Crazy, snowy weather . . . and Springtime in Colorado

Last week, the weather gurus were gearing up for a huge spring snow storm. A serious snow storm. Predictions of up to 24" on the front range (that's where we live). The mountains were predicted several feet.

The storm lasted from Friday morning through Saturday, early evening.

And after all was said and done and the rain began to shrink our snowy abundance, we ended up with about 18" of heavy, wet snow.

Within 3 days, the remnants of our storm were nowhere to be found. It is really quite amazing how being a mile high from sea level turns a winter wonderland into a sprouting, green terrain within a few days.
