Yup. Any weather is normal in Colorado. I once went to school in Colorado springs in July, and we had to close down for a day .... for snow.

Anyway, our predicted blizzard hit. Husband had to shovel snow twice and will have to again in the morning.

It's dark out, but I hear rain. I think it's in the 40's. I hope it's not freezing rain, like yesterday. We were without power all morning into the afternoon. Mark went out to buy firewood, in case we lose power again.... no luck, but he did buy candles.

Right now it is snowing hard. And the temp is 17F. I have no plans of going anywhere today. So I will play with my new Shark Steamer.

That's what I need! I might go out later to get a few things, if I'm able to walk to the car, it's a sheet of ice on the sidewalk and parking lot.

Just be careful. I don't go outside when the weather stinks. I hate broken hips.

Mark had to go into work this morning. He left then came back in to put his boots on. That was the only way he could get to his truck.

I don't even own a pair of boots. Haven't for several years. I tried a pair on and the top hit right where my skin graft is. Am not willing to take the risk of damaging it. I went through too much to save the leg. Will be danged if I am going to lose it now.

23 and we didn't get as much of a storm as was expected yesterday. A bit of a crunch on top of the snow from the sleet last night.
