62 Miles And 61 Degrees

At the CDOT weather station not far away on I25 it's a balmy 40* compared to what it's like 62 miles as the crow flies at Alamosa in the San Luis Valley at -21*. It's been brutally cold there but and it's just that way life is in that valley. Those are some tough souls who chose to live there past and present.

  1. I like winter over summer...but a minus 21 would change my mind.

    1. I don't want Death Valley temps but I like it warmer than colder. A couple years ago back in da boat it was -34 and my bud had -45 outside of town. That's scary to me.

      Just before I looked at your comment pushed the "DONE" button on the ticket to return to Costa Rica 1/7. Gonna try the warm and the green one more time.

    2. oooh good!!! You'll be glad you did that.

    3. Thanks TMoon!:) I hope so. I want sooo much to take pictures and a few other things too..

  2. That made me wrap my chilly fingers tighter around my warm cup of coffee and say a small "thank you" that I live in California. Hope you can survive the cold before you get back to Costa Rica.

    1. Nice to hear from you Jan.It's 52 here now and going up.Over in the valley it's a whopping 17.

      Happy Holidays and may 013 be the best ever.

  3. We are cold still...cold and snowing. SO I guess we are going to have a snowy Christmas Eve, for sure.

    29* But there isn't a huge amount of wind (more like a brisk breeze) so that helps.

    Merry Christmas!
