The vernal equinox is upon us and it sure is nice having equal amounts of daylight after a long winter of dark and cold.  If you’ve checked out the current weather in the upper Roaring Fork Valley surely you’ll know that it’s been nothing but abundant sunshine and temps in the 50’sF the entire week […]

While the rest of the nation is being inundated with the wrath of more wintery weather and frigid temperatures, here in the central Rockies it’s full on spring weather.  And I mean spring!  Endless azure skies, bright sunshine and temps in town hovering in the mid 50’sF by mid afternoon!  If it gets any warmer, […]
