Rime of the Christmas Traveler

Spent twelve hours in various airports across two timezones Xmas day, arriving at 11:30pm Colorado time. They lost our luggage though and it took a day to get back. The rest of the week has been a blur of meeting Scott's family and friends, sightseeing, etc.

The Colorado mountains are amazing and I would love to come back in summer to see more of them. When it's been clear (a few hours on Tuesday) it's been amazing how far in the distance you can see. Lately you can see the mountains ending in the cold smush of snowclouds.

I also deeply covet a prairie dog and a pika. Those animals are beyond cute.

I was supposed to fly out to Atlanta this morning for a couple days in Georgia but no such luck; right now I'm supposed to be flying to DC tomorrow morning if the second wave of the snowstorm allows. Mom plans to come to visit me next week instead. Right now I am so sick of travel.

Scott's leaving to go on his ski trip in a couple hours and I'm trying not to fret. I told him I'm behaving this time but now he has fifty years of nagging to look forward to.

Wish me luck!

I was thinking about you two. I hope that you are ok, and that you get home safe! Hopefully, you took some pictures of that beautiful snow we saw here on T.V.!

Thanks for the thoughts--they worked! We took several pictures of us and family but I don't think we took any of just landscapes--a lot of the time the weather was just too icky. But I have never seen that much snow in my life! Piles of it everywhere!!!!!!
