Toto, I don't think we're in Vegas anymore...

One of the perks of living in Las Vegas, is that we don't have weather. Other than HOT, of course. So, imagine my surprise when I looked out of the window and saw this:













And really, should a backyard pool look like this? Now, before you get too jealous, remember, it's a rental!!!
It's cold here, baby. 30 degrees and falling. And snowing. Of course, the streets are clear because it's usually 1000 degrees here, but I still saw many people skidding off of the roads while I was driving home from work this afternoon. The locals say it's because of all of the oil on the roads since it never rains... yeah, whatever. I think people are distracted by the foreign concept of ANYTHING falling from the skies here, and they are so busy looking at it, they are driving off of the roads.
But, it sure is beautiful, and reminds me of Denver...and Green Bay...two of my very favorite cities. And bonus - no shoveling of driveways, so we are very much enjoying the unseasonably-precipitous weather!

I have been informed that my blog loads very slowly. I think it's a scam because the poster added a link to "check out my computer." If, as my friends, you think it's loading unnecessarily slowly, please let me know!

It is snowing in Searcy too. I received a text from the college student who is supposed to be studying for finals. I hope he doesn't play too much!

I'm jealous--all it did was rain in Henderson today! I wanted some snow so I could blog it! Good pictures by the way!

No problems at all with load time here.

I think the poster was definitely trying to spread a virus - kinda scary!! A reminder to NEVER EVER click on links unless you are positive you know who it came from. I hope this doesn't mean I have to start "moderating" my comments...
