Only one of us is happy for October snow.
I love autumn. Aspen leaves changing from green to shades of yellow that dance and catch the sunlight in ways the delight. But in Colorado, the calendar may say October 10th, but winter demands attention.
The day before was 75, today 10/11, is 40 and the warmth of the sun fierce. But the warning of winter coming is clear.
Snow, snow go away,
Don’t you know it’s the end of May?
We have snow again. Not the foot or more that was predicted, but the sandals are back in the closet and the warm clothes aren’t yet put away.
Tomorrow is May 1st.
Charlie loves the snow! He looks for the deepest pile he can find and burrows his face in. He happily frolics through drifts and pristine off trail snow. His most recent addition to his repertoire of enjoying the snow is roll in it on his back.
