that s fluckn HOT!
Ha, lived there. It maybe dry and hot but MUCH better than 100 and humid. Been there, too!
a few years back, i drove through death valley on a motorcycle during the day. it got up to around 120 degrees but felt more like 10,000 degrees when i was going 60mph. i just had to see if i could get from one side of the valley to the next. i did and i lived to tell about it - right here and now.
This August, I was driving from California to NJ and my van broke down on the I10, just across the Arizona state line. The tow truck brought me back into California, to a little town called Blythe. At 11 p.m. the temperature was 110! On Sunday afternoon, the temperature hit 123. On the second night, I decided to try to cool off in the motel pool. At 11:30 the water in the pool was a cool 108. It felt like being in a hot tub, but without the bubbles.
Ya but in Arizona its a dry Hate, opps i mean heat
You guys mentioned your experiences, once I drove to Law Vegas from California to see my girlfriend in I think it was Sept 2002(?) and it was 130 in the daytime in Baker, CA, when I passed through Baker, CA at 2:30 a.m. (I drive through the night because it was supposed to be cooler) the giant thermometer read 122 degrees. That was the hottest I have ever been.

When I was a child, my grandparents lived in Death Valley. On our way to visit them one time, we experienced Baker at 130 degrees. That was about 50 years ago. Pretty hot!
The coldest recorded temperature in Antarctica was actually at a research station a few years back when it hit 190 below zero. Also, I've been in Corona, California (near Death Valley) when it hit 129.
The highest non-exaggerating under-the-shade temperature I've ever experienced was 118F in El Centro, CA. That was unbearable. I have no idea what 18 degrees warmer would feel like.
ron1451, I was born in Needles, CA, And lived in the Area for ever, finally moved to Oregon. But I believe the highest under the porch temp I can recall was 120-125f... I can't say that that was purely accurate, but it's that sort of heat you folks from El Centro know about, that when you step outside it's like a punch in the Sternum...At that point say 115 or so It don't matter anymore it's mind numbingly hot!
hi Steve...guess what? I have a home in Needles. lol.
This is the most beautiful and diverse place in the US. We usually go the first week in April for a week or two. The landscape is unlike anything anywhere on earth.
