Winter is Here in Highlands Ranch CO

Originally posted on my Real Estate in Denver & The Suburbs Blog - Highlands Ranch Winter Week

What a week.  First we had our Below Zero spell. 

Yesterday I heard pretty last minute there was a chance of an inch or so of snow, yet it seemed to start snowing very quickly after lunch and didn't ever really stop.   I had to travel north into Englewood and Denver last night, roads north of County Line Rd didn't seem too bad, but Douglas County was far icier it seemed.  When I returned home a bit after 9 it seemed, there weren't many cars on the road but the snow seemed to be tapering off.  I though I had maybe 4 inches on my deck.  Weather report said snow moving out, some more tomorrow. 

Did that snow tomorrow, now today, arrive early or did it just never stop?

Flash forward to this morning, about 8 inches on the deck and it is snowing, although the sky does seem to be lightening up right now a bit.

It sounds like the south metro suburbs did get more snow than downtown, one news website say 1.2 inches of accumulation in Denver from Saturday.  Not over here.  And if you are not familiar with the Denver area, Highlands Ranch is about 12 miles from downtown.  Weather can vary differently in Denver depending on where you are.

My dog loves the snow.  I braved the elements this morning and took him on his daily loop around Redstone Park.  It is so much a routine for him that he is heading out after his breakfast and he is even more excited when he sees the snow.  There is really now saying no.  Just wants to roll in it for hours it seems.

I do not share his enthusiasm, while I do enjoy watching him enjoy it.  I am feeling done with the snow.  I know, its been very easy here until this week.  But I have been stuck in a frozen elevator in a parking garage, have had issues with the cold at the house and a few other minor details.  Ready for spring here.

The weather forecast says more Monday and Tuesday.  Sounds like we are playing catch up with the rest of the country this week.

I'm bringing my slippers to our Superbowl Party.
