Day one in the new apartment (Broomfield, CO)

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.”

Let it snow, let it snow (April 17, 2016)

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).

Snow melts fast on the mountains in Colorado

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.
