Hot, Hot, Hot
Jill's Journal: With the heat wave sweeping the country right now, I know Las Vegas isn’t the only place suffering in triple-digit temperatures. And the weatherman today said it was “only” 114 degrees, not the 122 we registered. But either way, it’s hot, evidenced by a phenomenon that I don’t recall having anywhere else. To explain…
In an RV, one has to plan ahead to use hot water. Whether it’s showers, laundry, dishes, or simply washing your hands, if you want hot water, you’d have better turned on the hot water heater some time prior.
Not so in Vegas, apparently. It’s so hot here that the water coming out of our tap is always hot, never cool. Our showers have been taken with only the cold spigot turned on and that’s plenty hot. In fact, water coming out of the “cold” tap would be way too warm for a comfortable swim.
