The weather forecasters had predicted “The Big One” all week. But did I believe them? NO! Not until I woke up this morning, earlier than usual, to a bright shaft of light penetrating a window covered in snow. Where I live it has piled up in amounts over 14 inches and it is still coming down! The last time I checked, 31 Colorado counties were under some kind of advisory or warning.
The kids are excited too! My son posted on his Facebook page that his college is closed for the day. I just called him and it seems he has gone back to sleep…
Only yesterday I climbed the apple tree to pick the last of the season’s bounty. Note to self: Don’t ever do this again while wearing slippery rubber boots.
I have been in the Halloween spirit all month. You may have read about one of my chilling nights. Now it appears a Halloween “trick” has arrived early! Luckily, forcasters are expecting temperatures in the 60 degree range for the holiday next Monday.
The weight of the snow has downed power lines and stripped branches from trees.
You can feel the weight on this blanketed oak.
The heavy wet snow is hard to navigate through.
The leaves hang frozen in peak color.
