This morning I awoke to a "Colorado Blue Sky Day," that can only be described as magnificent. Not a cloud in the sky. Cool, crisp air. I thought about how lucky I am to live here — and then I began making a short list of why . . . 

I never get over the views - no matter what the season.

There are no lines for movies.

There is no pollution.

Just as we began to think that it wouldn't snow again - it did. Not in feet, but in inches — and just enough to powder the slopes for spring skiing. And with so many celebrating Easter and on vacation, it came just in time.
