Wait a Minute
We went up to the property last weekend. It was the first official weekend up there as a family and D would have had preferred it a month ago if he could have made it possible. I was not so ready for the season of weekend warriors. As we drove up, I told him May was early for camping (not that swingin' equals real camping...). He disagreed, saying March was early but not May with a tone that implied it might as well be the middle of June. It was good to get away from Denver city. The mountains were quiet, so to speak, since it's still early in the season. The weather was nice though a little chill hung in the air. We went to visit the Harris clan at their campsite. Sunday afternoon, a storm moved in across the valley and by sunset we were in the mix of a thunderstorm that changed to hail that changed to snowfall. We woke up to this scene Monday morning. As they say, if you don't like the weather in Colorado wait a bit and it will change.
