Yesterday’s all-important liquor store excursion in the sideways blowing snow left my face a bit wind-burned (as evidenced by Alex’s cry as I crawled into bed: “Oh my God, what happened to your face?!”), so this afternoon I waited till the wind subsided before chancing further exposure to the elements. By noon, the snow had stopped, the sun was out, the mountains reappeared in the distance, and the only evidence of yesterday’s storm was the sea of white that had settled in around us. It was a beautiful day to wander around, sans car, and appreciate December in Colorado.
Snow on the rails… Snow is pretty amazing when you really think about it. If you look at it up close, it’s like a million little crystal snowflakes just holding hands.
Calm after the storm… The view from the balcony. We hadn’t seen those mountains in two days.
Overhang… With that sun hitting it, no doubt we’ll have some giant killer icicles tomorrow afternoon. Must… resist… urge… to… knock them off as the neighbors pass by below!
“The Ride” that never came… Speaking of going nowhere fast.
Great day for a walk… We found a small path plowed along the sidewalk.
Fluffy little trees… I love when the evergreens hold the snow that way. Reminds me of when I was a kid in Buffalo.
Snowscript… Look, he wrote out my nickname – “Bims.” At least he used his feet and not his… Oh, Alex is so sweet!
Sunset behind the mountains… The field across from home.
Snow angels… Since it doesn’t often snow like this here in Denver, I’d almost forgotten how fun it is to just fall backwards and make a snow angel.
