I am heading to Las Vegas this afternoon. From the picture above, you can see what awaits me. Las Vegas had the biggest snow storm in their area in several decades this week. Flights were canceled coming into and out of McCarran International Airport on Wednesday. It’s a good thing I didn’t decide to leave then. McCarran has no snow removal equipment, which I guess is something they normally wouldn’t need. Flights resumed as of Thursday. Unfortunately, the weather left some of my grad school buddies stranded on their way to Vegas. I know one dude got left in Phoenix for a night and another one actually had to return to Vancouver.
Looking at the ten day forecast, temperatures will flirt with freezing throughout the weekend. I am seriously considering bringing my winter coat with me to Vegas. I’m for sure bringing a scarf. I’ll be back on Tuesday evening. Wish me warmth!
