Are You Ready For Some Snow Colorado?

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Aspen Lane Real Estate Colorful Colorado CRE# 40005863

One thing you can always count on when you live in Colorado is wild weather.


Today is expected to be in the upper 70's with lots of sunshine.


Monday is another story!


The forecast calls for highs reaching 38 degrees with snow beginning around 3am.  With a warm, sunny weekend, I am hoping that the streets will be too warm for snow to stick, but who knows.

If you haven't done it yet, this weekend is a good time to shut down your irrigation system and get ready for the freeze.


Be sure to turn the sprinkler valve in the basement off and remove the thumb screw so water has a chance to trickle out.  This screw should stay off until next spring when we start the cycle all over again.


Don't forget to disconnect hoses from the faucets outside as well.


With these cold temperatures, it is also recommended that you wrap your outside pipes and backflow devices in insulation.


Here we go Colorado!  What's next - 80 degrees on Tuesday?

Good morning, Belinda -- you and Colorado are probably a lot more ready for some snow than I am.  Or would be.  Or want to be.  And that's the way it should be...

Now, toss away those flip least until Spring or you make a return trip to SoCal.   Happy Saturday.

Hi Belinda  I guess if I lived in Colorado I would be. But not me, not now.

No say it's not true - you threw away your flip flops - Nooooooooooooooooo! Just like those Dutch Kids I vote for back to the 80's for Tuesday. It's too early for snow!

My boy is flying to Florida from Colorado tonight so he is going to miss the snow. We will be on the beach by 6:30 am tomorrow :):):)

You threw away your flip flops?  That amounts to sacrilege here in our neck of the woods.  I heard about the snow coming your way from our family...A

Way too early for snow is what I say. We have gotten it in upstate NY in October before though.

Hi Belinda, 

Though it seems to early for snow, it is very beautiful! You captured it so nicely. 

We won't (or shouldn't) see temps like this for another 6 weeks and generally won't even see a dusting of snow for another 2 months. Our season is very short as I like it to be, want it to be, and as it should be.  (I couldn't resist, after seeing Michael Jacobs post! LOL!)

That is indeed crazy, I would certainly enjoy the 70 degree weather, but the snow, not so much, haha.

Belinda Spillman - Now that's a gorgeous photo of your first fallen good and fluffy snow in Colorado! I like it!

You bring up good points about the sprinklers and freeze guarding the irrigation system. It's easy to get so excited about the snow that an owner can forget or didn't find the time to prepare in advance. Great advice!!!

Belinda Spillman - It was snowing and trees were covered with snow in East Glacier a few weeks ago. I do believe we're going to have an early winter! I'll be looking forward to your 2017 snow photos soon!

Hi Belinda

Jeez we just got done with summer and you are talking snow? Ugh. Glad I don't have to think about it. Seems the weather will reach a point where I have to put on long pants and socks now and then. LOL

Hi Belinda, I must admit, snow looks beautiful but I can't/wouldn't want to say goodbye to my flip-flops. Stay warm.
