Subject:It snowed today!
Time:05:56 pm
In the valley!  I've lived in Vegas for nearly 20 years and can count on my hands the number of times it's actually snowed down in the valley.  Granted it was mainly over the west side of town and just rained over on my side, but there were big fat white flakes falling over at my dentist's office and I drove the kids home way to the west so they could see the snow on the palm trees.  And turned on the easy listening station that plays Christmas songs all day this time of year and sang along.  Then when I got home I had the funnest SGA Christmas card waiting for me. (Thanks, Annette! That made my day!) and now I'm totally stoked and in the holiday spirit!

I was in Vegas when it began to snow, sevseral years back. Friends and I drove in from California, hit the Holy Cow casino (we didn't have time to do a luxury casino so went to the one with the cow on top, and wow, just like on TV!) ;) then as we left, I said, wow, if I didn' tknow better by looking at the moon, it was gonna snow. It snowed something like 2-4" that night! we just missed it.

God, we used to go to Holy Cow all the time for the microbrews and I haven't been in ages! The first time I saw it snow here we just happened to be staying on the strip for the night (company holiday party with cheap rooms for guests so we took advantage of not having to drive home) and woke up the next morning to snow! Having spent four years in Wisconsin, it wasn't impressive in the least except that it was, of course, *Las Vegas* and any snow is impressive here. Several years ago they had a massive cold spell and all the fountains froze on the strip, but we were back east visiting family and missed it. I just couldn't stop smiling today with these big fluffy flakes falling on me. *G*

LOL! I'm actually curious to see how they handle the city. I always get a kick out of watching old episodes of Vegas and how they'll be driving out at Valley of Fire, take a left turn, and suddenly they're at Caesars!

I don't know enough about the city to go "wrong" but can with other shows. It will be interesting to see how much of Vegas is actually Vancouver. The desert scenes were shot in BC.

Well we definitely had more rain than snow but what little snow we got was much more fun than the rain, that's for damn sure. And the cards just made me giggle happily. *G* I have to scan it and send it to Koschka so she can see it, too.
