Careful What You Wish For...
For those who live in snow zones, you know the drill. For those who envy us, be careful what you wish for. It's a regular in Colorado's high country; it makes periodic visits along the Front Range, in Denver, and points in every direction therefrom.
Periodically -- as noted with the above dates listed -- that periodic visit is memorable. And not all things memorable are things one is desirous of recalling the experience of.
I'm aware of a blogger who so eagerly anticipates a move from the sauna of Texas, to the occasional snowfields of Denver; for that person, and for all the others who envy us our snow, I provide this link to a real-life experience in the March 2003 snowstorm in Denver and points west. A storm that deposited in one location of Gilpin County (west of Denver and the county in which I work), 11 feet of snow over a 48 hour period.
Two coworkers saw property outbuildings and garages crushed under the weight of it.
Got snow? Moving here, you might just get it.
