    That 45° ties the all-time record reported in 1958 by the nearest major weather station (484000) to my home. But how many consecutive days of 40°+ heat were there in Nevada?

    As reported by that Weather Station, April-May 2016 had 32 days of 42°+ heat. From April 3, 2016 to April 29, every day's high was 40°+, fifteen of these days were 43°+. April 30 and May 1 were below 40°, but May 2 through May 13 were all 40°+. This 2016 heat-wave set records all over S.E. Asia. Heaven helped the many millions of people without air-conditioning.

    I've never understood why anyone would want to live in an area where you go outsides into nature without dying of heat exhaustion. Everything is fine in my life as long as I can ski in the winter and spring; hike, fish and kayak in the summer and fall. I'd never live in south!

    Likewise. I demand a winter to kill the bugs! And a summer (spring and fall?) I don't have to hide from.

    Going for a record-breaking 116 today. However, it's a very dry heat, 5% humidity.

    I'm not into skiing or fishing. Never tried kayaking. I can hike anytime other than during heat waves like this--the mountain trailheads are roughly 20 below the city and the high areas are 30 below the city.

    I reckon in that kind of weather, you might want to keep your hat on.

    Bilby lives in a part of Australia that is usually on fire in summer. 45 is borderline Arctic in comparison.
