A case of “The Plague” is reported in Broomfield, Colorado. The story is here at thedenverchannel.com.
Five years ago I moved to Colorado and was living in two hotels, one on the south side of Denver and another on the north side, trying to decide where I wanted to live. On this day (October 11th) I moved into my first apartment in Broomfield, and made this post on Facebook:
“Day one in the new apartment, slept on the floor, and there’s nothing to eat. Planning skills are still questionable. But the fireplace is nice.”
Oh the weather outside is frightful ...
Actually, it’s not too bad, just a lot of snow, which seems a little weird for this time of year — April 17, 2016. It was supposed to end by 6am today, but it’s 10:30am right now, and it’s still coming down pretty good.
Which reminds me of this song, Like the Weather, by 10,000 Maniacs (Live, Unplugged).
According to the City of Boulder, Colorado Government Facebook page, this photo from 1866 is one of the oldest known photos of Boulder, Colorado. As someone commented on that page, there are no trees shown in the area. I’m told that pretty much every tree you see in Boulder, Longmont, Louisville, Broomfield, etc., was planted by man.
I was surprised to see a Sierra Springs truck in Broomfield, Colorado yesterday. I thought “Sierra Springs” was a fictional Adrian Monk thing. (After I realized what it was, I was also surprised that the truck wasn’t cleaner.)
I just got this in the mail. A local town is having a “cookie exchange,” and being something of a cookie connoisseur, I may have to check this out.
I haven’t figured out where one town ends and the next begins around here, but this is a field of prairie dogs I saw while on a walk last week in either Broomfield or Louisville, Colorado. (The snow is gone this week. It usually doesn’t last very long.)
I noticed during a walk yesterday that my neighbors now have their own sign.

After yesterday's snowstorm, about 5" locally, I woke up to completely white mountains. Twenty minutes later they looked like the top photo, and twenty minutes after that they looked like the bottom photo. Between the thin air (my apartment is at 5,800') and the sun, the snow disappears fast here, either by melting or ablation.
