Fall-ish In Denver...

As I sit here looking out the window at the beauty that Denver offers, I am feeling so connected and inspired. Earlier this week, we set a new record high temperature in the city, only to be followed by a sizable winter storm on Wednesday that dropped several inches of heavy, wet snow and crippled Denver for almost a day. Tree branches broke and smashed unsuspecting cars, and power lines snapped and left thousands of people without electricity for hours. There is a saying here - "if you don't like the weather, wait five minutes!" It is a laughable notion but one that proves true more often than not. The weather here is dynamic. It is moody. It gives us the best of the best and, every now and then, the worst of the worst. But without hardship, we wouldn't embrace success and the same goes for living in this great city. We are fortunate to live in a place that challenges us, and then rewards us so greatly.

The morning light earlier today, and even more so yesterday, was so brilliant bouncing off the fresh coat of white that I just stared in awe as I sipped my cup of coffee. I don't remember an early season snowstorm of this size in some time. I am sure it isn't the earliest or biggest on record, but the fact that even the trees and bushes weren't ready for it is a sign of it's untimeliness. In years past, Halloween is usually the day that the weather turns the corner from fall to winter. It was always so frustrating as a kid because it made trick-or-treating a burden instead of a blast. The ears and nose were turned to ice and we couldn't feel our fingers to open the candy we had just scored. But, as I said earlier, the sun is back and it's warmth is melting the snow so quickly that soon we will forget the storm even happened. We are now stronger and more prepared for the coming winter, and we will do our best to enjoy every little turn that Momma Nature has in store for us! Happy Halloween! Be safe, warm, and have fun!
