Spring means WIND in Las Vegas

Traveling across town to pick up my daughter and took the first pic at a stop light. The second was about 5 minutes later a few miles west. This is not a cloudy day, this is a dust storm. Not unusual in the great basin of the U.S. Very typical for April when we have had very little rain since January.

For those not familiar with Las Vegas, Nevada, the tower in these pictures is the Stratosphere Hotel and Casino. It has several carnival-type rides at the top that are meant for thrill-seekers and an excellent, rotating restaurant much like the Space Needle in Seattle. But much taller. Our airport had issues with the height during construction do to flight paths.

Glad we are sunny and calm for a few days.
