We got back from Colorado (the Winter Park area) yesterday afternoon. It sure was a change exiting the airport to the moist eastern air after a week in the near-drought dry of the Rocky Mountains. I gather we missed a “nice” heat wave here with highs in the 90s and high humidity (we recorded 92 degrees here on the 20th and 21st with dewpoints of 75 degrees both days). Can’t say that I’m sad we missed that as it’s certainly not my favorite kind of weather. By contrast, the Rockies were dry dry dry and the family was struck with how much water we needed to drink and how much skin moisturizer we needed to use every day. It was certainly lovely though, and Rocky Mountain National Park was a real treat! Still, it’s good to be back home, and we even brought back some cooler weather for you!
