My grandsons first day back at school on a chilly wet Denver morning with snow in the forecast.
As often is the case, the weather guessers shuffled around their weather guesstimations a little bit and moved our snow event forward from this morning to this afternoon. I know they do the best they can, and predicting the weather in a mountainous area is extremely difficult. It can vary from mountainside to mountainside, so I suppose we're lucky to have anyone that will even try to predict the weather around here.
It got pretty chilly last night but didn't get down below freezing. That blessed event is supposed to occur sometime tonight, so I'll have to wait and see if I'm going to need to run my furnace or not to keep the basement pipes from freezing. It sure is a weird feeling to go from the mid-90s yesterday to today's high 30s; it messes you up both mentally and physically. I knew there was a reason I didn't throw away all of my thermal underwear when I became a full-timer.
My Grandsons school started today. I haven't figured out yet if I need to be worried about the Bat flu again or not. I've been very limited to the number of people I've been around since I've been here in Denver. I'm not isolated like I was before in Arizona, but I'm not around very many people and usually only briefly. But having my grandson exposed to a classroom full of students and teachers would seem to open up more opportunities for everyone to catch something, but I don't know if that's a problem or not.
Despite all the controversy over going back to school there appears to be three scenarios that all the scientists agree on..... It's not a problem. It is a problem. And lastly, we don't know whether it's a problem or not... Not being a scientist myself, I'm glad I have expert opinions I can fall back on.
Just a taste of things to come later today. It's already below freezing but the snow hasn't really started yet.
