First Snow Storm 10/26/2011

Our first winter snow in our new house came by 10/26. Since I had one conference call, I decided to work from home. I am glad I did, as the campus was a mess with trees' branches falling down everywhere. Poor trees.


These are some young ornamental trees we have in our back yard. The wet snow and the fact that we have had such a delayed fall, meant that the trees were bowed with the weight of the snow.

Kevin went out and gently shook the snow off the trees to try and avoid too much damage. In our neighborhood we were more worried about saving our young trees from too much damage. Elsewhere in Fort Collins, large mature trees lost their limbs, hitting homes and cars and leaving debris everywhere.


Kevin was in charge of saving the trees...

I spotted this dove outside our bedroom taking shelter from the storm.
