Snow Day! (somewhere else…)

It came across my Facebook feed early this morning. My alma mater, Colorado State University, is having a snow day today.  Today…near the end of March….after the official start of spring.  According to one friend’s Facebook memory, the school also had a snow day exactly three years ago today.  (Once again, the end of the March…after the official start of spring.)  Yesterday, it was 72 degrees in Denver. The sun was shining.  The grass was growing. Kids were riding bikes.  Today, the airport  has cancelled all its flights, the schools are closed, and kids are building snowmen.  I’m “liking” pictures of friends who are shoveling snow and counting the inches (16 inches so far according to one post.)

I miss this wild unpredictability.  Sort of.  But when people talk about the craziness of Chicago weather, I want to laugh.  Because, frankly, Chicago weather (and all it’s miserableness) is actually much more predictable than Denver in the spring.

    I live in Denver. We have had a foot of snow and it’s still coming down. Yikes!

    Wow, a snow day today? Who’d of thought…I know there have been Aprils where we’ve had snow-OIO-Only in Ohio! I didn’t realize Denver was so unpredictable.

    I remember a snow day in April here in Pennsylvania. It’s so weird when the weather doesn’t cooperate with my plans for spring! 🙂

    So funny! I love how you just laugh as we complain about Chicago weather!
