  • well for the south central part of colorado, known as the san luis valley, I can tell you its colder than a well digger's _ _ _! last week the ground temp was -25. and the wind chill brought it down to -45! I even had to put on a jacket to go outside! this is the sangre de christo mountain region, not really to much snow this year. most of the elk are in the valley which is 7,500 feet saw a heard of about 300/350 just north of moffat, which lays claim to sitting on the 38th paralle. which some of you can remember from korea i'll bet. well have to go feed the horse's and other critters, will be back with another update soon

    That'll Be the Day!

  • We are about to have a big mess tonight. We are expecting ice tonight as much as a half of inch of ice. Maybe a little snow but it will be dreadful. Hope we don't lose power. I have an important date tomorrow night and don't want to miss it. In the 20's tonight and not much above 32 tomorrow.

    Cheers :cool:

  • Haven't been out of the house for two days due to extremely treacherous roads covered in snow and ice -- that includes the driveway of my townhouse complex. Office has been closed for two days and will be closed tomorrow. I can't say I object to the holiday. ;)

    Sharon,
    Like many, I am seeing the devastation that you are facing,
    and just cannot believe it.
    We all seem to be living in troubled and worrying weather patterns.
    I trust you and Alec are safe and sound.

    Best Wishes

  • what caused all this trouble is it is our wet season, wetter than normal, we had a cat1 cyclone cross the coast which caused a depression (lots of rain) the ground was so wet that it could not take any more so it ran off. to top it of we had high tides, and the freek rain storm in the ranges which caused the damage in towoomba and down the lockyer valley. they also had to release water from the dams as they were nearing 200% which is as much as they can take.

    alec and i are fine we got an alert to get ready to leave , but luck would have it it stopped raining so we didnt have to leave our home we were lucky not like some.

    cheers smokey
    ps we lost power at work and had to throw out all our meats from the butcher and deli sections, all the goods from bakery and dairy as well thousands of dollars of goods went to the dump as the generator wasnt able to keep the fridges and freezers going
