This’ll probably make a mess of the roads (since it started earlier in the evening with drizzly rain); but for now, the snow is pretty.



Wolken und Nebel

Manchmal komme ich rüber Monument Pass und das Wetter ist komplett unterschiedlich. Wann ich der Nebel und die Wolken sehe, ich muss ein Foto machen. Na ja, ich versuche.

Fog in Greenland, CO

Sometimes I come over Monument Pass and the weather is completely different. When I see the fog and the clouds, I have to take a photo. Well, I try.

Monument Pass


Last Thursday some bad weather was rolling in as I drove to work. To get to Denver from Colorado Springs, you have to go over Monument Pass. The summit of Monument Pass is over 7300 ft (2225m) in elevation; the weather up there is often weird. It also sort of corrals weather to one side or the other.

Fog was rolling in as I crossed over the summit and the snow was blowing from the north, which gave that side of the trees a bit of frosting.

Ein Anderer Erster Schnee


Wie viele so genannt ‘ersten Schnee’ in Colorado sind da? Erste kam der Schnee auf Pikes Peak in August. Dann war der erster Hauptschnee auch auf Pikes Peak in Oktober. Gestern kam der ersten Schnee, dass auf mich schneite. Oder uns. Ich musste den Schnee abkratzen, dass auf die Autos war. Die Straßen waren schmalzig und eisig und nass.

How many so-called ‘first snow’ are there in Colorado? First came the snow on Pikes Peak in August. Than there was the first major snow, also on Pikes Peak in October. Yesterday the first snow that fell on me came. Or fell on us. I had to scrape off the snow from the cars. The streets were slushy and icy and wet.

Aber am Mittagessen war der Schnee weg und schien die Sonne. Es war immer noch kalt, natürlich; besonders mit der Wind. Die monochromatische Monate werden hier kurz sein.

But by lunch the snow was gone and the sun was shining. It was still cold, of course; especially in the wind. The monochromatic months will be here soon.
