How to Tell It’s Winter in Las Vegas

When temperatures hit bone-chilling winter lows in Las Vegas, it’s easy to tell.

Here’s a photo taken during our blizzard conditions expected to continue through mid-January .

Desperate times call for desperate measures.

The cold snap has seen temps dip below 70-degrees in some parts of Las Vegas, but it feels even colder if you figure in the wind chill factor.

    I’m surprised you were able to take a picture in those chilly conditions, you must have been shaking!

    Or was that due to the delirium tremens?

    • Yes?

      How do you know it’s not Scott in the picture? A man has to stay warm somehow.

        How do we know it’s not you? Everybody has their secrets…

          That getup doesn’t even qualify as a fashion risk in my book, let alone a secret. You’ve lived a sheltered life.

            Sheltered? No way. I have over a dozen eight track tapes for the Vega. Anyone with that amount of available music cannot be accused of being sheltered, isolated or being disconnected with reality, as my Doctor sometimes mentions.

    It can get cold rocking out to Spandex Nation late at night, this time of year.

  • Ha!


    It’s been a few years but I remember being in Vegas when there was actually snow on the ground.

      I remember one Valentine’s Day when the fountains at the old Frontier hotel froze almost solid. Another time we were headed to Vegas and got just North of Kingman, AZ only to hear on the radio that both highways 93 and 95 were closed–either showed in or with wrecks due to the snow. McCarran airport was closed too. We ended up in Laughlin and never got to Vegas that trip.

    Our outbound flight got cancelled because of snow one December and we were “stuck” in Las Vegas for 2 nights before we could get a return flight home.

      I wouldn’t even bother trying to sell a story like that to my boss.

      “You won’t believe why I’m two days late returning to work!”

    A girls gotta stay warm!
