Billie Holiday has certain cause to break out into song in Colorado!
You might know that Eastern Colorado’s being walloped by a snowstorm that by its end tomorrow is predicted to dump up to 20 inches in the mile-high city within about 36 hours, an accumulation that slots it into the top 10 heaviest storms in Denver history; to date, it’s the most snowfall in February in 81 years.
The Plains just to the east are bearing the brunt with blizzard conditions, severely reduced road visibility, a shutdown of a leg of the interstate.
And so it goes when it snows bigtime.
I could expound on the differences and contrasts between snow response and most significantly *attitude* in Denver/Colorado and Seattle/Puget Sound of western Washington (in fact had an entire post penned on the topic); however, with high likelihood of minimal readership interest or caring, I scrubbed it for a glance the wintry world burgeoned from sunny bone-dry conditions not even 24 hours prior!
You say potato, I say potato. You see big pots on the back porch, I see forest mushrooms.
Atticus looooves watching flakes! He yearns to gogogogogo in the snow!
The yellow hydrant just beyond the basketball hoop gives an idea of the accumulation in the past 12 hours. Tomorrow the storm tapers off; ’til then, keep bringin’ it on Billie and Mother Nature!
