So, here in beautiful southern Colorado, we are in the middle of a raging blizzard...and oh yeah, did I mention that we had school today? The wind is blowing 50+ miles per hour. We have received several inches of snow. I am here at school with the last five students in the middle school. The Colorado State Patrol has closed the highway, and they have escorted most teachers the 25 miles to the town they live in. The road to my home, 3 miles away, is drifted closed. My husband just texted and we are without power, and therefore, heat. Joy.
