  1. Yup, my BFF in Denver told me – and now we’ve changed our plans to drive from Toronto to Vegas across the I40 (southern states) versus the planned I80, and visit with her in Denver for a day or two. 😦 Stupid snow.

    1. Oh, bummer. I’m sure your friend is disappointed, too.

      This snow, I think, has changed a lot of plans, especially Mother’s Day plans. Still, I hope you have a wonderful trip and hit a BIG jackpot in Vegas. That would be great compensation for the inconvenience I would think.

      1. Oh, it’s not THAT type of trip. 🙂
        We have our second home there. The appeal was the mountains (hiking). Neither if us is much of a gambler. Probably best that way if you spend 50% of your time there. 😉

        1. Oh, for sure, Nancy. Now I understand. I’m not a gambler myself so I totally agree with you.

          I’m sorry you won’t be able to hike the mountains, although many paths are still inaccessible after last September’s flood and this spring’s run-off. Already some of the rivers are near flood stage after this current wet snow and there are major concerns about the spring run-off causing even bigger problems. Perhaps a fall hike might work better than right now anyway.

          1. I’m sorry I’m not being clear. 🙂
            We bought the place in Vegas because we are surrounded by mountains. 🙂
            You haven’t been reading my blog very long – but if you search on the word “hiking” you’ll probably find a bunch of posts come up. 🙂
            I see lots of hiking starting for me next week! Can’t wait!

            1. NOW I understand, Nancy. I’ve just spent the most enjoyable 25 minutes reading your interesting, sometimes snarky, yet thoroughly enjoyable blog. You’ve had some amazing hikes and stories to tell.

              1. I just finished reading your post above. Wow! Interesting indeed. And the view? From the photos, such gorgeous vistas. Well worth the extra effort, right?

    1. I hope it’s only the 80’s and then stays there and no higher for the rest of the summer. 🙂

      I don’t think I’d make a very good Florida girl with the heat and humidity. It makes me a tad cranky.

    1. For sure, Jim, it’s a Colorado spring. It’s supposed to be 87 degrees this Friday. Gotta love it. It’s never boring. Thanks for the visit and comment. Hope to “see”you again.
