As many of you already know, I am pretty obsessed with weather watching! I have been reporting daily precipitation to COCORAHS and the Weather Service since the Fort Collins Spring Creek flood in July 1997.
But last night was a lifetime record for me!
This morning I looked out at 23 inches of snow, and it’s still coming down!
Mike went out at 7 AM to measure it for me…
and get our overflowing rain gauge. Yep, 1.23 inches of precipitation!
Yep, it’s really 25 inches total!
Needless to say, Rasta and I have decided to stay in today…
The storm is over and the Juncos are HUNGRY!
Doo doo doo lookin’ out my back door…

Looks like a day for a pot of chili with cornbread…or if cornbread sounds too labor intensive, fritos. While the chile is making the house fragrant, a cup of tea, a couple of three ingredient peanut butter cookies, a good book and a snuggly lap robe. The sight of snow makes the fire warmer…
Yep, it makes me think of food too Marquita!
Wow! And WOW! I actually love snow. I sometimes wish it would arrive ‘in season’ but what does that even mean any more?!
Snow means staying home by the fire for me, too! Family time!!!
I love snow too Diane! “Oh the weather outside is frightful and the fire is so delightful…”
