A Spring Snowstorm

18 Apr

Pine Needles

Greetings from snowy Colorado! In addition to seriously icky weather, Michael contracted some sort of exotic illness while in Brazil which has kept us indoors since Friday. The combination of a sick husband and a fear of driving down the slick mountain roads myself has left me with eggs, toast, carrots and hummus. Michael’s diet of saltines and broth doesn’t really make for a really great post either!

Just to give you an idea about how our trip has been playing out, this is a picture of what it looked like when we arrived:


Here is what it looked like after the first day of snow:

Day 1

Here is what it looks like after the storm passed:


Meet our friendly neighborhood fox. Her name is Felie. We originally named her Felix, but then I discovered she was a girl so we changed it to Felie. I love her and I’m fairly certain she loves us. She also has a little baby fox named Marley, who is the cutest thing I’ve ever seen. Unfortunately I don’t have pictures of Marley. We chose Marley because we don’t know whether it’s a male or female.


This beautiful bird paid us a visit just before the storm.
