Just a quick note.
I live in Las Vegas (the real Las Vegas, not that cheap knock-off in New Mexico). It has been unseasonably cold the last week or so, and yesterday the higher end of the valley got some snow. This is pretty unusual (it happens maybe every five years or so) and it’s dominated the news.
(You’d think we were just some little hick town or something.)
Low and behold, it finally got down to our level.
|Just getting started …|
At about 3:00 PM it was a slushy mix about a quarter-inch deep down by the club house …
|This poor palm must be mortally offended.|
Unfortunately, most of the locals don’t seem to understand how to drive in this stuff.
What’s worse is that they don’t understand that they don’t understand how to drive in this stuff.
I’m grateful I didn’t have to drive anywhere today.
|Yeah, looking more like Christmas than I ever wanted …|
This was at about 5:00 or so. If it wasn’t for Photoshop this would be a muddy gray blob with some colored dots.
Not only was it dark, but it was cold. Weather 1, Art 0.
|I think this palm has probably had enough of Vegas.|
Likewise, Photoshop saved this one. (I really needed a before and after with this poor palm tree,)
There are those who would blame Global Warming for these freak weather patterns we’re dealing with this fine winter.
I blame Al Gore.
