snow, snow, snow


i do love snow, i really do. but i moved to denver, not for the snow, but for the warmer climate. how does it work that the midwest has better temperatures than we do this winter? and, we have had over 60 inches of snow this year already! our yearly average is 61.7 inches (which seems high) and mr. alamanac said that the past 10 years have all been below average except 2003 and 1997 when we were blasted by big snows.

so we are on for a record year... and i am sorry to say that i am getting a little tired of it.

now, don't get me wrong, i love the snow, i love the ski, i love the white. but, we have mountains for that! oh well, enough complaining... i guess i should pour myself a cup of hot chocolate and enjoy the blizzard. i can see about 100 kids sledding across the street, which is cool. they even closed schools today (bunch of wussies) so all the kids are running around in their snow gear. fun times.

the only issue i have with all this snow is that i can not get out as much and enjoy denver. things are soo snowy that walking is difficult and all the sidewalks are covered and icey so we have to walk on the street. more time at home i guess.

once we get back in the 50's, and sunny, like usual for this time of year, i will be back on track.

gotta get back to work.

hej! i wish we had 1 inch of snow in poland and i wish mr kret could say it's going to snow soon. no snow whatsoever this winter. schools are open;( will be clozed in 2 weeks's time cuz of winter break;-)) so far black sidewalks, green tress, spring flawers all around and plus temperatures in the middle of winter. storks have stayed this year here neglecting their foreign countries trips (misled by warm temp)-poor birdssssss. febluary may be surprising for them......enough complaining-hope we can go skiing to szczyrk this winter anyway

Eric! Seems you haven't visited your own blog in a while- I'm hoping you get your comments emailed to you. ANYWAY- Kate and I are due for our 3rd this summer (July/Aug) and we moving to Milwaukee (from Chicago). Hope all is well in your parts.
