ah – Denver winters (going into Spring)!

Posted on

Remembering the Denver, Colorado snowstorms that occurred in March . . . and April . . . and even one Fourth of July!

But – oh I often miss those glorious mountains – and even the winters.  Good memories of good times.

Will Spring ever arrive??

Early Spring in Denver, Colorado

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!

thinking about Spring – in February

Some of the stores are displaying signs of spring – in February (with 49 of the states experiencing a snowy winter!).  However, today has a touch of Spring in the air – and it feels marvelous!

If we had no winter, the spring would not be so pleasant; if we did not sometimes taste of adversity, prosperity would not be so welcome.

remembering Denver winters – brrrrr!

There is so much I love about Denver.

The people.

The mountains.

The Arts.

The museums.

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!).

LoDo.

And more.

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.

Again, BUT,

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!
