Crazy Weather

I haven't been in the writing mood lately, the holidays have me preoccupied with presents and parties, friends and family, and an abundance of goodies to eat.

Hopefully I have more to talk about next year. Right now, all I have to chat about is the utter craziness of the recent Las Vegas weather. I've lived here 13 years, and each year I hope and pray for some snow. It's the one thing I always feel is missing around the holidays. No I have never actually lived somewhere where it snows, but still, I have this "missing" feeling when it is cold and I don't see it. Well, this year I got a taste of my wish. A freak snow storm hit the Las Vegas Valley dumping anywhere from 6-10 inches.

Normally we wouldn't see any snow in the valley, maybe a dusting on the surrounding mountains, but certainly nothing we could really play in. This storm hit us by surprise and dropped it's beautiful white flakes for almost 12 straight hours. It was wonderful.

I'm hoping and praying that we might see more of the fluffy cold stuff at least once more this year. Maybe for christmas? Am I asking too much?
