There

has not been a significant snowfall here since 2003. On Monday, western portions of Clark County received 4" of snow. My Charleston got over 1' of snow. This is the forcast for Wed:

THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE IN LAS VEGAS HAS ISSUED A WINTERWEATHER ADVISORY FOR SNOW AT ELEVATIONS ABOVE 3000 FEET FOR CLARKCOUNTY...WHICH IS IN EFFECT FROM 4 AM TO 10 PM PST WEDNESDAY. THISREPLACES THE WINTER STORM WATCH PREVIOUSLY IN EFFECT.SIGNIFICANT SNOWFALL IS EXPECTED AGAIN OVER CLARK COUNTY AT ELEVATIONSAROUND 3000 FEET...INCLUDING THE LAS VEGAS VALLEY. ACCUMULATIONSOF 3 TO 5 INCHES WILL BE POSSIBLE BETWEEN 3000 AND 4000 FEET FORTHE ENTIRE ADVISORY AREA. SOME OF THE LOWER DESERTS DOWN TO 2500FEET...COULD ALSO SEE ACCUMULATIONS OF 1 TO 3 INCHES.

Our house, unfortunately, is less than 3,000' in elevation, so we will likely not get snow. We are about 2000'-2030' in elevation, but you never know.
The mountains to the west(Spring Mountain) and the north are absolutely stunning in thier white covering. I'll be taking my camera tommorrow in hopes of capturing some of them. If the snow persists into the weekend I will be heading to a snow covered Red Rock canyon in the early A.M. on Saturday. The newspaper carried stories of children born here in the last 5 years that have never seen snow before. Its pretty cool. I guess I like snow when I know it won't be around for long!

Working in it didn't even suck. It was snowing like crazy when I went to the west side of the valley, yet it was still about 45F out. Not bad at all. Combined with the near 360 point climb in the DOW, its hard to aks for much more....lol
