It Snowed In Boulder

We've actually had more than two feet of snow in Boulder in January. Here's six inches of it.

Or, strictly, in Erie. This is from the back yard. Not that much really, just about 6 inches, but it was wet and stuck to the trees real prettily, I think.

Only that little snow. I lived some 20 years there and taught at the uni. I can rember an April with a yard or two of heavy water-laden snow.The backyard you show looks llike the one I had. Thanks for the photos, it reminds me of days so long ago.

Ergo the tone of excitement in the headline. This has actually been a very snowy January, though, with a total of something like 27 inches.

I used to live on Balcolm Ct. in Old Town Erie, backing onto Coal Creek open space. Moved to Kansas about 8 years ago, just as the town was starting to really explode in size. Sometimes I miss Colorado, but not much since it's gone so off the wall lefty.

My Mother and her sisters - all but one gone - grew up at the Superior and Puritan coal mines outside of Erie - Erie HS grads from 42, 43 and 45 - I have a copy of the miner statue from the museum - told stories of the "cold wind and snow blowing in from Wyoming". Such a change in the Front Range over the years - my sister now live EAST of the old Lowrey bombing range and Titan (I think it was) sites.
...and that is why I moved south to Texas.

Wow. Yeah, I know -- I moved back to Colorado in '98, and most of the towns of Superior and Erie (and a whole lot of other towns here) were cattle ranches or corn and alfalfa fields.

I always thought snow was Gods' way of saying, "Move".

That's nearly identical to what my back yard looks like from Louisville!

I'm sure I'm fully 2 miles from you.
