“We hardly ever get snow in Las Vegas and when it snows in the surrounding mountains it dusts the tops of mountains under 7,000'. But this year already we have had two storms pass through. Here are a couple of photos people will recognize if they have ever been to Las Vegas and visited Red Rock Canyon.”

- Brenton William Cooper

The snow is a good omen for the 2009 spring wildflower season. DesertUSA is excited and will keep you up-to-date on the latest developments in wildflower reports.

December 18th - Coachella Valley - “It rained all day Monday and all day yesterday and no one who has lived here has ever seen it rain this hard and this much except for maybe 2 or 3 times in 25 years +. Crazy weather here !” --Lynn Bremner
