I'm going to post the aftermath in our yard. If you haven't heard any news, we have been in throes of a horrendous blizzard, one like we haven't had for the last 4 years. There are 4700 people stranded at the airport and it won't open again until Friday morning - optimistically, that is. They're going to try to bus the folks to downtown Denver today, at least - where will they stay when they get there? The hotels are full of the ones who were lucky enough to get out yesterday before the airport was totally inaccessible, in or out. It has stopped snowing at our house, but Denver is still getting some. Thankfully the wind has stopped.
I was home with the kiddoes when they finally closed the university, Anakin's school, my husband's work, my DIL's work, and everyone headed for home. It took Kristen an hour to get here, and my husband also. They usually take about 20 minutes. It got worse after that. Everything's closed today as well, but I'm wishing I was at work - I was going to be there all by myself in the office, be able to concentrate, and catch up on all the stuff that built up last week when I took that much-needed time off! I'm really paying for that nice week. Now I won't be back there until next Thursday because of my work schedule and the holiday closure on top of it. But the mail for that admission deadline will still be heading this way, building up somewhere until someone can deliver it to me! Yikes!!
The neighbor guys were having a blast last night with their snowmobiles with snowboards attached to the back - at least someone was having fun!
Well, Bing's been singing about that White Christmas about 30 times a day on the radio - here it is!
Cook those burgers and brats!
Watch the cooking - don't let them burn!
The wind-blown eaves
The wind kept some of the trees free of snow.
The eaves from the kitchen - rippled snow.
Right outside the back door.
