    Las Vegas is experiencing, and embracing, some briskness at the moment. All right, maybe it’s not all that brisk compared to your hometown, but for Sin City, anything under 50-degrees is a cold snap!

    A chilly few days has provided Vegas visitors, and this blog, a rare opportunity to capture the Caesars Palace fountains in all their shimmering, mid-winter glory.

    We’ve already pitched “Cleo on Ice” to the powers-that-be at Caesars Palace.

    Time to brush up on our ice fishing skills.

    The nozzles in the fountains are made to resist widely varying temperatures (from winter chills to toasty summers), so the fountains are in no danger of freezing up entirely.

    How cold is it in Las Vegas? Why, let’s ask our friends at Photoshop!

    Thankfully, the sun’s still shining, as it does 361 days of the year in Las Vegas.

    This, despite the fact, we just made that number up.

    The ice on the surface of the ponds surrounding the fountains is estimated to be about 2-3 inches thick. Sorry, no ice skating. Or whatever people do with on ice. Typically, in Vegas, the only ice we see gets crushed into tasty beverages.

    Our dazzling winter fountain wonderland isn’t expected to last long, but we’re enjoying it while we can. Bring along a sweater if you’re visiting within the next couple of weeks. Or someone wearing a sweater. If you know what we’re saying. Because we’re not entirely sure we do.

    Enjoy a few more exclusive photos from the fabulous fountains of Caesars Palace. Who wants to ride on the Zamboni? Again, if you know what we’re saying.

    Bio: The Pulse of Vegas blog includes references to “we” often. But it’s actually written by one (incredibly modest) individual, Scott Roeben, a humorist, photographer, author and longtime Las Vegas resident. “We should probably interview ourselves sometime. We find us fascinating,” he says. The Pulse of Vegas blog is the official Las Vegas blog of Caesars Entertainment, the folks who run a bevy of Las Vegas hotels. It received the inaugural “Most Valuable Las Vegas Blogger” award by CBS Local/KXNT News Radio.
