Riding the Storm Out Was Easy this Time

And here we are, in the midst of a typically weird Colorado winter. I've been wearing shorts for three weeks now, it's been so nice. However, we just had a pretty intense storm. It snowed, hard, enough to accumulate an inch or two of wet, heavy, slushy snow, in less than an hour. Then, just as suddenly as it came, it stopped. And the sun is out. And I'm still in shorts. And while we do get more than our fair share of monster snowstorms, we also get a lot of these. It's all part of the privilege of living in Colorado. The forecast calls for more snow on Sunday. I'm gonna stick with the shorts! (Photo by me. It's the view from our apartment.)

We are expecting the same here tonight or in the morning and, same Sunday too, but at least it's supposed to be in the mid 40s most of the day.

@teamfreak16 Yeah, I am just relieved I made it to puffs and, got plenty of wood in. So, we're set at least this time. I won't have to be out there like Michael Landon on little house lol.

I don't think I'd be wearing shorts when there's snow about, but good for you.

The inconsistent shower of snow deprived me of an experience I so wanted .A few years ago I was in Florida and my nephew in Colorado told me they were were having inches of snow. I thought it would wait for me but it did not when i reached there a few days later.

I would stick with the shorts too! Weird weather in our Chicago suburb too. All the perennials are fooled into thinking it is spring and have their green shoots popping up for all to see. We are to get just a bit of snow and cold later in the week, but that will be disappointing for the green shoots.

It's all sunshine here in SoCal. You can always snowboard your way around town instead of your bike.

So did you get more snow this weekend? This season we have the mixed bag of weather - including showers, rain, wind, sunny warm days, sunny cold days, almost hot - and now chilly mornings and evenings again. We are thrown off by the rain (but I love it) as we haven't gotten this much in years. I got in one day this week where I could wear a tank and shorts - but all the rest of the days I couldn't figure out how to dress!
