We’ve got seasons! Our first snowy winter and we LOVE IT!

1 Mike and Linda

2 Backyard 1 - Summer

Our backyard when we moved here in August

2 Backyard 2 - Fall Rain

Fall colors and a few rainy days

2 Backyard 4 - First Snow

Our first little dusting of snow in November

2 Backyard 5 - Covered in snow

February – Lots of snowfall

3 Driveway 1 - Summer

Our driveway (when we moved in)

3 Driveway 2 - Snow covered

Our driveway when we returned from spending the Holidays in California.  I’m with the car on the street waiting for Mike to get the snow blower going so he can clear the snow.  Unfortunately, it wouldn’t start, so he shoveled the whole thing.  He got the thing working the next day.

3 Icicles

The icicles are amazing.  Looks kind of scary as the huge layer of ice on the roof slides off.

4 My office 1 - Mike clears the path

Mike’s so sweet to shovel the walkway to my office building.  And it’s snowing again!

4 Save the satellite dish 2

Mike attempts to remove the snow from the patio roof before it takes out our satellite dish.  It was quite a job because so much of it is ice.

4 Spa Deck 1 - snow covered

Yikes!  The hot tub doesn’t look very inviting like this.

4 Spa Deck 2 - Linda clears snow

We’re going to need a nice soak in it after all this shoveling.  And it’s delightful!

5 sun comes out

Everything is so beautiful all covered in snow!

5 sun melts snow on trees

The sunshine melts the snow on the top branches and it creates a domino effect as it falls and knocks the snow from other branches.  This goes on all day and it’s so fun to watch.

7 Lucy 1 - Exploring backyard

Lucy had to learn how to live this new lifestyle, too.  When we moved here, she loved exploring her yard.

7 Lucy 2 - Patrolling

She patrols the fenced in area.

7 Lucy 3 - Gettin Busy

She’s wondering what the heck is going on as it snows on her while she is taking care of business.

7 Lucy 4 - helping clear the driveway

Lucy helps Mike clear the driveway.  She’s thinking that this isn’t so bad.

7 Lucy 5 - Snow path

Wait a minute!  What the heck?  Where’s my yard?

7 Lucy 6 - By the fireplace

I think I’ll just relax by the fire.  Thank you very much.

  1. Better keep a colorful scarf on Lucy…she almost disappears in the snow! It’s beautiful though and your house looks so cozy.

    • Thanks, Dawn. The beauty here is so calming. I love how peaceful it is. The years I spent on the boat and RV had many adrenaline moments which created some fun and amazing memories. But I have always relished the more Zen moments. This place really nourishes me. Wow, I’m getting pretty deep here! Ha ha ha!

  2. Wow, that is stunning! Being from South Mississippi we don’t have many seasons either. I’ve never been to Colorado but we are becoming full time RV’ers in October and are trying to decide where to go first! I really want to see Colorado but I am not sure if it will be too cold. Any suggestions!? 🙂

    • Congratulations on your plans to become full-timers! I do believe it will be too cold to head to Colorado in October. Wait till Spring or Summer to enjoy the absolute beauty of the State from an RV. Good luck to you! Enjoy your travels!
