I just know that even though our thermostat reads 68 at night, it's not "real" 68, because I can constantly feel the heat from the environment pushing back into the house. That is why we can hug in actual 68 degree weather, but no matter what temperature I set the A/C to, our own body heat combined with the ambient heat outside pushing its way in makes it intolerable.

House goes on the market in 7 days so thankfully this will be a distant memory soon.

Sorry, but 68 is 68. If that is your climate control setting, that is the air temperature around your thermostat when it shuts off the AC. Some parts of your house will always be warmer than others (rooms on the upper floor of a multi-story house, rooms with a west-facing wall, etc.). Even so, what you're saying makes zero sense to me, and I live in the same city in what is in all likelihood a similar home.

Such kind people on this forum...

I'm not a scientist (as Scoop so kindly pointed out) but all I know is we were here in December when the thermostat read 68 (with no air conditioning) and we slept just fine. Now when it's 110 outside and the thermostat reads 68 inside, we are incredibly uncomfortable and can barely sleep.

In my opinion it's uncomfortably hot. I've lived here for almost 3 years now and I grew up in southern California. In Temecula where I grew up it was always 90+ with humidity in the summer vs. Las Vegas where it's 105+ with low humidity. 90 with humidity is better to me. One of the main draws of living in Las Vegas is the recreation opportunities such as good trails, and hiking at Red Rock. They are rendered useless from the end of May to September. If you can handle not having outdoor fun for 3 or 4 months then the other 8-9 months are about as good as it gets weather wise.

"uncomfortable" or "unbearable" is a very subjective thing. Some people don't like the cold and others hate the heat.
Personally, I prefer the heat than the cold any day.
But if you are looking for ideal temperature all year round, please move to the coastal side of southern California, or even better Hawaii if you can afford it.

May not be any "souls" on the strip right now but there are definitely a lot of people out and about walking in this heat. Some of them were even smart enough to carry large umbrellas. Good for them.

I'll be there next week. I think of it as a warm welcoming desert hug.

I don't know how you do it. This one is kicking my butt, and I don't work outside. My boyfriiend keeps bottled water on ice for the mailman and the UPS guy right now. they are very grateful.

This summer is one for the record books, already.
