Last Friday Boulder set a record for the most snow to ever fall during the month of February. More than eighteen inches came down in less than 24 hours, turning Boulder into one of the most magical snowy wonderlands I’ve ever seen. I know the storm was a pain for many commuters but because I never have to be anywhere at any particular time (a lifestyle element I’ve worked hard to keep) I was able to enjoy the weather with a warm fire, a grilled cheese sammie, and my handsome husband…far from the commuting population.
The snow stopped early Saturday morning so I knocked out my volunteer shoveling responsibilities early enough to join some friends for a snowshoe trek on Hall Ranch, an area of Open Spaces located outside of the funky little town of Lyons.
I’m so grateful for the beauty we brought into our lives by moving to Boulder. I might have my social issues with this crazy little town but I will never take the amazing lifestyle it affords for granted.
