Snow in Las Vegas! Strip gets first white stuff in decade


Snow is a thing of the past.” 

LAS VEGAS – A winter storm brought rare snowfall to the Las Vegas Strip, dusting casino marquees and prompting revelers to erect a snowman near the famous “Welcome to Las Vegas” sign.

A half-inch of the white stuff began falling late Wednesday, marking the first significant snowfall at McCarran International Airport in a decade, the National Weather Service said.

Some suburban foothill areas were pillowy white after getting several inches of snow.
