Blizzard in Denver 7:41 pm March 23, 2010

Yes, that’s Kokopelli bending over in front of a small birch tree.

Did you ever notice that some old Denver houses have the front porch enclosed only on the north side? That’s for storms like the one we are getting right now. It’s kind of a minor blizzard so far, but when it blows in hard from the north or northeast (it’s especially cool when it starts with thunder the way this one did), and it’s heavy with moisture, it sticks “to the side of the barn” and everything else, including the trees and wires. The roads immediately clog up and the drifting begins.

I love every kind of weather, mostly when I don’t have to go out in it except to take a picture or two. Sitting by the fireplace, checking on the snow from time to time, editing video of well-paid bureaucrats telling the irate people what they can and can’t talk about. (You’ll see what I mean in the next post.) What fun.
