Well, it's official...
Colorado has the strangest weather EVER!
I've been here 2 years, but STILL have not gotten used to the fact
that it can snow in October (and sometimes September)
all the way through May (and sometimes June)!
The forecast today...
Issued by The National Weather Service
Wed., Oct. 28, 2009
WINTER STORM WARNING REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 6 PM MDT THURSDAY...
A WINTER STORM WARNING REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 6 PM MDT THURSDAY.
SNOW... HEAVY AT TIMES WILL CONTINUE INTO THURSDAY. TOTAL SNOWFALL ACCUMULATIONS OF 14 TO 28 INCHES ARE EXPECTED... WITH UP TO 36 INCHES POSSIBLE NEAR THE FOOTHILLS. NORTH WINDS OF 15 TO 30 MPH WILL PRODUCE AREAS OF BLOWING AND DRIFTING SNOW.
POWER OUTAGES WILL BE POSSIBLE BECAUSE OF THE ADDED WEIGHT OF THE HEAVY SNOW ON BRANCHES AND POWER LINES AND SOME TREE BRANCHES MAY SNAP DUE TO THE WEIGHT OF THE SNOW.
Are you kidding me!?
This has got to be some kind of joke!
I keep waiting for someone to say
"Smile...you're on Candid Camera"!
Unfortunately, this is my sad, unfortunate reality.
I like the snow when it's CHRISTMAS time....
not when it's 3 days before HALLOWEEN!
I suppose my daughter will have to trick-or-treat
in 2-3 feet of snow on Saturday.
My mind is terribly confused, however.
( I know...nothing new!)
I cannot decorate for Fall when it's snowing, so I've decided to.....
BREAK OUT THE CHRISTMAS DECORATIONS!
Why not? It'll give me an extra month to enjoy them.
Nobody comes over for Thanksgiving anyway!
Besides...all the stores have THEIR Christmas items out already...
Why not me?!
I will wait until Sunday to put them out...
But I'm taking them out of the attic tonight!!!
'Tis the Season everyone!
