I enjoy my daily afternoon walks, especially on days like this. The weekend snow has almost disappeared. Trees are blossoming and flowers turning their heads towards the sun. The end of winter is in sight. If only we could wash COVID away with the snow. So tired of it. I heard there were a couple of cases in our village today, I hope they’re not serious. I really want life to be normal again.
Can you remember what a normal life was like?
Stay safe everyone, and let’s look forward to spring.

Pikes Peak – Dressed for a Wedding


Pikes Peak was showing off this morning when I got up. All dressed up and magnificent.

Evening Storms

It’s Spring in the Rockies and another evening storm rolls in. The long hot days of summer will be here soon, and we will remember the refreshing drenching spring storms, and wish they were back.

Knots in my Stomach and Funnel Clouds

After the rain.

After the rain.

I woke up this morning with my stomach tied in knots, which was a little alarming because it usually means something is about to happen. I lay in bed hoping and praying that my family were safe before taking some deep breaths and getting out of bed. It was awfully dark for 6am in late May. I peered through the blinds. Had I been transported to another State? Colorado mornings were almost always sunny, what happened? It was also very humid, which isn’t normal for Colorado. I switched on the local news and started my morning routine. The bubbly blonde weather lady was way too cheerful as she told us we could expect rain, egg sized hail and tornadoes later in the day!

She was right, I watched funnel clouds form this afternoon, luckily the ones close to my office never picked up any strength. It was exciting to watch though. Five tornadoes touched down in Colorado today, no major damage, just Mother Nature reminding us what she could do. This evening I enjoyed a beautiful sunset, but to the east I see another storm cell forming. It may be a colorful noisy night.

Spring is Coming

How do I know? The crazy woodpecker is hammering away on my metal chimney with its beak. When I hear that noise (which must give the poor bird an awful headache), I know spring is just around the corner. It gives me itchy feet, I want to plan a vacation. There will be no vacation for me until after June. I have a wedding to plan for my one and only daughter. Exciting times Instead I look back to last year, and the wonderful seascapes in Mexico.  DSC01281
