This woman of many words doesn't have much to say today.
We're having a heat wave - not really a tropical heat wave, but a Colorado winter weird heat wave. It's nice and sunny, going to the 60s today and higher tomorrow. The snow is gone.
Somebody sent me this in an e-mail the other day and I thought it would be fun to pass it on - but right now, You know you're from Colorado if - it turns into spring for a few days in the middle of winter!
You know you're from Colorado if . . .
. . . you'll eat ice cream in the winter.
. . . it snows 5 inches and you don't expect school to be canceled.
. . . you'll wear flip flops every day of the year, regardless of temperature.
. . . you have no accent at all, but can hear other people's. And then you make fun of them
. . . 'humid' is over 25%.
. . . you say 'the interstate' and everybody knows which one.
. . . you think that May is a totally normal month for a blizzard.
. . . you buy your flowers to set out on Mother's day, but try and hold off planting them until just before Father's day.
. . . you grew up planning your Halloween costumes around your coat.
. . . you know what the Continental Divide is.
. . . you went to Casa Bonita as a kid, and as an adult (that’s only because the out of towners want to go!)
. . . you've gone off-roading in a vehicle that was never intended for such activities.
. . . you always know the elevation of where you are.
. . . you wake up to a beautiful, 80 degree day and you wonder if it's going to snow tomorrow.
. . . you don't care that some company renamed it, the Broncos still play at Mile High Stadium.
. . . every movie theater has military and student discounts.
. . . everybody wears jeans to church.(Edit: Well, not everyone!)

. . . you know you're talking to a fellow Coloradoan when they call it Elitches, not Six Flags.
. . . a bear on your front porch doesn't bother you (well, maybe not this one).
. . . your two favorite teams are the Broncos and whoever is beating the crap out of the Raiders.
. . . people out East tell you they have mountains in their state too, you just laugh.
. . . you go anywhere else on the planet and the air feels 'sticky' and you notice the sky is no longer blue.
There's a fun thing going around - go to your picture file, go to the 5th folder, share the 5th picture. Kristen is going to love this one:
