It is only the end of November, still technically fall, and not quite winter, yet we have already had about 5 major snow storms so far, and the season is only just starting. This current storm, is by far the worst yet. It is an official snow day for most of Northern Colorado. Most things are shut down, with only emergency personnel out to work and on the roads. I live in Westminster, Colorado, which is at the very southern tip of the Front Range Mountains, just outside of the Boulder area. We have about 8-10 inches of snow, Boulder, which is only about 15 minutes away from us, is reporting 22 inches of snow, and up near the Wyoming border, in Red Feather Lakes, about 1 1/2 hours North of us, is reporting 32 inches of snow. AND IT IS STILL SNOWING! It’s beautiful to look at from the comfort of the inside of my house, where it is nice and warm, but I am VERY glad I do not have to be outside driving in it. I really for sorry for all those that have to be outside in all of this. Lucie and Vinnie, however, are loving their snow day; Mommy and Daddy are both home, AND they get to romp in the snow. If you are a snow-loving Saint Bernard, life is very good right now.
This is our back deck, overlooking our first lake.
This is a view of the front. The roads are completely blanketed in white. Nothing to do but to stay safe and warm inside.
Instead of stairs, we have a snow slide.
Lucie and Vinnie enjoying their snow day. See how happy Lucie is? 🙂
Vinnie is one happy boy right now. 🙂
Come on. Let’s play!!!!!!
With all this snow outside, we need something to keep us warm on the inside. I have chili cooking in the slow cooker at the moment. It will be done just around dinner time. YUM! All I need to do is make some cornbread and honey butter to go with it, and we will have the perfect winter meal for this cold, snowy day.
