Breaking News — Las Vegas Style

Living in the Midwest, we see all kinds of weather.  However, it’s very interesting how fast thunderstorms can pop up in the desert city of Las Vegas.

While eating dinner last night at Monte Carlo, Ray’s iPhone alerted him that a “Flash Flood Warning” was in effect.  We walked out from dinner to find the Strip looking like this!

It’s crazy how poor the drainage systems are here in desert where rain is not common!  That picture is what just .09″ of rain in 30 minutes can do in a concrete jungle.

Okay, the breaking news is not about the weather.  You can take the boy of the weather center, but you can’t take the weather out of the boy.

We scored an early surprise birthday present!

Elton John is performing at the Colosseum at Caesars Palace and we just got tickets for less than half price!

These seats are amazing!

While the “Rocket Man” didn’t perform one of my favorite songs Thursday night from a set list I found online, “Empty Garden (Hey Hey Johnny), he performs many that I love including “Blue Eyes” and this favorite!

Now, what am I going to wear that will be fun, but not out bedazzle Elton!  The show begins at 7:30 p.m. Vegas time, so I have two hours to get ready!  Gotta run!!


Last night’s unconfirmed set list:
