I read that the Furnace Creek visitor center weather station is the hottest place on earth most summer days. Who's visiting?[emoji3062]

One up you on that.  Flew in on a C 130 and landed at an air base in Saudi Arabia during the summer time.  The pilot shut off power and we had to de-plane because it was 125 degrees  in the aircraft.  Our transport had not yet arrived and temps got up to 150 degrees on the tarmac.  It didn't feel like standing in front of the oven with the door open, it felt like turning the oven on broil and putting your head inside.  You're talking about out of the frying pan and into the fire.

131 Today.

They call it Furnace Creek for a good reason.


A guy on the weather channel said this is the first time the 131 will be a100% accurate. The old record is 136 but that was almost 100 years ago. They kind of doubt that reading was 100% accurate. So today may be a new record for real.
