We're getting our snow. Boy, howdy, we're getting our snow. Magnum and I just finished making a second shoveling pass of the various surfaces. It's really coming down, but I personally would rather shovel 3 inches of snow four times than shovel a foot of snow once.
I took the dogs out first thing this morning, and they were looking at me like, "Wha happened overnight?"
And there is currently about twice as much snow on the ground as in the pic. The main happy dance around here is how this helps contain the various wildfires. No, the snow won't put them out. In fact, I'm sure plenty of the snow melts and evaporates before it even hits the ground near the fires, but it will certainly help slow the spread.
I was at work yesterday, and one of the cooks got a notification that the East Troublesome fire was approaching the highly popular Estes Park YMCA camp. We all commiserated our special memories of the place and crossed our fingers that it would be spared. The camp is the area where we spent the first part of 2016, 'member?
We were there in the wintertime, but it's even more popular during summer months for its access to outdoor recreating in Rocky Mountain National Park.
But I'm reminded...
