Las Vegas, known for it’s year round sunshine, is in the throes of a deep freeze and warming stations have opened up across the valley to help people deal with the cold.
It’s a very common occurrence in the triple degree heat during the summer months in Las Vegas for cooling stations to open. The designated locations offer a reprieve from the heat in air conditioned surroundings to those that work outdoors, are homeless, or simply trying to save money on very high utility bills.
Warning stations are not as common but they are needed this week since overnight temperatures have been below freezing.
