Oh yes, that beautiful snow falling gently to the ground and the moon shining on that same beautiful snow......what a sight! This can really get people into the "Christmas Spirit". And, seeing kids play in snow is really neat for parents and grandparents to see.
Now, the bad part that comes along with that stunningly beautiful snow falling and twinkling in the moonlight......the shoveling, driving and sliding all through that "white beauty"! The older folks, like us, can't do all that shoveling anymore, let alone driving in the slick stuff that much. So, yes, glistening snow is great to look at, but having to deal with it for some folks just isn't fun.

I think if that were going to happen, the forecast would have reflected it. Not that that can't happen here, but it's supposed to be dry later next week.

Yea, we remember a week in the Spring of 2007. It started snowing hard late on Monday evening, continued thru Tuesday and ended on Wednesday morning. Don't remember how many inches, but there was definitely wet snow on the roads. The warm weather pattern came in on Friday and that weekend the temps were in the upper 70's. We drove by Chatfield Reservior and there were numerous boats out on the water! The same for at Cherry Creek! The boat ramps had already been opened at Chatfield and Cherry Creek. That was some kind of week in weather! Winter then Spring/Summer all in one a 7-day period!

I'm sure there's something you can rely on a 3 day old diaper to be!

I used to be a huge fan of the weather channel until I moved to Colorado. Other places I live I used to watch it like a movie while doing other things. But they are rarely good for anything here in CO, besides a general idea of what the temperature will be... but only looking a day or two into the forecast, any farther and they it's not very reliable. I've come to find the local news tends to do a little bit better job.

My parents still watch the weather channel in Jersey and constantly call me and say things like: "Weather channel says you guys have some big storms on the way later tonight.".... my answer: "Well the forecast for Denver is 70 and sunny... but I think Summit County is getting snow." The weather channel apparently doesn't realize Denver isn't actually in the mountains.

My extended family in Nebraska used to do that, too. My MIL obsessed about every little flake. I remember one time in July when she said "It snowed in Denver"! I had to gently tell her, no, maybe in the mountains, but not in Denver. My family in Pennsylvania had less trouble believing that Denver's weather is very changeable, as so is Pittsburgh's!
