I've heard about your snow, Betsy.  My son in Golden was having the
stucco replaced on his house when the first one hit.  That delayed the
process, but apparently a second one yesterday has caused much 
more delay.  He had hoped to have the work finished before winter
set in - hoping it woldn't interfere with his skiing - but now who knows
when he will be able to get it finished.

It sounds like the East really got a doozy. Here in Colorado we had 9.5"
of wet snow last Wednesday and it pretty well melted off by Saturday. It

was a wet and heavy one like yours Auralie, where the trees got bent. I
cannot believe that the Honeylocust and ash still have their leaves on.

I am currently visting my folks in Indiana and their Honeylocust and ash 
have no leaves..go figure.
I guess it snowed another 9" at the house yesterday...but it was a dry snow 
so Greg only needed a broom to remove it.

Stay Warm
