As is usually the case, the arrival of Spring is not a smooth process along the Front Range. We were teased this week with temps in the 70’s. However, this evening, snow is back in the forecast. Such is the nature of seasonal changes. Two steps forward and one step back. This stutter-step unfolding merely serves to intensive my itch for warmer temps, blue skies, green grass, and sunshine.
