We had SNOW in Las Vegas






Snow in Vegas, UNHEARD OF!!! Now every so often we get flurries but nothing the kids can ever play in but yesterday Dec, 17 2008 we had snow for a couple hours and when it stuck the kids made snowballs and walked around in it. I took lots of pictures and made a comfort food that reminds me of winter...LOL....no not soup, although if I had the stuff for soup I surely would have made it, we had homemade turkey potpie....it was so warm and rich and yummy....so unlike our bone chillin temperatures. Some of my kids were MIA and the ones that were around (my youngest 3) played and tried to catch snowflakes in their mouth. I had wished for snow and I got it. The only downfall is that Ub couldn't go to work and that is scary...that means our only check to Christmas shop with will have one day of work on it....This was such a fun day and one the kids will remember because the schools got closed for the day (today, Thursday Dec, 18th 2008) I know to some it's funny because we get 2 inches of snow but in this town that NEVER gets snow we aren't equipped for it. Las Vegas has 2 snow plows...LOL...and they are up in the mountains. It's been a fun day but very VERY cold. I don't even own a pair of pants...LOL...just Capri's...and I can't remember what a pair of socks feels like on my feet....wait do I own socks??? hmmmm must check that out. I am such a desert rat. Have a happy holidays everyone.

I heard about this on the news this morning. Peple were out taking pictures by the Las Vegas sign. Very exciting for those that don't get it much. Us on the other - 8 to 10 inches coming our way, thank you very much!
