Crestone, Colorado – Saturday Feb. 20, 2015
- So beautiful this evening: Venus (bright), Mars (above Venus) and the Moon together:
- Via my METEO page, I check on the local weather forecast.
Clouds moved in after midnight and if the forecast doesn’t miss the ball (like the other week when Crestone stayed dry but Salida got a foot of snow…), we’re finally in for an entire week of winter weather. Feels like it’s been a while. Except for the deep-freeze start in mid-November and the Christmas snow storm, it’s been a mild winter so far. Must be because the CO2 concentration in the Earth atmosphere went from 0.03 % to 0.04 % in 150 years… [sarc.] I’m welcoming this break from spring-like weather. Still relatively warm, but at least will get some SNOW! ;-D Always a good thing for our summer water situation as well. Can’t wait to go snow-shoeing again!
