Finally!! It snowed this week in Boulder! This year there has been a serious lack of snow both in Boulder and in the mountains. But this past weekend I was able to go up to Beaver Creek Resort to ski with some friends. The snow conditions were great, a lot of fresh from the night before, a bit of snow fall during the morning, and sun in the afternoon. Unfortunately, we did not plan very well and got stuck in the crazy Sunday afternoon traffic on I-70...for five hours! But the day was so good and we had good company so it was not nearly as bad as it could have been.
It also snowed in Boulder. I don't think anywhere is as beautiful as Boulder with fresh snow fall. The flatirons have a perfect white glow and look more like a painting than a real landscape. The streets feel calmer and quieter, and the campus is perfect. We did not get any days off from class but the walk to class was made much more enjoyable by the walk I almost forgot to stress out about all my tests.
