I took the opportunity yesterday to volunteer to help the Sheriff’s office to burn some ditches near IBM in Boulder. We even burned right across diagonal. It was exhausting but good experience in fire behavior. In the middle of diagonal it even got exciting for a few minutes.
Got a wonderful snowstorm (and some not-so-welcome 9 F temperatures) in the early morning on November 21st just in time for Thanksgiving (American, we already celebrated the Canadian one in October in Montreal).
I left the garage door open yesterday for a few minutes while I was putting our recycling in the car (we do not have curb recycling – No curb!). This guy showed up (I reckon, around 6′-7′ long). Click here for the gallery.
Got the nastiest windstorm (gallery here) come through and sit on us all night on June 6. Up at Carter Lake, the top winds clocked were 101 MPH, but I think we might have beaten that wind speed (120 MPH from the top of Lee Hill).
At midnight, we saw that our arch over the stairway was gone, and the BBQ and deck chairs had collapsed the railing. The hot tub cover had been ripped off, and I had to go find it. We brought everything in. I slept with earplugs.
