So.. I've decided to write about one of my favorite subjects... Colorado. As a girl growing up, I dreamed of one day living in Colorado and, now, for the past 27 years, I'm living the dream.
A college friend asked me this week if I didn't just freeze here in Denver. My answer: "Absolutely not!" Ok. There was that first winter here where there was a streak of 30 days in a row that the high didn't get above zero. But that wasn't typical. We actually have fairly mild winters. Can you say golf in January? When you think Colorado and skiing and the pictures of snow, that's up in the mountains mostly. Sure! We get snow. Early last week it was really cold (I had to put on a coat) and we had several inches of snow. By Saturday it was 70. We had a little dip the next few days, but today and tomorrow it's back up to the 60s. The highs are only supposed to be in the 40s over the weekend, but, hey... it's January.
Typically, April is our snowiest month here in Colorado so even though some of the trees are beginning to bud and I've heard birds singing this week, that will all change in the next month or so. They'll realize THAT was a mistake. It's definitely still winter.
By the way, the friend who asked me about freezing lives in Houston. I'd much rather spend a winter in Denver than a summer in Houston! (wink wink)
