Snow and Tornado Warnings~Colorado, the Extreme

Wheat Ridge, Colorado
October 14, 2021 8:38am CST
I wish I was in one of those lovely mountain ski resorts right now. Do you ski? Have you ever been to one of Colorado's ski resorts? They are world famous. I like to envision myself, with family and friends, in front of a nice fireplace, with one of those ski sweaters on and hot chocolate in hand. It is the wild west here right now for weather. This morning it was 35F here in Wheat Ridge, CO.

I think the idea of skiing is more appealing to me than the actual doing it When I think of skiing the same image comes to mind for me....fireplace, hot chocolate, friends and/or family and the whole ambience of it all.

No, I don't ski. The hot chocolate part of the program, however, does sound quite good. It isn't "cold enough" for hot chocolate here yet, but I may have to have some nonetheless. While coffee and tea are year-round drinks for me, I generally relegate hot chocolate to the winter months.

I am so glad you enjoy hot chocolate. Since I had given up dairy for a while, I was making it with cashew milk believe it or not and it was lovely.

@RebeccasFarm I see the snow in the picture. I cannot remember if was at a resort in Colorado. I have been to Denver and Colorado Springs. That would be nice to sit in front of a fireplace. I do not think I was in Wheat Ridge. I grew up in the Midwest so did cross country skiing. I have never regular skiied. I love hot chocolate. I like to drink it all year round.

@RebeccasFarm My cousin Sharon, her husband Don and their family, they spent quality time in Colorado ski resorts. These resorts were their family vacation site, every year!

@RebeccasFarm Oh yeah, many times..When you grow up in snow country you learn to ski, well at least I did. I took it in college and used to ski with my ex as well. Son is a really good skier but hasn't gone for years.

@RebeccasFarm We had friends in Monte Carlo who went to Colorado for skiing. I am not a fan of cold, here it would be fine, only a couple of days and then back home.

It might be very chilly. I have never experienced snow fall or have ever skied. Though I have seen the snow clad mountains in Darjeeling.

Colorado is one of the seven states I haven’t made it to yet. Maybe next year. I want to visit the Four Corners region. But I don’t ski, so there wouldn’t be any reason for me to visit a ski resort.

I've been watching your wild weather out there. We are suppose to get a major cold front this weekend. High's in the 60's lows in the 40's, perfect weather for me. Sadly I have never been to your state. Close to it but not in it. Yet.
