For those of you who think of Las Vegas as fun in the sun, let’s talk winter. Las Vegas is surrounded by mountains. This morning all of those mountains were dressed in a bright, fresh coat of white. They were yesterday, too. When I went out to get in the car, I had to clean snow from my windshield.
In the summer, when the temperature hits the hundred and teens, nary a wind blows. In the winter when the mountains are dressed in ice, the wind sweeps over them and down into the valley like a sharp-edged knife.
Come to Vegas in the Winter time. Glance out the window. The sun will be shining brightly. It will look like a glorious day, but step outside and that 30* wind will cut a path right through you.
