5:30 pm and we're over 2 feet of snow. Lesser men were breaking out the snow blower in the whopping 6" in Longmont...

About a foot of snow and it's still coming down hard. In anticipation of the snow I traded days at Ben's preschool and he went yesterday. A good call as the weather yesterday was beautiful. Today is perfect for cuddling up with Ben and relaxing. I did shovel the drive this morning and my legs and energy are awesome. The only issue is a little tightness in my right sartorius muscle. Other than that I don't feel anything from yesterday.

WTF is a Sartorius?

Do you own a treadmill? You don't seem to mention ever running on one. It would probably help on a day like today, right?

That's alotasnow! I used to live in Woodland Park at 8,500', that's what we'd get in Oct. I must say I'm enjoying the NC fall, High of 65, low of 35. But I don't wake up to PP out my window any more... hhmmm?

Eric- The sartorius is the longest muscle in the human body and attaches at the iliac spine and tibia. It's one of the major muscles of the hip and quad muscle groups.
No treadmill. I had a chance to buy one cheap but I passed on it. Once in a great while I think it would be nice, but most of the time I don't think I would want one.

Rick- I'll shoot you a similar comment the next time a hurricane kicks weather your way :) I went through 5 major hurricanes when I lived in the Caribbean.

Wow. It's early for a total buried in snow episode.
Except maybe not for you out there in the mountains. The leaves are still falling here and it's fallish, yellow and cool.
Which means I may have to break my no running this week rule and get out there.
The wolf looks snuggley. Do they run away from you if you see them?

No, you're right. This much snow in October is rare. I live closer to the Continental Divide than I do Denver so we are getting about a foot more than the lower elevations. It's still coming down hard and should get close to 3 feet maybe. I love it.
The wolf hybrids don't run away, they follow silently in a pack.
