Warm Weather Winged Wonders

February 3rd, 2024

  I hear rumors that https://www.aboutboulder.com is getting more than a little snow. Although it is only 44 deg here in the AM, it is not snowing in Central Florida. A ride through the bird and alligator sanctuary in Mt. Dora was one photo op after another. As usual, most were “del now!” but a couple do have me smiling, and I hope they do the same for you. We watched ducks and coots all morning, and had  duck for dinner. It was store-bought! Here are a lot of pictures and few words. Pic Lenworth     Pic Lensworth     Teaser, Pic Lensworth    Read More

Forecasting Boulder’s Winter: Lenworth’s Chilling Revelation

January 14th, 2024

Boulderites KNOW that only fools and tourists predict Boulder weather. That used to be true. I believe or at least strongly suspect that the extreme weather we’ve been seeing worldwide is the result in most significant part of climate change. Floods, rains, high temps, low temps, snow amounts, glaciers melting, and on and on. Short term or long term the current trend is beyond question getting more extreme. Our own NCAR and NOAA are at the heart of study of weather and of course more. NO surprise that both are in Boulder. NCAR is an architectural gem in Boulder, and is featured in Woody... Read More

Boulder Friday Friendly Sunrise

January 12th, 2024

For many of us, Friday sunrise is a waking of weekend anticipation. Skis are waxed, camera lenses cleaned, layer laid out,                                                    Lensworth And with some fortitude and luck, we get to see a sunrise also. There have been days when I was on the slope, at the top, for “first snow.” Momma said there’d be days like this, but she did not tell me I’d be invited. It is said that the first step is the hardest. The first step is only the hardest when that step is from a generally warm tent... Read More

Get Outside!

January 13th, 2017

Photo Credit: report.az Can you believe the warm weather we’ve been having?! It seems like we were in winter, skipped spring and just jumped to summer. If you’re used to living in Boulder, you know that around this time of year the warm weather isn’t that unusual. It also wouldn’t be unusual if it was 80 degrees one day and then a blizzard the next day. I’m happy that I don’t live on the East Coast because it’s getting a couple feet of snow and now that we are closer to summer, that just sounds brutal. We’ve been blessed with a mild winter this year; of course we do live in Colorado... Read More

Why You Should Expect the Unexpected this Winter in Boulder

November 12th, 2014

It was around noon on Monday, November 10th when snow blanketed Boulder. This frigid snow blanket, which coated Boulder after a morning high of 66° F, took many residents by surprise. Walking around campus showcased students wearing shorts and T-shirts, reflecting how many people were unprepared for such sudden change in weather. I too, was once unprepared for this sort of weather pattern. I never made that mistake again. I’ve lived in Colorado my entire life, which means I should be fairly accustomed to Colorado’s sudden changes in weather. When I was a freshman at Colorado... Read More
