Snow day!

When I woke up this morning, the snow had started to accumulate on the street. It was probably only 2″ in depth or so, but the roads were pretty slick.

The office shut down around 1pm. By that time, I-70 east of Denver was closed, as was I-25 south of town. What amused us, though, was that the mall near us had already shut down. Given the importance of the Christmas shopping season to retailers, it’s not what we expected.

I ran a few errands on the way home – I topped off the gas in my car, and bought cat litter and a new snow shovel. I wanted to see if I could find a small one for the car, but I couldn’t. So I bought a new one for the house, and put my old one in the car.

Currently, the snow is 8″ to 11″ deep in my front yard. I can believe that if this runs into tomorrow afternoon, there’ll be two feet or more here. I may have to pull out my cross-country skis if I want to go anywhere in the next couple days. That would be good exercise, certainly. Maybe I’ll ski the local parks this afternoon.
