Snow day!

My son didn't have classes today. They got about a foot of snow so far and I think there is some more on the way. Since I grew up in Buffalo I told my son that those Coloradans are all a bunch of wimps! I am just kidding, but it is fun to say anyway.

I'm in Evergreen, so just about 15 min further west than he is. I was shocked that our school district and Denver were closed before it even started snowing last night. We've had zero snow days so far, so maybe they figured they should just use one up?

We've gotten maybe 12 inches so far, but they keep saying that there's a second wave that is going to hit. We'll see!

Evergreen, funny, I looked that place up before my son moved out there. The Rabbi from my old synagogue in Buffalo moved to a congregation in Evergreen. I didn't actually know him well because he became the Rabbi in Buffalo after I was an adult and far away from Buffalo. But I did meet him at my dad's funeral. It is a small world! Anyway, I have been keeping tabs on the snow totals and according to the weather channel you guys in Evergreen got a lot more than Golden. It said you guys had about 19 inches last time I checked. But according to them Golden got about 10 inches and the picture my son sent me looks like at least a foot. I think they were predicting that this storm would hit harder further to the east (east of I25) but in actuality it seems to have hit west of I25 worse. At least that is what it seems like when I check the snow totals.

Someone in Evergreen posted this to Facebook. We didn't get this much at our house, but we live in a weird little valley, so I think we got lucky and some passed over us. (To be fair, this guy looks like a baby...but that's still a lot of snow!)
