The snow is coming, hopefully

The snow is coming Wednesday into Thursday. At least I’m hoping it does. It’s been awhile since we have had a big storm.

This is what Accuweather is predicting for my town.

Let’s hope this materializes.

Spring in Colorado

You just got to love the weather in Colorado, particularly the spring weather.
This past week, it was in the low 70’s for a couple days, but from Thursday to Friday the temperatures dropped 35 degrees and we got about 6 inches of snow.

Well today the temps started warming up and now the snow is mostly melted. It will warm up to the 60’s but we are now into a pattern of rain/snow storms every 3-5 days.

One thing is for sure, this moisture will help green up the yards for summer.

You have to love Spring in Colorado.

From Spring to Winter

Well spring has been short-lived in Denver. After the last few days of mid-60’s and 74 today, winter returns tomorrow.
The weather forecasters were telling us that the weather coming for Sunday wouldn’t be a problem and that at most it would be flurries. But it is now worse.

We are supposed to get 3-6 inches at our house with more nearby. And it is supposed to be quite windy, so we may see blizzard conditions. Great job weather forecasters.

Now don’t get me wrong, I am loving the snow. It means that we are having a great water year and everything is going to be quite green. After many dry years, the reservoirs should be full and we may be able to make a dent in filling other reservoirs in the west.

Let it snow, but it would be good to have some better forecasting so we can be prepared for it.

It is wrong to compare the sale of to It is not even close.

First Big Snow Hits Denver

Well the first big snowfall of the season is hitting Denver.  It is nice to see. (Let’s see if I am saying that in a month or two.)
We need the moisture and the mountains are getting hammered.  If you want to ski the Colorado Rockies, now is the time.  They are measuring the snow in feet, so now is a good time to go.

Let’s hope this is a good sign to come for the winter.  We need the water out west and the winter snowfall is how we get most of it.


Keep the snow machine humming and dumping snow in Colorado.
