Imagine going on a Sunday craps bender and then this happens
It was 57 degrees and partly cloudy on Sunday afternoon, typical weather for the Las Vegas Valley in February.
But by nighttime, the temperature dropped into the high 20s. The National Weather Service issued a winter weather advisory for the area. As early as 8 p.m., it started to snow in some parts of the valley and continued until about 2 a.m. Monday morning.
The northwest and southwest valley, specifically Summerlin, Mountain’s Edge and Southern Highlands, saw the most snow, with one-and-a-half inches reported in West Summerlin, said meteorologist Chris Outler from the National Weather Service. By 11:30 p.m. Sunday, measurable snow reached McCarran International Airport for the first time in over a decade, and flurries were spotted on the Strip and downtown as well.
It had not snowed in the Vegas city limits since 2008! Just think about walking out of your favorite craps watering hole in Vegas and it’s snowing on your head. Absolutely fascinating. Enhanced buzz. Think you’re tripping. Gambling buzz and snow. Sounds like an amazing early morning in Vegas. Ever been to Vegas this time of year? You know how quiet it is at 2 a.m. in town. The junkies must’ve thought it was the weirdest trip they’ve ever been on.
