Happy 2018! All that hype and now we’re here! New Years can feel like standing in two states at the same time, don’t ya think? Now we’re two days passed the threshold but there’s no need to rush, we can resolve to be here now. Here on the western slope of Colorado we’ve had just two small snow storms this winter, an astonishing difference to the 350+ inches of snowfall we had last winter. No digging out windows or jumping off of roofs into pillowy snow piles. So with a snow storm, however heavy, brings much excitement to the townspeople and tourist right now. The days have peaked at temperatures as high as 44 degrees melting the snow at a rapid rate. I managed to snap these photos as the storm was moving out which just happened to make room for the colors of evenings sky.
Good news: we have snow forecasted for this weekend! Who knows just how much will fall but I can only hope it’s enough for my husband to use his new split board. He has waited years to get one and of course the year it happens there’s no snow in Colorado! It’s like having no sand at the beach, it really makes one wonder!
I hope your transition to the New Year has been as seamless and as beautifully colored as days transition to evening. Be gentle with yourself.
Thank you for joining me here and until next time,
Happy Trails ♥
