Old Man Winter is basically "right around the corner" for us. A week from today, our high will be 71, with an overnight low of 42. This will be some 25 degrees lower than temps we've been having. But, within a couple of days, we will be back up into the lower 80's. Our first snow of winter is a month and a half away. Usually by Halloween. Lots of newcomers to Colorado's Front Range love the summer outdoor activities that are here, but when the snow starts flying and temps take a big dip, many of them really wonder "what is going on?". That's because they have never actually lived in a winter/snow area before. And, driving up to a Ski Resort for a day, like in So. California, sure isn't the same as "living" in it.
