Wordy Wednesday #433: It’s A Snow Day

It may be that way in some parts of the country but not here on Daisy Hill. While our friends and colleagues in the East Coast are recovering from a massive Winter Storm, the weather forecast for the Denver area is partially cloudy with high temperature in the low 70’s. That forecast, of course, ignores the fact that the two snowiest months in Colorado are March and April. The above photograph shows me digging Mary’s...

Wordy Wednesday #184 “Having a Snow Day”

It turns out there wasn’t much difference but I also predicted snow was coming and although I’m not a meteorologist, we had snow that night. By comparison, the Denver area gets 54 snow days a year, Miami get zero and the US average is 25 days. Well, tonight we have snow expected, about three to six inches worth for the...
