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.

Rent in Denver, Colorado rose almost as fast as rent in the San Francisco Bay Area, according to this story by the Denver Post. But the good news is that despite rising 47% from 2010 to 2017, rent in Denver is still much lower than San Francisco.
We don't get much snow in the Boulder area, but up in the mountains near Vail and Aspen, Colorado, they usually get plenty. This was taken at a rest area near Vail.

A lot of people don’t believe it when they come to the Boulder, Colorado area, but there were very few, if any, trees in Boulder and other towns like Louisville naturally. As you can see in this image from the 1800s, there are a few trees on the left side of the image, which is west, and closer to the mountains. Louisville, Colorado is east of here.

A few quotes from Gary Kubiak about new Broncos QB Case Keenum, from this Houston Chronicle article:
The reason he’s where he is, first and foremost, is his work ethic. He wants to be great. His presence among his teammates is as good as I’ve ever seen. He never judges people or acts like he’s above them. He treats everybody the same, and guys want to make plays for him.
Case played well (in his rookie year), but we couldn’t win a close game. One thing I learned about Case is that he’s such a mentally strong person. He can handle any type of locker room and any kind of teammate. He’s very consistent on and off the field. His teammates respect that.
A lot of guys would just go in the tank with a start like that (0-8), but Case kept battling because that’s the kind of guy he is. He’s very comfortable in his own skin.
I don’t care who he plays for, you’re not going to put Case in an uncomfortable situation. He’s got a lot of confidence in who he is and how he carries himself. Guys respond to that.

Brock Osweiler on the Denver Broncos quarterback situation, circa December, 2017: “There’s a lot of things that take place in this business that you can’t control,” Osweiler said. “And I think the sooner you learn that, the better mindset you’ll have toward situations like this. So I support whatever the front office decides, the coaches decide. I’m just here to work hard and play quarterback when my number is called.”
There’s a little snow in the big mountains to the west and northwest of Boulder, Colorado.
