... Record rainfall in Las Vegas today...
Here in the desert city of Las Vegas... .record rainfall occurred
this afternoon. 0.10 of an inch of rain was measured at McCarran
International Airport... easily breaking the previous record of a
trace last set in 1992.
I can tell you this much....we didnt get a single drop out here at my cousins house...NOT ONE DROP! And, of course, there's the realization that breaking a record of a trace in 1992 basically means that it hasnt rained on June 24th since 1992. WOW! I still lived here then...I was 12!
