Here In Colorado, We Swim In The Face Of Adversity. Adversity Being 18 Inches Of S To The NO.

posted by on 04/26/2010 | 210 comments (leave one of your own)

Hi friends. Did you know that I live in Colorado? And that we get the majority of our snowfall in March and April? Before moving here, I lived in California. California is the land of seven days a week sunshine and flip flops and where all your dreams come true. In California, they did not wake up to this last Friday LIKE I DID.

SERIOUSLY.  It's almost MAY.

You might be thinking, “That’s a crapload of snow”. And you would be right. It’s almost May; it is a ridiculous amount of snow.

s to the NO

Zoe’s school was canceled because of the weather and the kids were b-o-r-e-d. Zoe has a TV/DVD player in her room, so I set the kids up in there. I also mentioned to them that they were welcome to take a nap. They weren’t having it.

Once the 42 mph winds died down and it became obvious that no one besides me wanted to take a nap, I bundled everyone up and we went outside. I really like this photo of Troy because he looks very, very Asian here, don’t you think?

The children spent the majority of their time outside lying down screaming “SNOW AWFF!”, which is toddler for Snow Off, (Troy) and swimming (Zoe).

god help us

Troy is apparently not a fan of snow touching any of his skin or sticking to anything that he is wearing.


Sorry little buddy, you better get used to it. This isn’t California, this is Colorado. We have snow. You need to get on board with this, you are wearing a $18 beanie with matching coveralls. It’s not like we have to take a buggy into town during a blizzard for sugar and calico like the Ingalls.

Sink or swim, Troy. Obviously your sister has the right idea.
