Heh, I can recall one NAB show week in April, oh 28 years ago I think. We
drove into Vegas, got to our motel & found they had only heat pumps for heat.
Temps were in the 20's, and they were gonna have to figure out what to do
with about a foot of snow come morning. It had the Vegas street dept. plumb
bumfuzzled & it took what little snow equipment they had about 3 days to
collect it well enough so the locals could drive again. Me, driving Cecil's
old caddy, I had a ball cuz I learned to drive in that stuff & lots worse the
winter of 1950 in Iowa. We almost froze though, and you couldn't buy a
blanket at any dept store in town.
That taught me to never expect warm weather where I'm going regardless of the
locales reputation. Pack accordingly.
