Freaking snowing in Las Vegas today...that is all.

Never snowed here in the fifteen years I've lived here until this year...three times this winter.

6. Yeah, the west side of town used to flood regularly when I first moved here

until they finished the flood control project out there about ten years ago. I'm pretty sure nothing but wild burros lived way out there back in '66.

7. You live in Las Vegas?

There must be some place around there with a roulette wheel. I need you to run in there and put a bet on Black 11... Just a hunch

13. Truthfully, I don't

I've thought about spending time betting on baseball, something I know pretty well, but it's that damned Southern Baptist upbringing...

8. I just landed in Vegas and it's pretty chilly

But as a Canadian, I'm still walking around in capris, light hoodie and slip-on shoes. It's so adorable to see the people who aren't used to it in parkas, hats & boots. Vegas sure isn't used to this. This is still one of the greatest cities in the whole world !

15. I'm stuck here cause of the damn snow...

On flight yesterday that was supposed to change planes in Vegas, departing Vegas 9pm - started snowing and flights were canceled. Spent the night waiting for HOURS in the airport trying to rebook, finally just got a refund and booked a flight on my phone for 9am this morning, and 20 mins later IT got canceled. Thereís not a seat to be had until tomorrow morning. Spit a little snow that didnít even stick and they lost they fuggin minds.

17. Ten years ago we

 

had close to ten inches from the Vegas Valley to Southern Utah. Talk about a Comedy with the Vegas Drivers. NDOT had to close I-15 because of the wrecks and slide offs.

and points northeast toward St. George.

Not at all unusual.

22. I lived in Sumerlin. We had snow in our neighborhood. More than enough

for the kids to make snowmen.

I also well remember the snow falling near The Strip as I nearly got run off the highway by a driver who thought that snow meant it was time to find an imaginary lane and to drive faster.

23. It snowed many times in the 24 years I lived in Las Vegas

 

Once on Super Bowl Sunday. That might have been 1985, the first year I lived there during the Super Bowl.

Then in maybe 2004 or 2005 I remember snow on palm trees at my complex. That was probably the biggest snowfall. Everyone was walking around taking pictures and throwing snowballs.

Of course, I'd go up to the top of Mt. Charleston at least once or twice per year and traipse around in the snow.
