Let Me Cover The Point, and Put Another $2G's on Half-A-Foot ...

Global Warming? ... What Global Warming! ...

Yeah, sure, we always look forward to the beginning of Winter, and seeing the snow storm reports - from Las Vegas!

Road closures extend overnight; county schools cancel classes

A rare winter storm swept through Southern Nevada Wednesday, dumping the most snow on the valley in nearly three decades, grounding flights at the airport, forcing the closure of major highways and closing schools for today.

"This is the most snow we've had in Las Vegas in almost 30 years," said Chris Stachelski, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service. "It's a significant historical event."

Outgoing flights at McCarran International Airport were grounded Wednesday afternoon because of the snowfall and poor visibility. Incoming flights were cancelled, said Ian Gregor, spokesman for the Federal Aviation Administration.

Gregor said the airport doesn't have snow removal or deicing equipment, which means there's no way for snow-covered planes to leave safely.
Hmmm ...

I wonder how many casinos opened up books, and took bets, on what the final snow fall amount would be?

Since it's Vegas, and the Season, and snow is not what we typically put together with Vegas, I think we have the perfect soundtrack to offer, that is, well, so, so Vegas.

Maybe they're already singing this along the Strip ...
