THE KINDNESS OF STRANGERS, and another winter storm

Another winter storm blew across Colorado yesterday, 5 hours early.  While the residents were scurrying around trying to stock up on essentials, the storm front moved in with a vengeance.  This motorist, a young mother, was trying frantically to reach her baby sitter's house to get her young children.  Dickidoo and 3 other passers-by pushed her little car several hundred yards uphill until the road evened out and she was able to get some traction.  Driving to work this morning wasn't too bad, but now there is a layer of ice an inch thick on all of the roads.  Dickidoo to the rescue again, he is driving me in tomorrow... he has chains on the Hemi.

Yucca is considered to be a desert plant, and I have some very unpleasant memories of it during my many hunting trips, but it sure makes a beautiful picture when covered in snow.  I jumped out of the Hemi while Dickidoo was helping to push the Mustang.  Note to self, never EVER go outside to take pictures during a snow storm while wearing slip on clogs. Brrrrrr!

That's right, you are in the middle of the blizzard! For some reason I didn't think about you being in CO till I saw the pics..... I think snow is beautiful... in pictures <g>.... I think I'll just stay here (it's 79 out right now) and enjoy the beauty of the snow vicariously thru your pics!! Stay warm!

Dickidoo has such a sweet spirit.  I fell in love with your whole family. They ask when we are going back to Colorado, although no one wants all of your snow!  It is 62 here today, unseasonably warm...we are heading down to our mountains again in a few days, which will be snow free...
