Snow day!

By Katharine Swan On Saturday, April 18, 2009 At 8:09 PM

We've had a nice reminder lately that nothing about Colorado weather is normal, not even April showers.

It rained all day Thursday, and snowed and threw ice pellets at us all day Friday. This morning Michael and I woke up at 6:30 to our power being out. It came on about two hours later, around when the snow turned back into rain. It didn't stop until mid-afternoon.

Michael had already asked for Friday off for other reasons, which turned out to be lucky because he wouldn't have wanted to drive home in the crazy snow we got around rush hour Friday evening. Which brings me to what I see as a really big achievement: getting work done with Michael home. It doesn't usually happen, but I managed to withstand temptation, ignore distractions, and accomplish several very productive hours of work with him present.

By the way, join me in wishing a very happy birthday to Kathy Kehrli, whose birthday was yesterday!
