I wanted to share a couple more pictures of Matt and I from the snow storm last week. These are in front of our house on Thursday. Most of Denver was shut down on Thursday as it was still snowing after receiving about 2 feet of snow.
We were a bit stir crazy from working at home (1 day for Matt and 2 days for me) so we decided to take a stroll around the neighborhood. We could definitely tell it was an early season (wet) snow as we had to step around floating ice bergs in all the water.
It finally stopped snowing on Thursday evening and we were able to return to work on Friday without too much trouble on the drive in.

Our first official Snow Storm

Well, we are officially in the middle of our first major snowstorm here in Denver.

This first picture is from about 11am this morning - We had about 8 inches of snow on the back porch.

This was taken about 1:30 this afternoon - I'd say about a foot of snow.
We always enjoy watching Matt's flamingo as it weathers the storm - As of 1:30 this afternoon he was still doing pretty good - Just a little snow covered.
Well, I'd say this evening, he is getting a bit chilly (especially the rear end_. This was taken about 4:30 this evening - I'd guess about 14 inches now.

The forecast is still calling for another 3 - 6 inches tonight and another 2 to 4 inches tomorrow until the storm warning is done at 6pm tomorrow.

We'll keep you updated on the plight of the poor flamingo...

Happy 4th of July

Hope everyone had a great 4th of July. We had a great long weekend up at the condo.

We had two fantastic nights of fireworks over beautiful Lake Dillon.

On Friday night, we enjoyed a short hike to the marina in Dillon and watched the great show over the amphitheatre. It was a bit crazy and we parked way on the edge of downtown Dillon. Matt planned to try his hand at photographing the fireworks so we choose a quiet bench to watch the display.

On Saturday night, we watched the fireworks that were from the marina in Frisco. As we were driving from the condo to Frisco, we spotted the scenic overlook on I-70 overlooking the lake. We saw a couple of spots and made the U turn at the Frisco exit. We arrived at the overlook about 7pm and found one of the last spots where we could back the truck up and enjoy our dinner of wine & cheese on the tailgate. Have I mentioned that we thought we would be rained out as it rained and was very windy for several hours in the afternoon. Needless to say, after the rain, it was very chilly and by the start of the fireworks at 9:30, we would be bundled up in multiple fleeces, winter hats and several blankets. We had a great view across the lake to the fireworks.

We spent Sunday photographing some columbines near Rainbow Lake in Frisco. I just got a new macro lens to help me photography photos up close (& personal). Here is one unsuspecting model.

Here are some awesome fireworks photos:

I've spent most of the day creating digital pictures of my 2005 Scrapbook pages. This is actually one album that I've completed so its nice to have a full backup of it electronically so that I can share it.

Blizzard of 2009

I wanted to share a few pictures from the backyard of the aftermath of the blizzard of 09!!!

This is how we opened the backdoor this morning... A foot of actual snow and a couple of feet of drifted snow on the back patio.

The snow fall was gorgeous (and much needed). Notice the beautiful blue skies that we had just one day after the storm where we could not see across the street.

Poor flamingo... We are guessing a massive amount of snow must of fell from the room on him!!

The start of the shoveling... Yep... Had to start from inside the house as we could not get out the back door.
Still shoveling.... Making some progress....

Wow... This is heavy snow...

I'm watching you!!!!

Back on Top of the World...
Or at least on top of the snow pile....
