Are you familiar with the expression about weather and the month of March? Is it "In like a lion, out like a lamb" or "In like a lamb, out like a lion"?
Regardless, its the second version we're experiencing right this month as Easter approaches and the month winds down.
We got a pretty good amount of snow in the metro Denver area yesterday. It was blizzard conditions at times, with the snow being blown horizontally by the strong winds. We got perhaps a foot and half (more where it collected in drifts) in my neighborhood. I spent a good couple of hours with the snow blower just to clear my driveway! Heavy, wet, snow...not optimal for snow blowers.
Today we woke to clear and sunny skies, which led to go look for scenic sites before the snow melted. The roads were not very well cleared yet, the untouched stuff in the center of the lanes had hardened and made pave roads feel like rock-strewn trails at times.
Didn't find much in terms of good photo op spots:
After dinner, it was time to find a nice snow covered parking lot for the sunset. The sun had wiped out a lot of the snow on non-grassy surfaces so it was slim pickings to be found near my neighborhood.
Fiona update: I sent her existing old-style clutch perch and associated hardware to Bural who will modify them to accept the new URAL clutch cable. Once I get them back, hopefully I can get Fiona on the road and progress further into sorting her out.
