Dreaming of a white Christmas . . . in Vegas?
So, I live in Vegas. Every winter, we get a snow flurry or two in the middle of the night in some of the cooler areas, like Summerlin. But it never sticks enough to actually see in the morning. We get snow at Mt. Charleston, but it is bad snow. It doesn't pack at all. No snowballs, no snowmen.
We got our Christmas tree on Tuesday and made plans to decorate it and bake cookies (a pot luck at work and cookie exchange at the kidlets school) on Wednesday. Sounds kinda like a hallmark card, but without the snow 'cause we live in Vegas.
Well, it snowed. It snowed a lot. Ok, about 4 inches, which isn't a lot to those of you who live in places where it snows, but it is a lot here. And it was good packing snow. We had snowballs and snowmen. And we had family over, including my niece and her bf visiting from Reno. And we decorated the tree, made cookies, and watched the new Muppet Christmas special.
It was an amazing night. I asked around and it has not snowed like that here in 30 years. That is as long as I've been alive. School was even canceled today because this place is so not ready for snow and the roads wouldn't be safe. Anyway, I got a white Christmas in Vegas. Sure, it wasn't Christmas yet, but pretty close. I'll take it
