Well, I guess we have a 7 year cycle. I just took this picture about 3 minutes ago. Here's a link to a storm we had 7 years ago.

We've got probably 10-12" out there. The back yard doesn't show as much as the front yard due to the swirling winds. Reason the pic looks blurry on the edges is because of the steam pouring out the back door.

You can see just how wet this snow is. We call it "blue snow".. can you tell why?

Toni: I was watching the news about the storm you had out there. Wow! Stay safe and keep warm. Just think: We're now officially in spring! Wait, don't throw that snowball at me!

well, according to the weather, this past storm is nothing compared to what's coming up Fri night. Predicted to get between 7 & 14 more inches by noon Saturday. gotta love March in Colorado... it's our snowiest month. I look at this way: more free water!

My co-worker just told me that we should start to see the flakes fly by no later than 1 and I told him I'm way too fat to fly.

And considering I was planning on digging up a tree tonight and transplanting two new trees in the morning, I definitely have to have good sense of humour about it... especially considering this is knocking my entire year's itinerary back by almost 2 months now. By now, I should have had my paver patio built in the back yard, but can't do it when it snows or is like 10 degrees (well, technically, I *could* do it, just don't wanna). Angry

Toni, you are a real mess! LOL (That's southern for we love your sense of humor and craziness)

This has been a crazy winter. Even snowed here several times ... last time was just last Monday in north Atlanta. Nutty.

Looking forward to seeing your gardens grow this year. I need ideas!!
