The record goes down...and I need to stop blogging about weather!

Okay, for those of you following it....the old record of 63 consecutive days of snow cover....still stands. We fell 2 days short with 61 days. Then we got some lovely Colorado-style February weather with several days in the 60s this week! Woohoo! And then, of course, snow this weekend. And now: I will try not to blog about the weather anymore, because I think that's all I've been doing!

Unfortunately, I think it is because I have been too busy to do much of interest to anyone else lately. Work, class, homework, grading, report cards. See, where's the fun in that? Things are busy as always with report cards and 2 class assignments due this week, and parent-teacher conferences 2 days next week but behold! There is fun on the horizon! After conferences next week, I have a 3-day weekend and Toni and I are going to Vegas with his cousin and cousin's wife! So that will be a very welcome break! I don't really know what we're doing as they are planning everything but sounds like we'll be VERY busy while there! They have never been to Las Vegas and want to see everything. In case I don't get back to update until then (quite likely), I will definitely do so after we get back!

Snow, snow, go away

Below is copied snow on the ground from one of the news websites-we are going for a record here. It snowed yesterday. It snowed today. It pretty much always snows now. It's tough at work because the kids can never play outside...oh yes a cold front came in today and it's below zero and WAY below zero with windchill....normally I just stay inside but tonight I had to take the light rail downtown for class! Boo! Anyway, that's all my whining, cause who wants to read a post of someone whining, especially if there aren't even any interesting pictures? Oh, speaking of...yesterday the radio said it was snowing when it woke me up so I looked outside. I couldn't even tell if it was snowing or had snowed because everything was all white as usual. Okay, the good news? Tomorrow is Friday! Yippee!

If you are interested in following the daily snow depth in Denver, we will be tracking it throughout the month of February. We have stopped the list at February 22, which would be the new all-time record if we can keep at least of one inch of snow on the ground each day. Should the snow remain on the ground after February 22, we will update our list and continue tracking the daily snow depth until the snow is gone.
