Jim Burnett on national parks traveler:

… the first words you read on the park website”Hottest, Driest, Lowest“don’t sound much like winter. That makes the park scene on January 3, 2011, a bit out of the ordinary. …

The snow level was at 2,000 feet in the hottest, driest, and lowest region in the Western Hemisphere.”

The lower elevations of Death Valley rarely get snowonly about once a decade on the valley floorand that’s usually just a dusting. In contrast, the neighboring community of Pahrump, about 60 miles away, had four to six inches of snow from the recent storm. …

It even snowed in Vegas.
