I took this picture a year ago after Durango got a HUGE snow storm. I see this now and just laugh at how much snow we had and how much we have now. Last winter pretty much seemed typically to me, after living near Aspen for so long I am used to it being really cold and snowy in January. But these past few weeks here have been more like March or even April for me. Today it was 56 outside and very sunny. It's been like this for the past couple of weeks, and its great too with the snow melting off really quickly. Everyday it has been getting warmer and the roads are almost bone dry. Although the forecast says we should be getting more snow soon, I really hope this weather stays. I love the sun and the warmth way too much.
But I guess a spring like Snowdown would be kind of weird. This year's theme is "In Da Nile" and looks even better than last years. I can easily say that Snowdown 2008 was one of my most favorite moments of the year. With the Hot Wing eating contest, and Trevor almost wining the roller races, and so many other events I know its going to be awesome. The only let down is that I didn't get to enter the beard growing contest in time. Oh well, there is always next year. Hopefully, if it does snow, it will not be too much, because this weather is to awesome to see go. Well I am off, got another day at RGP's and then back on the bike! Enjoy your January!
