Meteorological magic

I love the weather here in Colorado. The high today was 65 degrees, which occurred sometime shortly after noon. At about 3:30pm, a storm rolled in. While friends and I, including one of our professors, were hiking in a canyon on the west side of town, clouds engulfed Pikes Peak. On our drive back to the Institute, the clouds parted, and I was the first to notice, and had the pleasure of bringing others' attention to a significant dusting of snow on the mountains. It was a glorious sight to behold. The storm moved off the mountain in a few hours, leaving us with a beautiful sunset. For now, my verbal bumblings and your own imagination will have to suffice in producing a picture of the beautiful scene that we all beheld this evening.

With the cool weather we've been having, the aspens should be turning soon...

Welcome to the world of "blogging"...

I'll be in CO next week as I travel to the regional meeting in Laramie. Interested in seeing a Rockies game next Saturday? Let me know.
