Crazy Colorado Weather!

The title of my blog is 320 Days of Sunshine, right? Well obviously we don't get sunshine EVERY day otherwise the title would be 365 Days of Sunshine (or 366 for this year). Yesterday was one of those sunless days.

Here is what we woke up to. 

Yes, that is a lot of snow. On May 7th. YUCK!

It was a really wet, sticky snow and a lot of it melted as soon as it landed but we probably had a good 8 inches that actually accumulated. It literally snowed all day long and when we went to bed it was still coming down.

Here is what it looked like outside when we woke up this morning. Still quite a bit there!

The great thing about Colorado though, is the ridiculously powerful sun! Now, less than 8 hours later, this is what it looks like outside! 


Yup, except for the shady parts, the snow is completely gone. 8 inches in less than 8 hours, gone! That is CRAZY! So yes it was a bummer that we had a snowstorm yesterday but honestly, we are grateful because we badly needed the moisture. And seriously, who can complain when it's such a gorgeous day today??? :) That, my friends, is why we love Colorado!
