It cooled off at Death Valley on Monday
The high only got to 127, according to the National Weather Service, down from the 130-degree temp on Sunday that made headlines, but it’s not a record for the planet. Death Valley once hit 134 degrees in 1913.
The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports it “reached 117 at 10 a.m. at the visitors center at Furnace Creek in Death Valley National Park — 6 degrees warmer than the 10 a.m. Sunday reading of 111, according to the National Weather Service.”
Sounds like we’re headed for fall in Death Valley. Football weather on the way.
In sports news, zero negative news from Mike Florio over on PFT this morning. And hold onto your seats…the top headline this morning over there IS POSITIVE!!! The NFL’s COVID reserve list is down to 12 players. And guys are now in pads. We are so close I can taste pigskin on the patio September 10. Patio beers. Collinsworth rambling on. Cannot wait!
It gets even better: the Chiefs are planning to have 16,700 fans in the stands. Will it be perfect? No, but it’s progress. Let’s stay positive.
Numbers from :
What 25 year old makes 100k? Donates 615 a month and spends 250 going out and 400 on groceries. Cell phone 40? Internet 20? Where is this mythical scenario?Ha! https://t.co/rS3zH44OqQ
