If this post sounds weirder than usual, chalk it up to my waking up before 5:00am on Tuesday morn to discover that my dental surgery yesterday had caused me to forget to write my Tuesday Cozy Chicks Blog post on Monday night. :)
I'm presently in Northern Colorado as Cozy Chicks Blog readers would expect. But I will be traveling back to Northern Virginia very soon. Of course I'll be happy to see all my family and friends when I return there, but I hadn't intended to leave Colorado so soon this winter. Why am I returning earlier? That's an answer I had not expected to give. I'm leaving beautiful Northern Colorado because of the weather.
Is there more snow than usual? No, in fact a lot of us in Northern Colorado would love to see more. Has the sun hidden behind clouds and refused to shine like it usually does? Nope. Not at all. In fact we have our usual bright sunny days.
It's because the weather has had too many bright sunny days in my not-so-humble opinion. I know that sounds strange, but a lot of us here on the Front Range of Colorado (that's the invisible line that runs North to South from the Wyoming border almost to New Mexico) would love to see some more snow or rain. Our High Country and Mountain towns from 9000 feet up (like most of the resort towns) have regular snow. Tourists and visitors are having great times on our snowy mountain slopes, so that's good.
Maybe it's just me. I like to have lots of humidity around. I'm sure that comes from growing up and spending so many years of my life Back East in Northern Virginia. Lots of humidity there, that's for sure. So I'm definitely not used to what most people would call a "dry spell." I'm slathering on lotions every day, so that helps. Enjoy our beautiful sunny Winter, Everyone!
