Hi there! And welcome to my blog today~
We had a bad snow storm on Monday and Tuesday; February 1st & 2nd in Colorado Springs, CO USA~
I finally got out and around to take some photo's; but these are from Friday Feb 5th.
And here it is, Feb 11th! and I'm just now posting~ *sigh* Lots of the snow has melted; but really, a majority of it is still here - probably till spring~
I apologize for the signs and wires in some of the pic's! but I could not find a place to park where they could be avoided. God has blessed us - as inconvenient as I know it was for so many - but we needed the moisture so badly! I am grateful for the 'melt' and the water that is now soaking into our land. We are semi-arid and always welcome snow or rain.
We often have beautiful blue skies like this! Isn't it so pretty!?
(in the photo above) - We are looking west. I work about a mile west from here; down in that valley~
Below is our beautiful Pikes Peak mountain -The Rocky Mountain range runs vertically through (basically) the western half Colorado. We have 52 mountain peaks that are over 14,000 feet!
Many people make it a mission in life to climb them all~ WHEW! (no, I haven't ; ) but some of my family, including my father, have climbed a good many of them.
