Land — by the Oceans passed.
Transport — by throe —
Peace — by its battles told —
Love, by Memorial Mold —
Birds, by the Snow.
The weather reports were predicting snow for Seguin today. I tell you: it is somewhat embarrassing to post the snapshots of the snow we received. I can remember digging out of snow in Farmington and Raton, New Mexico – and then of course, in Denver.
A different story here . . .
I’m sure I will bear some teasing from my Colorado, Oklahoma, New Mexico, New Jersey, and New York friends – not to mention those in Amarillo and Dallas. Have been thinking of you folks in those areas who are REALLY seeing winter.
AND – in Georgia and my brother in Tennessee (I know this gives you a chuckle!).
We have not had snow in Seguin, Texas (although other parts of Southwest Texas were hit with snowstorms this winter).
These snapshots were taken April 1967 when we moved from Houston to Denver. Hubby had been in Denver for a year before the kids and I arrived (waiting until the Houston house sold and it was the end of a school year). He wrote about the beautiful tulips that lined the walk of our new home. On the trip from Houston, we ran into snow from Amarillo until we arrived in Denver. Our beautiful tulips were frozen. Spring in Colorado!!
COME ON, SPRING!
There is so much I love about Denver.
The fantastic Denver Library!
The Tattered Cover – browsing through all of the books; a cup of coffee in the TC’s coffee shop.
Racine’s Restaurant (oh yes!).
It was so peaceful and lovely to be warm and cozy during a gentle snow.
BUT, I don’t miss shoveling the snow or driving on icy roads –
or dangerous snowstorms.
the marvelous things about Denver outweigh shoveling snow
and being very very cautious while driving on icy roads.
However, after living in Seguin, I certainly do notice the Mega-Traffic when we visit!
