Another reason I love Colorado Springs :)
When we moved here, I was terrified of all the snow - thought I'd be housebound for weeks at a time! nope! I didn't get the morning picture I wanted. On Thursday I woke up to swirling snow! all over the ground, coming down steady - could barely see. Then at around noon I went out and shot the bottom picture - see how the snow is still about 2" thick on the car? It was like that all over the yard and all. By 4 PM - top photo - it's almost all gone. Not ALL of our snow storms are like this, but in the 4+ years we've lived here, this is typical :) Snowstorm in the AM - Sunshine in the PM - wow.
