Still Fighting the Crud

Just when I thought I was feeling better, the crud came back with a vengeance.  This has been going on now for over three weeks.  I am so done with it.  I am sick and tired of being sick and tired.  There is no other way to describe it except to call it “The Colorado Crud”.  As much as I have wanted to be in the kitchen, it just hasn’t happened.  However, I will be making some chili today.  It is perfect chili weather.  This is what it looks like right now.  This is the view from my back deck, overlooking our first frozen pond.  This snow just came in late last night and into the wee hours of the morning.  Now this being Colorado, most of it will be gone by tomorrow, but at the moment, we are in almost complete white-out conditions.


This is from my front porch.


The view from the office, upstairs.


We are in almost total white-out conditions.  I tried to make it in to work this morning, and made it about 8 blocks.  It took me 30 minutes to make those 8 blocks, and I saw at least 15-20 cars stuck and skidding all over the place.  So I called in and said NO WAY!  Then it took me another 30+ minutes to make it safely back into my garage.  For all of those driving in this today, be safe, be smart and be careful.

  1. Praying for you! This weather is nuts. I had to shovel a bunch of snow this morning before 7 a.m. My wife said it took an hour to get to work. Usually only takes 20 minutes. Accidents everywhere. They should have made it a snow day. God bless!

  2. I mean.. in all that awesome weather I just can’t see why everyone is so under the weather!

    Seriously though, I hope you start feeling better ASAP!

  3. The snow is beautiful, but only for a little while. 🙂 I’m glad you made it home safely. I’m sorry you’re feeling bad again. You need to get some rest! Be A Jeanne in the Bed!! 😁
