Two Springs Forward, And One Spring Back

March Snow at 9600 Ft.

In Colorado, March weather is about as predictable as the personalities of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde.  Sure, we can cling to the notion that the month “comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb”, but in reality it hardly ever works exactly like that.  It seems that March always makes my head spin.

One week ago, Tammy and I were hiking through the canyons of S.E. Colorado.  Short sleeves, sunscreen and temperatures in the 80’s gave us the false notion that winter was over.  By Tuesday morning, two feet of fresh snow and temperatures in the teens found us scrambling for the winter clothing and the snow shovels.  Today is Saturday and we are expecting nothing but blue skies and temperatures in the mid 70’s.

All in All, it is the diversity in geography and the unpredictability of the weather that makes Colorado such a wonderful place to live.  Where else can you change your season, simply by changing your elevation?  Get out and embrace the contrast.
