only in las vegas will you see and hear so much excitement about the recent rainfall. it has been raining all week and we [las vegas locals] are overjoyed. we are used to bright blue skies and intense sunlight nearly every day--thus, a change is always welcome. i was looking through the photos on my hard drive and could not find a single photo taken in the rain (understandably since it rarely rains here). while i was in sweden a couple years ago, i came upon this sculpture and really liked it. look how green it is in sweden. i'll take some of their rain any day!
