couple times to inquire about job opportunities. These photos of the Strip aren’t very good but they give you an idea of what it looks like from several miles northwest. There were far fewer people at the park too thanks to the 100+ degree heat today.
Las Vegas Valley has a high heat warning until late Friday night. I’m used to it, it seems that most people here are but it still kicks your bum anyway. Just carry plenty of water with you, and seek shelter from the direct sunshine when possible. If air conditioning systems had never been invented, there would be far less population here. I hope that this summer will not see a sustained high temperature like this for weeks on end like last summer. 🔥🌴🌞🌵
