Heavy Snowfall in Las Vegas – Video

The media tried to tell us it was just it a “dusting.” This video, posted on 21 Feb 2019,  shows otherwise

Thanks to Dan Hammer for this video

  1. For the people in Los Vegas, that’s not a light dusting… To someone in NY, it would be light. Prospective. I’d love to know when it snowed there last….

  2. So, it’s snowing in Las Vegas where the average February temperature is supposed to be 17C, while here in Southern England the temperature this afternoon was 17C but the average February temperature is supposed to be 8C.

    Who’s fiddling with the weather?

      • —yup, heard that before. Well, the temperature has gone up to 20C in our garden this afternoon. Just hope it doesn’t snow in June in retaliation.

  3. A winter storm, in Las Vegas, dumped 7.4 inches of snow on the valley floor on January 31, 1979. I remember all the cars in the ditch going up Boulder Highway. Looked like Craig Road Speedway on a Friday night.

  4. Well now. That’s more than just a “dusting” in Vegas . Then there’s snow in Mailbu CA of all places. Then “Recent Snow Makes Drive to Big Bear Resorts Difficult; Snow Valley Completely Cut Off”.

    Being a former Los Angelino, listening to the LA talk radio they were saying this week that all roads to Big Bear were closed except for residents and emergencies. You couldn’t even get in driving North East then heading South West up the back side of the mountain range [an alternative used by locals].

    Looks like AGW is in full swing… Maybe not ?

  5. Meanwhile at the southern hemisphere:
    Cold snap causing temperatures to plummet across New Zealand
    Feb 24 2019 Rain, winds, king tides and even a bit of snow are in the forecast. It might be time to break out a couple of the winter woollies from storage, as temperatures look set to plummet across the country in the week ahead.
    Metservice meteorologist Rob Kerr said some colder-than-average temperatures could to be expected until Thursday.
    For the North Island, Taumarunui and Palmerston North would be among the coldest, dropping below 10 degrees Celsius overnight, which was “pretty cool for this time of year”.
    In the South Island, Timaru was expected to drop to a brisk 6C and parts of Central Otago such as Alexandra and Queenstown could drop to 3C, which could result in a light frost, depending on wind.

  6. one very happy chappy on that clip
    sort of like in Aus when we get rare snows in the nosnow spots;-)
    bet their deserts bloom madly in the next few weeks
    Birdsville in Aus is getting flooded as the waters travel downriver
    so our tourism for wildflowers in that area will go nuts too

  7. Photos: Pakistani female polio workers battle heavy snow during campaign. February 24, 2019
    The brave women have been hailed by Pakistanis all over, including the UNICEF chief.
    Pakistan is one of the very few nations left that is yet to completely eradicate polio, with millions being pumped into the immunisation campaign – and lately the unsung heroes of the campaign have gained international acclaim for their determination and dedication.
    Earlier this year, Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan lauded the efforts of workers who trudged through waist-deep snow to administer police vaccinations to children.
    Khan met the workers who were video-graphed bracing harsh weather and trekking vaccines to help eradicate the crippling disease.
    Now, pictures of female polio workers – trudging through waist-deep snow – have gone viral on social media after UNICEF Pakistan tweeted them over the weekend.
    First tweeted by ‘Pak Fights Polio’, the pictures show a lady polio worker performing her duty during heavy snowfall in the remote area of Astore, Gilgit-Baltistan to protect children from the virus.

  8. The story here is that I had to come to Ice Age Now to hear about this. This is a “Man bites dog” type of story that is usually leaped upon by the media. So why do coverage? I’m in LA.
