We were supposed to wake up to 6" of snow and watch it become a foot by noon.

Well?



The ground is barely wet, nothing coming down yet.

Do I need to buy a bike or what?

Dusting of really wet stuff on the yards and cars.

I'm getting tired of this weather for sure, but thankful for the moisture that's soaking in. Fourmile was super dry a month ago.

It's my fault

I washed both cars last Sunday and now we've had a whole week of crappy weather. In north COS we have just a dusting but it is windy and 29F outside at 9 AM. Nasty windy.

I put down some lawn food yesterday and fixed the backflow preventer (again), and was really looking forward to a good foot of melting snow.

More like wind-blown sleet here, layer of ice on everything facing into it.

Good garage day

If it's going to snow we sure as hell better get like 2 feet of it. I'm tired of this inch here, inch there stuff.

Be careful what you ask for, not all of us have that outrigger hanging off our bikes
