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.
So excited to have another back country Hut trip on the horizon!! We head out next week and because I’m too excited to wait (hence the excessive use of the word “excited”) I thought I’d post a quick travel journal from our last Hut trip… just in case we don’t return from this one due to bears, mountain lions or/and “mother nature” (just a little stress for my mom).
We’re expecting snow today so I thought I’d share a few photos of what it looks like when snow comes over the mountains and starts to blanket the town. It really is lovely.
After 6 years in Boulder I still get crazy excited about snowy days. I’m sure it has to do with living in the South and seeing snow maybe 4 times in my life, which, by the way, equates to exactly one day off from school in 12 years …a little jab at my father, the Superintendent of Decatur City Schools and his firm stance that students are always safer IN SCHOOL when it’s cold outside.
