Happy Day!

This was our weather forecast warning for today:
EXTREMELY RARE SNOW EVENT ACROSS THE DESERT SOUTHWEST...
AN UNUSUAL COMBINATION OF SUBTROPICAL MOISTURE AND COLD...
NORTHERLY... LOW LEVEL AIR HAS PRODUCED A RARE SNOWSTORM ACROSS THE LOWER ELEVATIONS OF THE MOHAVE DESERT... INCLUDING THE LAS VEGAS VALLEY. THIS SNOWSTORM WILL PRODUCE SIGNIFICANT IMPACTS TO THE LAS VEGAS VALLEY AS 3 TO 6 INCHES OF SNOW ARE LIKELY AT MOST LOCATIONS INCLUDING THE LAS VEGAS STRIP. HIGHER AMOUNTS ARE POSSIBLE...
PARTICULARLY ACROSS THE WESTERN PORTIONS OF THE VALLEY WHERE TOTAL ACCUMULATIONS OF UP TO 10 INCHES ARE FORECAST.

THE SNOW BEGAN TO FALL ACROSS MUCH OF THE LAS VEGAS VALLEY EARLY WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON AND WILL CONTINUE THROUGHOUT THE OVERNIGHT HOURS. THIS WILL LIKELY BE THE BIGGEST SNOWSTORM TO IMPACT LAS VEGAS SINCE 1979... WHEN 7.8 INCHES OF SNOW WAS MEASURED AT MCCARRAN INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT.


Maybe not big news to some...but for our boys and us it was great news!!! So we decided to take advantage of this crazy weather and play in the snow!
