Welcome to Snow Vegas
December 17, 2008 -- First measurable snow on the Las Vegas strip in about 30 years. 3" at the airport (official recording site which is just across the street from this famous sign). This is a very rare sight.
Note the partial snow man near base of sign, his head had fallen off by the time I got there, and there was a power failure to the sign and nearby street lights. As you can see, many people had been there before me.
I found a picture of me taking this picture on the RJ website... Image #6 in the slideshow: www.reviewjournal.com/media/slideshow/snowday_1217/
I'm in the red/grey/black jacket
