Denver Weekend

We had our first snow last weekend and it was pretty good drop on the grass. No serious road problems, but it was nice driving down from Longmont and seeing as the snow on the ground becoming more dense as the road sped by as I traveled. This weekend the weather forecast looks pretty smooth.

I’ve heard that this winter is going to be milder than the last and I believe everyone in Denver and the Metro Area is doing everything in their power, prayers, wishes, hopes and dreams to have that rumor become a very real reality. I would be content with a mild winter since it lasts until at least April anyway. Yet there is a part of me that yearns for the blizzards, the blowing snow and the icy roads.

It’s my rebel spirit that refuses to be put down. I secretly want to be challenged in my rush hour drive. Yearning for the adventure of slipping and sliding over the pavement? Probably need to get myself to therapy or something. What do you think about the coming Winter? Mild? Mannered? Or will we feel like the red headed stepchild when all is said and done?

And are we sad we won’t see spring for what feels like an eternity?

Off topic but on topic: GO ROCKIES! red sox smell. :)

    I wouldn’t mind a milder winter simply because this is my first one here and my first winter in the snow in about 7 years. I’d like to kind of ease into it, you know?

    But if not, my new all-season tires and 4wd capabilities should help a little. That and the fact that I’m moving to a place where everything I do and everywhere I need to be is within a 2 mile radius.

    Eh, easing into it? Better to have a baptism by fire baby!..:)

    Sorry, but I’ve already voted for a good solid winter with lots of snow. That drought a few years back spooked me. I would take a very snowy winter over half-full mountain reservoirs anyday.

    Val, you’re totally right. I forgot about how nice it was this year not to have the drought. BRING ON THE BLIZZARDS!…:)

    Sure. Why not? I work from home. I’ll sit there sipping on my hot chocolate in my fleece while I work and you guys can fight the traffic on the freeways. :)

    Speaking of working from home – below this Daily Camera story about business taxes there is a comment about Personal Property Tax for people who work from home which gave me pause:
