Enough Is Enough!

5 February 07

Ever since Denver had the huge blizzard just before Christmas, we’ve had some kind of substantial snow almost every single week. Actually, I think the stat is that it has snowed every week since then. And now they’re predicting snow again this week! Can you believe it? The nerve. Even when I give the falling snow “The Look”, they persist in falling. Such insensitivity to me and my needs (not to mention the needs of Colorado ranchers, who took a huge hit from that first snow with over 8,000 cattle dying as a result).

It’s not that I don’t like snow. I do! It’s just this stuff refuses to melt. Only now, well over a month and several warm sunny days after the blizzard of Dec. 22, has the snow begun to creep back so that I can at least see a few feet of our lawn in back (most of it is still covered in a substantial depth of snow). And the ice. A lot of the snow has been packed down, especially in parking lots and on sidewalks where people haven’t been diligent about shoveling (our backyard sidewalk is a prime example of this right now). Also, when we have a warm day the sun will melt the snow and ice (yay!) but when there isn’t proper drainage, as is often the case when packed snow and ice is involved, the water doesn’t really go away, it just kind of hangs around until nighttime and becomes a sheet of treacherous ice. Ick!

So, as I said, I’ve had it. I’m moving away!

Not very far away, though. We made an offer on this house (if all goes well, the closing should take place at the end of the month) is in Edgewater, just west of Denver. It’s a neat little community that seems to be headed on an upward path of growth and development. We plan on renting our current house in Englewood out.

Somehow I get this feeling that even this move won’t improve my chances of getting good weather…

  1. Yay on the move! The house looks really nice. We had 3 inches of snow last week so I guess that’s our winter.

  2. Anna, switch forecasters. While NOAA may predict doom and gloom, at the moment, 9news says Friday will not bring snow, but “Mostly cloudy in the morning, partly cloudy and hazy in the afternoon. It will be cooler yet with lows in the low 20s, highs in the upper 30s and lower 40s.”

  3. John, it just goes to show that it’s not just who you ask but when you ask. It’s definitely not uncommon to see the forcast change hour-by-hour, and definitely day-by-day!
