Oh, Hail. Beautiful Devastation

Weather in Colorado can be unpredictable. When green tinged thunderclouds roll in, I cross my fingers we don't get hail. Yesterday, pea-sized hail grew to marble size in seconds.

April! April! Where for Art Thou?

I used to be addicted. I waited for hours for my next fix. As I checked the time for next update, I would yawn. Finally at 10:20 PM, the weather forecast would begin. Our local forecasters have been waaaay off all winter. Every time they predicted The Big One, the sun would shine. One afternoon... Continue Reading →
