No snow in August


The first day of August and it is not snowing. That is a step in the right direction. Actually it is a beautiful day. We sometimes say that God does that on weekends for the tourists so they think it is like this all the time. In the winter we say the same thing because it seems as though it snows every Saturday and Sunday. Of course that is not true but it makes for a good legend.

I have two more weeks of the summer semester left. Then two weeks off and I start the fall semester. One thing that is really strange is that our college here has never had a winter semester. We go right from fall in December to spring in January. You would think that in a major ski area you would have a winter semester. Not us. That is OK. Because after nearly 40 years in Colorado I am ready for no winter.
