Monday, first day of the week

Poudre River in Winter

Poudre River in Winter

Cloudy and overcast skies this morning. Looking and feeling like winter, probably because it is. A few snowflakes could be seen on my walk to the bus stop. I thought, sorry, there I go again thinking, I could add to the wintery mood if I converted this image to black and white. They, those weather guys, say we are only going to reach the low 20’s today. I’ve decided to NOT wear my sandals, so my biggest decision for the day has been made. I’m now at the Lory Student Center to read and write. Will meet a good friend for brunch later. Have a super Awesome week!

Every day, priests minutely examine the Law
And endlessly chant complicated sutras.
Before doing that, though, they should learn
How to read the love letters sent by the wind and rain,
The snow and moon.

Snowfall at the Arapahoe Bend Nature Area

I say good grief because we are at 46 degrees with light rain. Needless to say this image was also taken a few years back. Hope everyone enjoyed the Super Bowl and did not over indulge in chips and dips. Have a super Awesome week !

Lost Horizon

Fog and light snow at Lake Loveland

Fog and light snow at Lake Loveland

This image is from 2011 and was taken on the west side of Lake Loveland. The fog and light snow created a scene with seemingly no horizon. It is a simple image that I converted to black and white. Our weather forecast is for a 30% chance of light rain and snow both today and Monday. Right we’re at 17 degrees and overcast skies. Hope your having a great weekend.

Wall of Shadows

Shadows on Campus

Shadows on Campus

Colorado has cold and snow but it is also known for it’s sunny days, about 300 days of the year, and a great reason to live here. The past three days have been filled with clear blue skies and plenty of sunshine, along with cold temperatures. Winter is also the time of year for long shadows which allows for images such as this one. It was taken on campus near Morgan Library on Monday.
