The Blizzard of 2013
Since yesterday morning, Colorado Springs has been under a "Blizzard Warning". Maps on the local news stations showed that we would get anywhere from 6-14 inches of snow. That would be the most they've had since we moved here. We drove to Denver yesterday to do a little shopping and get out of the house before the "blizzard" hit. The whole way home we watched the sky... "It's coming!" we said.
Last night Kameron wanted to go have a sleepover with his two best friends and we said ok... but if the "blizzard" hit they would have to do the driving. His friends' dad is from Canada and he's used to snow. And we are... not. ;)
Kameron got safely to his friends' house (with no snow in sight) and the rest of us hunkered down for the "blizzard" as we watched the weatherman say, "It's COMING!" We went to bed expecting to wake up to snow piled high all around us. It was a little bit exciting actually.
We woke up this morning and ran to the window to find... flurries. Barely.
Granted, the snow is falling steadily now. It's pretty, but it's no blizzard. Denver, on the other hand is supposed to be getting close to 9 inches of snow and several of our dancers are stuck up there for another night. Maybe THEY are getting our blizzard. Maybe I don't know what a blizzard is supposed to look like... but I'm pretty sure it's not this!
Oh well, I'm still hoping it will be enough for a snow day tomorrow... At least the weatherman can give us that... right? ;)
