Winter has finally arrived in Colorado Springs

The cold has finally arrived on the Colorado Front range. Here in Colorado Springs as I write this it’s about 37 degrees. Not bad really. Yesterday’s high was around 12 degrees.

We received a little bit of snow, maybe two inches total where I’m at. Some places had a bit more some less. Driving has been mostly good but with a few moments like the one below.

Today it’s sunny so no worries.

We needed the moisture.

Now to figure out a way to get to the mountains and out of the office.

Winter is a coming

There was a chill in the air as I woke this morning.  We leave our window open a bit for fresh air and this morning it was definitely fresh.  After getting a warm cup of tea and checking the news I took a look at the local temperature.  18 degrees.  It would appear winter has arrived. 

Now it’s not as bad as it seems.  The daytime high should hit 60 or so.  Well I hope it does anyway. 

Normally we get a first snow by now so this isn’t unusual but I always hope it will be warm on Halloween then it’s ok to turn cold.
