It Was A Dark And Snowy Day

Summit County, Colorado

It Was A Dark And Snowy Day.

We had a heavy snow warning on Saturday and it snowed less than two inches. Yesterday we had a heavy snow warning and it snowed less than one inch. If we keep this up we will soon go into a negative mode and have to give snow back rather than receive snow.

I have been doing a traffic survey of highway 9 past my house to determine the state of the economy in Summit County. By my count it seems as though we are doing just fine.

I have also been asking the same question of business owners and restaurant employees and they all say that it is a normal to up year so far. It we shaky in November but then it started to snow and things have been just fine.

I think it has a lot to do with being close to a major population center in Denver. The destination resorts are probably hurting be we are not. I know that the ski industry in Colorado was saying a week ago that we are down over seven per cent. I wonder who the we is? g
