Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow. These are the Colorado snowfall totals for the morning of November 26, 2019, with significantly more snow expected today. Image courtesy of this tweet by Troy Renck.
I had to go to a physical therapy appointment early this morning in Louisville, Colorado, and one benefit of getting up early were some beautiful views of the overnight snow, clouds on one side of the sky, and sunshine on the other.
A tub of applesauce exploded when I returned to higher altitude (driving back to Colorado from Kentucky). I’m always surprised when that doesn’t happen to my brain.

A crow in the snow, a memory of a winter past.
Cowabunga, me going to need more cookie dough.

October 29, 2019: We already have a few inches of snow on the ground, and reports call for another five inches today, with temps in the teens.
This is a view of the Rocky Mountains that are west and south of Boulder, Colorado. The apartment I lived in was located in the south/west area of Broomfield. There was actually a sign on the street in front of the apartments that said, “Welcome to Superior,” but somehow my apartment was in Broomfield.
I used to live next to a big, open field in Broomfield, Colorado, and used to enjoy listening to the coyotes at night. Eventually they got their own sign.
Less than 24 hours back in Colorado, and I made a woman cry today.
But it was a good thing.
We were talking and I mentioned something we had talked about previously, and she said, “I can’t believe you remember that,” and started crying.
Just like someone lifted my spirits back in December of 2005 (a story I wrote about recently), never underestimate the effects of a kind word.

I don’t know what the exact numbers are, but Colorado is growing very rapidly, especially in this area where I live in the cities near Boulder. On a walk today I counted that 66 out of 220 license plates I saw were out-of-state license plates, meaning that a whopping 30% of my neighbors are from out of state and haven’t changed their license plates yet.
