It’s March, the month that promises spring while reminding us that winter is not yet done. Here in Colorado, the meteorologists are fond of asserting that March is typically our snowiest month. We actually wouldn’t mind if they didn’t repeat this fact every March, but they do. Then in April, they like to state for the record that April is typically Colorado’s second-snowiest month.
I opened the kitchen blinds yesterday morning and gasped at the beauty outside. Ever twig, every blade of grass and every branch had been frosted with snow, the sky was pure blue, and the morning sun was just hitting the trees.
Admittedly, I hadn’t been thrilled to see the snow start Tuesday night—but who could remain cranky about a spring snow that created such a gorgeous spectacle?
By afternoon, the snow was gone. Today, the high temperature is supposed to be 65 degrees.
Tomorrow, though, the forecast calls for more snow.
Because—lest we forget—March is typically our snowiest month.
