QUADRIVIUM

Have you come here to play Jesus to the lepers in your head?

Oh, the weather outside is frightful…

with one comment

People went to bed in Colorado on October 25, 1997 with maybe half an inch of snow on the ground outside. I remember waking up the next morning and opening the front door to find a snowdrift that reached over my head. A blizzard had passed through in the night, dumping 19 inches across the region, effectively shutting down most of the state for nearly two days.

There’s another blizzard blowing outside my window this morning, exactly nine years later. It’s not as bad as that one from before, but it has caused the closure of every school in the area, including my place of work.

So, we’re sequestered at home today, enjoying the show. There’s a pair of footprints trailing down the sidewalk where someone was walking their dog. No doubt they’ve returned indoors, as the storm appears to be getting worse.

I’ve got a pair of reviews I’d like to finish, so you may see those posted later today. We’ll have to see how the day goes.

I may opt to find a sled and take it to a tall hill instead.

  1. Oh how I miss the Colorado snows. Missouri is just getting rain. I hope you enjoy the blizzrd and how beautiful the mountains look right after the snow falls. It truly is a beautiful sight!
