Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow ... In Sun City?
Mother Nature put on a winter show in Sun City Summerlin last week when she opened up her makeup kit and let up to 3 inches of fluffy white powder spill from her compact case. According to the National Weather Service, the most snow of last week’s winter storm descended on Wednesday evening and continued into Thursday morning. By 8 a.m. on Thursday, February 21, Sun City resident Edward Arbuckle snapped a picture of snow falling on the Desert Vista Community Center that conjured up images of an Aspen, Colo., ski lodge. Local weather reports confirmed snow falling on the Las Vegas Strip, with some of the white stuff sticking long enough for tourists to snap some pretty cool pictures of the Welcome to Las Vegas sign. As for the last time it snowed in the valley? The National Weather Service confirmed that a little over 3 ½ inches fell on December 17, 2008.
