No words... I'm out of words for this...

Miss Kitty is not impressed

This drift is waist high...

The hired man's house

the Edge... Stuck again - This time high centered...

The snowfield

So... What do you do when...

You get both the crossover Edge and the 4wdtruck stuck?

Yeah...  Not too bright, I am!

Ready to kill the Mr. who is 200 miles away telling me it isn't that bad...  REALLY?

Snow up to my chest in places, just knees in others.

Unable to get to the neighbors to feed their animals since they are on vacation.

Sure the hired man is thinking I'm an idiot and should have stayed home!

This is the same car I showed you in the previous post!No more front tire!

Dogs not thinking that this is very much fun!  One prissy Sheltie mix and a stubby legged Corgi...  Hilarity watching them try to navigate going potty!

Lungs still burning from running in knee deep snow.  Better go find my inhaler...

Yeah, um... Just look - And be very glad you are not here!

OH what a difference 14 hours makes!  The first two pics are the contrast I thought was striking looking out one window to another in the car.  That is definitely Colorado for ya!  Out one window you would think life was good, spring had sprung and all was well... 

Out the other window, darkness and very threatening clouds loom on the horizon.

Picture 3 - well that is what I woke up to this morning at 5:30 am!!!!!  And guess what?  The school district didn't think life was too snowy to call school, despite the fact that a rather frazzled bus driver called me to let me know she was stuck!  STUCK!  A bus that easily outweighs my car by four times!!!!!  Are you kidding me?  Needless to say, the Brown Household has shut down and we are now snugly tapping on our computers.

Be glad that your spring hopefully consists of flowers instead of flakes!

Springtime in the Rockies means...

  • Never knowing what to wear even if the sun is shining...
  • It can be 70 degrees at noon and 30 degrees at 5!
  • Cute clothes must be covered up by sweatshirts and parkas
  • Feet of snow instead of inches of rain
  • My SADD is almost over for another year!
  • mud...  lots of mud...
  • The shortest growing season known to man... (ok - not really, but it feels like it!)
  • Pogo gets a bath once a week
  • A renewed spirit of can-do-ness
  • watching the horses play outside for the first time - Que Bella!
  • Finding little blooms on the fushia that lives inside (because it is too stinking cold outside!)
  • Boy's lizard is awake and HUNGRY!
  • Little tufts of green amidst the dry and withered browns.
  • I am slowly awakening and excited to be creative again!
What does Springtime mean for you in your neck of the woods?  Share and leave me a comment - I'd love to read about it!
