As expected, I woke up today to a blanket of white.

All this will equal to a glass of red wine tonight- sitting here:

    I would love a glass of wine in front of the fire while all cuddled in from snow and mountains. It's moments like that that I really miss Alaska no matter how fond of Kansas I've become.

    Eww. I'm so not a fan of snow and being cold. It's pretty though. I am also so very jealous of your beautiful new home! A fire sounds wonderful right now.

    I've lived here almost 32 years and have seen it snow once. The snow didn't make it to the ground. It does occasionally snow on the hills in the middle of winter.

    It's supposed to be 72 today. Sometimes it's downright hot at Halloween.

    I can't get a pic up unfortunately....but I have snow too! We've got about 6" at my house and maybe about 3"-4" downtown Denver this morning. Apparently it's supposed to continue until about 6pm, but it already seems to be letting up.

    Welcome to our beautiful Colorado winter weather Lunar!!!

    I can imagine no matter how cold you are, you'd still get thirsty from walking house to house! We always love going to the houses that give out drinks instead.

    And yeah, my view is pretty sweet. My office walls are actually 3 sets of french doors, so it's pretty freakin awesome. My desk is a complete mess otherwise I'd PIP the office :-)

    The high today is somewhere around 85. This is the view from my window:


    Winter in AZ is basically January. Luckily I'll be in NYC in December and Rochester in January so there's a pretty good chance that I'll see snow this year.

    Yes. I consider November - March (sometimes even April really) to be winter in CO. We always have a huge drop in temperature right around Halloween. I remember as a kid always having to wear a heavy coat out trick-or-treating and being so bummed that no one could see my costume. I was an ice skater one year and all people say was a kid in a snow suit carrying skates! Costume fail. boo...

    It looks like typical Texas... warm and blah. :)

    It looks BEAUTIFUL in CO though! I wish we had snow!

    Also- shouldn't every night end with a glass of red wine?? ;)

    We're pushing 7 inches here, I think. Maybe 8. I haven't been out - not allowed outside in the snow on my crutches (I'm kind of a klutz - that's how I got the crutches) but my dog says about 7.

    It was raining in Vancouver today but all of the local mountains received snow.  I'm excited for the ski season but also gloomy since I get cold really easily. So I does not like winter.
