From what I heard, hwy 160 (main drag to Vegas) was closed for awhile and when it reopened, chains were required.

It's now 1:30 pm and all the snow is gone ...all of it, even in the hills. This morning, it was just as if this was Minnesota in January. It was coming down hard at times.

This was quickly taken at about 9:00 am:
Well, even though I absolutely, positively and completely hate that white stuff, I have to admit it looks pretty on the tree branches and rocks in your photo..

I wish it would snow. It actually put a light dusting on the tops of the homes here in Aliante earlier this morning,,then it started raining, and now that stopped and the wind picked back up. There is a chance for a repeat tonight and tomorrow morning again. So I may get my snow wish before the temps heat up to the low 70's for next week.

It has been unusually cold and wet since January. That only happens around here when it is not being unusually hot and dry.

By the weekend it is supposed to be up in the 70's which is normal. Last year we had about 1 inch of rain for the whole 12 months. So far this year we've had about 3 inches. Average is 4 per year. It will soon be dry and we won't see anymore rain until July or August, and that's a definite maybe.

I'll never forget back in the 60's when our weatherman forgot his script and had to ad lib the forecast. Being in the desert he figured it was safe to say "no rain in sight". He couldn't see out from the studio, but it was raining when he said it, and it rained every day for the whole month of April. Go figure.

But once you have been here for awhile, you get use to our cold. I have to say that I really do not wear a jacket that much, only when the wind is really bad. Even today, had to go out for a couple of hours, and did not have a jacket on. To me this is paradise compared to back east. All my family is saying, when is the snow going to go away. They have been hit with some major storms.

Another thing to remember is that cold temps here do not feel as cold as the exact same temps in a humid climate. Dry cold is much more pleasant than damp cold, same as dry heat is much more pleasant than heat with humidity.
