Okay, so you’ve decided to finally do that thing that you would always talk about, you know, renting a moving van and moving to Las Vegas! Well, congratulations! But as any Las Vegas local will tell you, it gets hot here during the summer. Don’t worry it’s a dry heat. Las Vegas summers are notoriously hot so it’s important to make sure that you’re prepared for it. So here are a few tips for surviving summer in Las Vegas from Champion Movers, your trusted Las Vegas moving company.
Be Aware That the Ground Gets Hot
If you recently moved to Las Vegas, the chances are that you’re used to living somewhere where you and your pets can take leisurely strolls around the neighborhood in the middle of the day, or where you can run out to your mailbox barefoot because you’ll only be out there for a second. But when you move to Las Vegas it’s important to never go barefoot, and that applies to your pets as well!
Keep a Towel on You at All Times
As we mentioned in the point above, surfaces in Las Vegas can exceed temperatures of 100 degrees! Because of that, it’s a good idea to keep a towel with you everywhere you go. Keep one in your car and keep another in your handbag, because you never know when you’ll need to but a towel between your skin and a burning hot surface! It may seem silly, but sitting on a towel when you get into your car will beat sitting on hot leather seats any day.
Keep a Windshield Cover in Your Car
Las Vegas is different from a lot of cities in the sense that there is a lot of free parking everywhere you go. Unfortunately, most of that parking is not covered parking so it’s important to find ways to keep your car shaded in the summer. We recommend keeping a windshield cover in your car so that you can at least keep some of those rays out of your car.
Don’t Forget Sunscreen and a Hat
When you make the decision to move to Las Vegas, you quickly find out that the sun shines hard all day. It’s important to protect your skin from the sun’s harmful UV rays. It’s really easy to get sunburns in Las Vegas if you are out walking the Las Vegas Strip, exploiting Red Rock, or even just unloading your moving truck into your new home.
Keep sunscreen, a hat, and maybe even a parasol umbrella on you because you never know when you’ll need to protect your skin.
