So I know everyone has already posted about the snow day here in Vegas, but I am just now getting my chance to say a comment or two about it. SO most of you probably already heard that it snowed here in Vegas on Wednesday. I really do have to admit that it did snow longer than I have ever seen here in Vegas, and it was pretty cool. It started about 1:30 in the afternoon and just kept going until about 8:00 pm. But we live in the Eastern lower part of the valley so it took about 2 hours of non stop snowing before it actually started to stick. In the end we ended up with about 3 in of snow. The southern part of the valley, like in Henderson, got quite a bit more. My brother works in Henderson and when he got out of work there was about 6 in of snow covering his car. We did not have enough to build a snow man, but Kent and the girls made snow balls and put them in the freezer. I have to thank my husband for that great idea because now I am constantly moving the snow balls out of my way to find the food, and Brianna loves her little snow ball so I don't have the heart to throw it back outside.
So what I have to laugh about is that at 8:00 that night the school district declared thursday a snow day. This was the first snow day in Vegas in about 30 years. It did not make a difference to Aurora becuase she is on track break, but Kent got the day off. Normally that would be cool, but Kent is still technically a substitute until January so that just meant an extra day without a pay check this month which is already shortened due to christmas break. What is funny though is that here there was hardly any snow on the streets and by 8 in the morning there was nothing left but a tiny bit on the grass. What is even more ironic is that when we lived in Utah I never heard it declared a snow day and there was always way more snow then we had. Kent and I just had to laugh about it.
