This Blows

So we flew to Colorado to stay with friends and do some skiing. Weather forecasters are telling us to expect 10 to 20 inches of new snow in the mountains today.  This should be awesome.

The Eisenhower Tunnel is getting the snow already, so it may be a bit too dangerous for travel. And the wind is expected to be very strong, especially Loveland. We decide to go to Eldora instead, which is much closer.

Upon arrival, we see the lifts are not running and the wind is blowing at 30 m.p.h., gusting to 50. Will the lifts run again? Probably not — they recorded gusts of 75+ near the top.

This blows. No skiing today, but tomorrow should be excellent.
