If you live in the northeastern plains of Colorado, you better do it quick! This is the time of year I really get a kick out of Colorado weather. We have feet of snow (not as bad as the east coast – show offs!), but ours is in drifts. Seems the wind just doesn’t want to quit out here, unless it is 100+degrees. So we received a wicked, wet, and wild snow storm, perfect for building a snowman. Unfortunately, the wind was so wild; you couldn’t stand to be out in it – boo hoo!

You know it’s a blizzard when:

  • It sticks to your greenhouse

  • When you can’t find your sister by the gray, shed

In about a week, we will have just remnants of this – so sad! (ok – NOT!) The best part is that this one was heavy and wet. This means it will soak in – wooo hoooo! Nice start to a spring planting season.

Yes, I am rather freaky in the fact that I love snow but hate the cold. Snow means fun, moisture, a snuggly feeling. Cold means my arthritis is gonna be screaming at me, my nose sticks together outside, and the water pumps (we have our own well) will freeze up. (Was stupid the first bad winter here and tried to force one open – LOL – had to replace that the following spring – idiot me!).

I think this is a big reason why I fell in love with Colorado. I must have my change of seasons, but the Colorado plains seem to know when I have had enough snow. Oh, did I mention that before this latest blizzard, I found green grass popping up beside the greenhouse. I took the time to yell at it for being too early, guess the snow showed it who’s boss right now!

  1. The only time I like snow is when seen through a window or on a postcard.
    I can stand the cold. I just put on a coat… But I really hate snow and the muddy slush you get after it. Thankfully I live in a place that doesn’t get much snow. >.>


  2. See now to me the snow means, snow forts, snow ball fights, sledding behind the tractor on a saucer, hot chocolate, playing days of Monopoly with family/friends…I have tons of great winter memories in WI. When the wind whips back in off the lake – OUCH! Think that’s why I don’t care for the negative temperature numbers – LOL. Thank you for reading even though it makes you brrrr! LOL


  3. Ohhh, I’m with you on what snow means to me. Hook up that saucer and I’ll be right over! Like you I hate the cold, especially when its dry. Give me a good WET snow and I’ll play outside all day… even if I have to do it by myself!! ;D

  4. That snow does look so cold. When my husband and I were first married we lived in Illinois. Ah winters there, with wind and snow, and snow drifts higher than one’s head. Oh brrrr. Use to love snow and I still do get out and photograph it, but do not stay out as long and my snowmen are smaller. lol
