Just to make everybody else feel better....here in Mesa, Colorado (Grand Junction area) at 5,600 feet, it has been raining for a week and a half, and is currently 34 degrees. Our kitchen window looks out at the Grand Mesa and Powderhorn ski resort (9,800 feet). as of today, it is covered in snow. Not complaining or whining....but, damn I can't wait to head south. 2 more weeks !!!!
