S is for Snow

Snow has been so prevalent in Denver this April, I couldn't NOT talk about it at some point. As a matter of fact, here was the scene outside my house this morning:

So....yeah...it's pretty crappy weather-wise and has been for most of the month. Now, I understand that April is Colorado's second snowiest month (preceded by March), but I'm used to spring snows where it dumps 8-10 inches and then it's 50 degrees and melted the next day. This April's weather has felt unrelentingly cold, windy, and snowy. I keep thinking of that line from Groundhog Day:
I'll give you a winter prediction: It's gonna be cold, it's gonna be grey, and it's gonna last you for the rest of your life.
I know that's not true; it' just feels true today. I'm trying to remain positive and keep a good attitude, but if I don't get to wear my cute spring dresses and open-toed shoes soon, Mother Nature and I are going to have words and it will not be pretty.

Wishing you all better weather than here and pretty spring days with trees budding, birds signing, and flowers peeking through the soil in your gardens. :)


  1. The pictures are beautiful, coming from someone who only visits snow and has never lived in it. I'm wishing you a gorgeous spring in the very near future and a beautiful summer, so you can spend more time outside.

    1. M.J. I'm glad someone can see beauty in something I have found to be irritating the past week. I guess it's all about perspective, isn't it? Thanks for helping me re-frame how I think about the pictures above and thanks for stopping by!

  2. I thought we were having a prolonged winter. I feel all the more thankful for being able to get outdoors. Hopefully spring finds you soon too.

    Have fun with a-z.

    1. Jessica, I think we might be headed for spring weather finally! 70's by this weekend. (Mary does a happy dance!) Enjoy your outdoor time (grill a steak for me--ha!) and thanks for stopping by!
