I remember that. California has been good to you and Barb.
Say hi.

you'll be interested to know that coloradoans, or at least the news contingent of the state, have officially lost their collective minds.

several days ago, between storms, (the 26th i think) there was a 16:00 news program ... i watched it for 32 minutes and all they said during this time was:

* we sure got a lot of snow.

* snow is dangerous.

* we may get more snow.

* if we get more snow, it will be dangerous.

* if you have chest pains while shoveling snow, take an aspirin and call 911. understand that they may not be able to get to you, or get you to a hospital.

* snow, generally speaking, is dangerous.

there was an extended segment from the mayor of denver saying that the storm caught the crews by surprise and that's why the airport was closed.

all i can think of, is imagining a mayor from san jose getting on t.v. after a 6.5 earthquake and saying, "the airport is closed because we weren't expecting an earthquake."

they also have gone out of their way to look for records that this snow very specifically applies to: "the last time we had a snow of this magnitude, followed by a rise in temperature of 20 degrees, follow by a snow of that magnitude was 1913."

there was absolutely no mention of any other news of any kind. none.

apparently what the state has collectively "forgotten" is:

* it snows in colorado. in fact, there are ski areas here. in fact, they brag about those ski areas.

* it can snow hard in colorado. it does every couple years.

* when it snows in colorado, things still happen in the rest of the world. in fact, the average person in the world doesn't give a damn about colorado.

* snow is apathetic toward humans.


now what is unusual is last night we had very high winds ... big winds with snow down is unusual (and much more wyoming than colorado) ... the drifting is wreaking havoc, 36 and 93 are both closed -- turns out that crossing 120mph with snow isn't such a great idea.

i've taken several hiptop shots that i'll send to your g account (one post-drifting) -- you're welcome to re-post them if you so desire.

{as an aside, a storm that's missing from the list you have is labor day of 1967. in lakewood we had 38" of snow in one night (you could bury a yardstick). because it was unseasonably early, it destroyed all the non-pines in this area -- an any tree of size in this part of denver isn't any older than 40 years for that reason. we spent the day jumping off the roof into the snow. in my entire 13 year jeffco school career, school got closed 4 times for snow -- this was the first (and the only time on the first day). this was, of course, in that dark time before we realized how truly dangerous snow was.}

new year, new hotv. pax.
