INCLINE VILLAGE, Nev. - Wow I thought I was in Alaska for a few days. Where did the freezing temperatures come from? Lots of broken water pipes from that cold snap around the village. If you happen to see water running out your neighbor's next door, that is most likely what happened. Hope that weather does not return.
