February's record snow storm

This post is for our families and out of state friends who have been (appreciatively) concerned about this past snowfall.  Colorado has had much bigger snow storms than the one we had on the 2nd of February, it really wasn't a big deal.  The deal is...there hasn't been this much snowfall in FEBRUARY for the past 100 years, and that's what makes the headlines.  February is statistically our 6th snowiest month, with March being our first.  I am so glad that I cleaned up 75% of the garden beds last weekendWith the mid 50 temperatures we were occasionally reaching, I was concerned that the trees would start budding early.  Then the sky dropped about 18" in the Denver Metro area.
Patio pictures are so fun.  It's totally the opposite of what you expect to see.  This is our dining table for 6 months of the year.
The Grill Pit:  a smoker..a gas grill and a bench to linger..all out of commission for the moment.
This Blue Spruce is a beautiful backdrop for the fish pond.
Then you've just got to make the most of what you're dealt.. so relax and kick back.
Actually, here I am on "the beach" at A-Basin a few years ago.  Sorry, I couldn't resist.
