I have to agree with Anna...

9 months of fall and 3mos of winter sounds like a perfect year to me.

8" on Pikes tomorrow?

The National Weather Service in Pueblo issued on Tuesday the first winter storm watch for the pre-fall season, predicted to bury Pikes Peak in possibly eight inches of snow Wednesday night.

OK, I'll bite. Somehow all of my powder shots from last season are missing from my files. :-D Good thing 14ers are the name of the game.
