“A Foot, and Still Falling!”


Description from Cotopaxi Chickie Sue: Help! It's been coming down since yesterday, and I have to drive to the Springs and catch a plane to Houston tomorrow! It took me 20 minutes to make this pick, because I'm on satellite, and the clouds are really socked in! My computer is SO slow right now!

    Sue, this pick is beautiful, even if it does represent 12+ inches of snow on your beautiful mountaintop! Please drive & fly carefully (know you will, girlfriend!) and know that we’ll all miss you!

    Tell Bob, Bandit, & Misha not to party TOO hearty while you’re away…..ROTFLMAO

    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    Mary Lou & Sue — We need to tell Mr. Steve that he just can not do this to us!!! We may be forced to get together anyway…..LOL…..and shop without him & his lovelies! ;)

    Cotopaxi Chickie Sue says:

    OK ladies, latest weather update – clear blue sky and 42 degrees. Once I got off the mtn, there was virtually no snow in the Lorrie and Cheeky, I couldn’t do any donuts, but I was a little Susio Andretti through the canyon…

    OK, getting on the plane now! Later!

    Whew! Love this pick!!!! And glad I found it AFTER the last post so I knew you were safe. My stomach was in knots for you before that. Quite a snow, huh? We only got about 8 inches here. A ton of it melted today and yesterday!

    A pretty pick, but I’m not ready for a non-beaded winter wonderland. A cold-front has chased our spring-like weekend away, and they tell us to expect cold rain, turning into snow later this week. Mom was in town tonight, so we went out for tea and pie, and by the time we left the coffeehouse it was dang cold out there.

    So Sue – it took you 20 minutes to create this and it just took me 20 minutes to read all the comments. So glad you got off the mountain safely.

    Ok, so check off ever living on the mountains right? And you can keep all that beautiful snow Chickie Sue. Just send us pictures. My husband would absolutely love to live in the mountains. UGH!

    Steph says:

    So many comments on this one I didn’t think there was room. I hope you made it first of all. Second I don’t want to see any snow here at all. I’m just not in the mood, I had enough of the leaves I don’t want to think about shoveling snow. I like the summer when I can push the sand around with my feet and relax and drink my drink. AHHHH….. If life could always be so easy. I want to just cry sometimes, I wish I could be one of my dogs sometimes. Is that bad??? Oh boy!! They have the life.
