Oh, you don't also have a black pyramid with the brightest light in the world perched atop it.  Hmm, I suppose next you're going to tell me you don't have a volcano that erupts on a regular schedule and instead of running from it, it draws people towards it. Honestly, I'll never understand why people choose to live in less than acceptable standards or how they survive it. Hell even the homeless here get it. There is a better option people and it's called Las Vegas.  But, umm, unfortunately, not by where we live.  Yeah, they are...umm...sold out.  Yep, sold out of places to live.  I hear Hendertucky is nice.  You should check that out.  Then maybe you too can have a skyline with views like this one, shared by @JediLightowlerof Luxor fronting a lightening storm. Again, I felt out move to Vegas was a big deal but had no idea it would create apocalyptic weather conditions.

This...is home now.  We did it. We moved to Las Vegas.  It's a dream come true and so far, it's been everything we'd hoped it would be and more than we could have ever imagined.  And the mind fuck of it all is this isn't luck. We aren't fortunate or blessed.  We made this happen.  We came to an agreement it was something we wanted to do.  So we set it as a goal, developed a plan, worked hard, saved and when the opportunity presented itself, executed that plan with precision.  In that way, we're less winners of the lottery and more examples of the American dream when you put your mind to something, you can accomplish anything.  Or maybe that was George McFly.  Regardless, who knew our arrival via lightening would be captured so eloquently by this week's winner, @vegasphotography
