Congrats on surviving the hottest July in the history of Palm Springs

Did July seem especially hot? Well, that’s because it was. In fact, it was the hottest July ever in Palm Springs – well, at least since they started recording these things. 

As the National Weather Service points out, Palm Springs had an average temperature throughout the month (not to be confused with average high temperature) of 97.4 degrees, besting the previous hottest July of 97.2 degrees in 2006.

Congrats on surviving the heat, Palm Springs full-timers!

Though it does suck that all you have to show for it are a high electric bill, sweat stains on your shirts, and a possible case of severe dehydration.
