Spring blizzard

All winter, whenever I complained about the lack of snow, my roommate kept reminding me that we'll probably get it all in March. A dump of snow is very normal in Colorado in March - our spring blizzards.

Yesterday I started hearing forecast rumors that a storm was heading to CO and it would bring snow. I was skeptical (maybe more cynical) at first, but as the day went on I started to allow myself to hope, just a little. You could see the clouds heavy and dark over the mountains as they came east, but that's no guarantee... The crazy wind we've had all winter has always blown any chance of an actual snowfall away!

When I went to bed last night, I peeked outside. Still no snow. The cold air smelled like snow - we'll see, I thought.

When I woke up this morning, I peeked outside again - whiteness everywhere!!!!!

It keeps coming down... My roommate just told me that when she woke up at 4:50 this morning (no idea why), there was no snow on the ground. When I got up at 7:45, there was snow but the grass was still peeking through. Now, at 9:00 am the grass is completely covered, and it's still coming down. One of those annoying emergency alerts just came on the TV stating that the winter storm warning that was in effect for Fort Collins is now changed to a blizzard warning, in place until 6 am tomorrow morning. I won't lie - I'm totally excited!!

I should probably make a trip to the grocery store this morning - I'm low on grub and I have a feeling later this afternoon and evening won't be great travel conditions, especially for my little Honda Civic. My theater design class was supposed to have class outside today, taking pictures (we're in the photography section) - call me crazy, but I don't think we'll be doing that today.

Dare I wish for a snow day tomorrow?!?


  1. Hurrah! I expect pictures of you sledging and making snow angels - we've had our snow for the next 18 years so i need to live vicariously therough the weather of others...
