That’s all that NOAA, AccuWeather, heck even Joel Gratz from OpenSnow, predicted that Keystone, CO would receive Tuesday night. So when I wandered sleepily into the living room at 5:40 on Wednesday morning and peeked through the blinds, you can imagine my surprise when I was greeted by white-out conditions and four inches of snow caked onto my windshield. I did a quick happy dance (squealed, jumped around the living room, you know the drill…) turned on Eric and Kathy (yes, even mountain women such as myself enjoy little snapshots into former city-girl lives…) and then hustled to get ready for work.
My typical Wednesday consists of a marathon of meetings. They start at 8:00am and generally go on and off until about 3:00pm. I spend a lot of time driving across Keystone from one building to another. But this particular Wednesday?
This particular Wednesday, the snow never stopped falling. This particular Wednesday, the plows couldn’t keep up. This particular Wednesday, all my meetings were cancelled and I spent the day staring dreamily out my office window as 12 inches of snow drifted down towards Earth and piled up in fluffy pillows of white pow.
November, I’ve never been so happy to see you.
LET. IT. SNOW.
