it snowed where?

Yesterday here in Las Vegas, we had snowfall in the area anywhere from 1″ to 8″+.  Being from the east coast originally, I knew what to expect with the roads and such.  This is a picture outside my house last night, probably around 7:30 or so.  I made sure to get the palm tree on the left hadn side in the picture.  A palm tree covered in snow just doesn’s seem right at all does it?  Clark County School District cancelled classes for Thursday around 8:30 the night before.  Did you read that right?  I said The Night Before!  This would not be the case in Northeast Ohio, that is for sure.  In Ohio, you go to bed swearing about the Superintendent or Dean of your school system because he is heartless and wants everyone to suffer.  When you wake, you praise him for having mercy and letting you have a day off.  Although that only lasts about 5-10 minutes, then it is back to hating him for making you do your homework the night before because you thought you had class.  You get 6 inches of snow there and its like “OK, put on an extra layer and get to work”.  The luxury of being in a climate with limited inclimate weather is that when it happens, it is a huge deal and not as much a pain in the ass as it would be back in Ohio.  It was a little funny to hear reactions of people from Ohio that laughed out loud when I told them the whole city was shutting down because of 6 inches of snow.  But you have to think, what was the city, with a population of 2 million plus,  going to do with only 14 snow trucks?
