Where’d Spring Go?

Fresh Snow

Fresh Snow

A cold front has moved in and brought much-needed moisture but also cold temperatures. The rain began yesterday afternoon then became a mix of rain and snow. Some periods were just snow as you can see in the above image taken from my porch around 4:30 pm. All is well this morning as the snow accumulation was no more than a dusting. But now we live with the cold for the next 36 hours. I’m hoping the mountains received a lot more snow.

Storm’s a Coming

They are predicting rain and cold for the rest of the week. Took this image yesterday morning at the Transit Center on my way to coffee.

Typical Scene

The Bus Stop

The Bus Stop

This is a typical scene in most of the industrialized world. I find people are not aware of most things around them. I’m not sure they are aware of the Red-tailed Hawk sitting in the tree across the street. The song of the robins as they announce the rising sun. The chickadee making it’s two-tone high-low call. The squirrels chasing each other in the tree just behind them. Or the photographer taking their photograph. 🙂

Born With Love

Tulips on Campus

Tulips on Campus

“Love is what we are born with. Fear is what we learn. The spiritual journey is the unlearning of fear and prejudices and the acceptance of love back in our hearts. Love is the essential reality and our purpose on earth. To be consciously aware of it, to experience love in ourselves and others, is the meaning of life. Meaning does not lie in things. Meaning lies in us.” Marianne Williamson

Sunset

Sunset

Spring like weather is here. But, this is Colorado so snow can still make an appearance. Buds and blossoms are everywhere. Tulips are making their appearance on campus. Robins and chickadees are singing each morning, making the day start off on the right foot. And, at the end of this day will be a sunset, reminding me how good life is. Hope you have a great day!
