Colorado Adventure


We are back from Colorado and let me tell you, the trip was awesome. But getting to Colorado was far from awesome. See the east coast was prepping for a massive blizzard that was to hit the day we had scheduled to leave. Our departing flight was pre-canceled, that meant I had to spend hours on the phone scheduling a new flight to leave that night before the storm came. I rushed home from work to prepare for our flight on Tuesday night only to find out our back-up flight was then canceled. I couldn't believe flights were being canceled when the sun was shining and the skies around us were blue. Craziness I tell you! Thankfully we did leave early on Wednesday (the day of the "blizzard") and had no trouble after that but the thought of possibly missing out on our trip due to some flurries had me stressed out!

How much snow did Central Pennsylvania get? A light coating here and in some places I've heard received up to 4 inches. That's not a blizzard. Talk about over reacting weather forecasters! The surrounding airports were canceling all flights for Wednesday because the blizzard was coming and most places got only rain. Grrrr. Okay, the bitching about over reactions to weather forecasts will be left to another day.

More Colorado vacation gushing to come.
