Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- The downpour fell past the lights and dripped from a pavilion in a park near Centennial Hills Friday night.
That didn't stop Boot Camp Las Vegas instructor Richene Plummer from putting her pledges through their paces. She said not even rain can get in the way of a regularly-scheduled work out.
Plummer said, "Rain or shine. We're here when it's 120 degrees out in the summer, and we're here when it's 20 degrees in the morning and windy."
But even baddest boot camper wasn't braving the snow falling just a few miles away. It capped the mountains, and as the day wore on, the frozen precipitation melted and turned into rivers that made streets slick.
Gutters clogged with debris and low-lying clouds obscured the horizon.
But there was some good news.
For once, the deluge that socked the Northwest didn't flood the eastern part of the valley.
But it did soak the boot campers who were willing to weather the weather.
Jeff Thomas said, "When you've got the rain to deal with and the water and stuff, it just makes it more challenging."
