Everything's Relative

Yesterday I overheard this conversation:

"I was rear ended in my Dad's SUV last week."

"What happened?"

"An older guy, in his late 30s, didn't stop for the stop sign at the corner..."

My Maple tree was never more beautiful than this autumn season. Too bad our first storm almost took it out.

Ah, Colorado weather

We had our first snow of the season on Sunday night, 12 inches! Unfortunately all the trees still have leaves. Do you know what happens when heavy, wet, snow falls on trees with leaves? (Oh, if you don't know, not all snow is heavy and wet.) Anyway, our trees lost branches and branches. One of the aspen trees lost the top 20 feet of the tree. I woke up during the night hearing popping noises, when I looked out the window I gasped so loudly that I woke my husband.
