I've heard the following forecasts for Colorado today:
1) snow showers
2) 2-3 inches of snow
3) 12 inches of snow
4) 5-10 inches of snow
I wonder which it will be. It's not supposed to start until late afternoon-ish. And it's supposed to be worse out where we live than in Denver.
Should make for an interesting afternoon!
Update: No snow yet, but here's the latest forecast:
Cloudy with snow developing late this evening. Accumulations up to 2 inches. Lows in the mid teens to lower 20s. Chance of snow 70 percent after midnight.
Cloudy with a 70 percent chance of snow. Accumulations of 2 to 4 inches. Highs in the 20s.
Cloudy with a 60 percent chance of snow. Total snow accumulation of 5 to 10 inches possible. Lows 10 to 15. North winds 10 to 20 mph.
- became the 38th state on August 1, 1876
- 8th largest state in the union at 104,091 sq miles
- the past has left many attractions in Colorado such as the Anasazi settlements in Mesa Verde and the narrow gauge railroads like the one linking Durango to Silverton

Last night when Peri and I were taking our walk around the house, a fox darted past us. It was an amazing orange-y color. Mostly what I saw was the movement, color and tail. Peri totally missed it (and it didn't notice Peri).
I knew that we needed a covered run for him, but this just confirms it for me. I wish I could have gotten a better glimpse of the fox though.
On my drive home tonight I saw 4 antelope laying around in a field. They looked like they were enjoying the return of the sun.
I like living here. Seeing the wildlife always makes me smile. As long as it isn't in or near the road anyway.
Update: I was contacted about this entry today, so here's more info: The organization that did the study is National Policy Research Council.
According to a study conducted by the National Policy Research Council of Washington, D.C., Denver is ranked No. 1 and Colorado No. 2.
"Denver topped out the city list with an overall ranking of 389, followed by San Diego, Austin, Boston, Dallas/Fort Worth, Phoenix, San Francisco, Washington, D.C., New York City and Chicago."
Now, don't you want to move here? Don't all of you want to move here? ;)

Approximately 7 years ago, I picked up and moved to Colorado. I love it here. If for some reason I move away, I'll come back. (I don't foresee the need to move at any time.)
Now if I could get more of my friends and some of my family to move out here, life would be grand!
