What it looks & feels like to be SNOWED IN in the Colorado Foothills west of Walsenburg

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

  1. 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…

  2. 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!!!
