Ode to February in the Colorado Rockies at 9,000 ft.

Shovel out the chicken coop,
Shovel out the truck,
And shout it to the mountaintop,
Oh, W  T  F….!

(We declared victory and moved back to Cape Cod.)

    Hey, wait a minute. Come February, I’m pretty fed up with stoking the wood stove and only seeing white outside, but the rest of the year is wonderful and gardening is great. Just thought, I’d plug living at 7,500 feet all year round in WY.
