Our Beautiful World 118 ~ Weather

This week at




The word chosen by Ros is

Weather

The reason we moved to Las Vegas is mostly because of the weather. It is always sunny here, 9 months  of nice weather and 3 months of hot weather in the summer. Our winter is mostly in the 50s, that is pretty nice and we do not have snow, however, I can see snowcap looking out of my window in February...



no winter boots and winter jacket needed in Las Vegas.

the place is so wide open and we could see miles away when it rains


it was totally dry where I am taking this photo


it hardly ever rain though, we are in the desert!

our fountain did freeze up over night in January, but that was only overnight, it all melted when the sun came out the next morning


so..... this is our weather here in Las Vegas, how about your part of the world?

Your weather in the distance is lovely to look at, Kirsty, and lucky that you are that far away! I really love the changing of the seasons, although I do complain about the heat! Love your photos! Happy Monday!

The desert really does have such an unique micro-climate. It's really fun to see what it's like in your part of the world. When I lived in CA, the weather was almost always nice and mild.... never got very cold, and not much rain. Such a contrast to the four true seasons we get here in NC. :)

great hptos Kirsty! Although I am a bit jealous about the view and sunny weather I must confess that I love living in the Netherlands. We are blessed to enjoy all the four seasons each year. And that's what I love about our weather. Every season has its charm.

No winter coats??? Lucky you! Here in October we already need one, lol! We have lots and lots of rain (good for the plants though). Beautiful to see the snow on the mountain top so close to your home.

Watching the rain coming is both scary and beautiful. Great capture.
