Your picture sure looks pretty, but I hope for your sake that it melts soon. We got a bit of the white stuff here this week too, and there is still a lot in piles in the shady areas (like our whole front lawn). Today it was sunny and above freezing. Yippee! There is an end in sight. Happy camping!

The ground was warm enough during this last storm that I didn't even bother to get out the snow blower. It was all melted off the sidewalks and driveways by mid-morning yesterday.

This particular snow was wet enough that it will really boost the growth of spring plants just peeking out of the ground. One thing about Colorado snow in the lower altitudes is that you just need to wait a few hours and the good old sunshine will be back out.....I love living here

We got just under a foot of the white stuff here, and it was cold. Not terribly difficult to move, but the snow was compacted, thanks to the winds that came with the storm. I guess the worst part was this morning: It was -13F just before sunrise. We expect that kind of thing (and worse) regularly during mid-winter, but not in late March.

I didn't need that visual.

Channel 7 says it is going to snow again Thursday.

If it does, I am not going to acknowledge it.

regards,

Ken

Zep, as you know, the Front Range gets hammered in the spring and the Western Slope gets to see spring, as it is known in other regions, sooner. We had an inch of snow overnight, but the grass is looking greener and the deep snow areas are disappearing.

Good morning New York and all the ships at sea, Spring has sprung in Colorado and it's getting deeper by the minute...

PS--funny how these photos, taken weeks or months apart, tend to look exactly the same...

It must be the extra 2000 feet up.
I have not seen a single snow flake, but there has been 1 1/2 of rain in the last two days. Its still raining.

But it's sunny! Love it, love it, love it.

Colorado was the only place I ever lived where "60's and snowing" was not an unusual forecast.

We had 2" early yesterday, by 10 am it was gone. My favorite forecast in Colorado is "thundersnow". When we lived on the Front Range it happened in January complete with thunder, lightning and lots of heavy wet snow. Supposed to back to the 60's tomorrow.
