The weather outside is frightful...

Colorado spring snowstorm

Now that I've got that song stuck in your head, I'll tell you why:

In Denver we're currently getting hit with the beginnings of a blizzard. We did have plenty of warning, as yesterday they were predicting we'd get 8 to 15 inches in the city, and 1 to 2 feet in the suburbs along the Front Range. Even the schools closed today in anticipation, even though the snow hadn't started yet.

It started about 8:30 this morning, thankfully after I had dropped Michael off at work (he's planning to take the train home so he doesn't have to mess with the roads) and checked on my horse. The picture above was taken about 20 or 30 minutes after it started, and as you can see, the flakes were huge. What you can't see is that it was falling very quickly. It got thicker and faster, too, and is already starting to stick to our street.

Having nowhere else to go today, I am tempted to just curl up on the couch with a book and a cup of tea. Unfortunately, I have work I need to do first.

I suppose that's one thing I miss about working in an office: not being able to use a snowstorm as an excuse to take a day off. But it's hard to take a snow day when your office is 10 feet from your bedroom!
