The past few days weather event in central Colorado counts in my book as winter storm numero uno. The kids are up in the mountains at a cabin, scouting elk and working on a snowcat. I’m organizing backcountry skiing gear and seeing what hand-me-downs can go to friends and what has to stay in the family. A lucky kid gets my first pair of Garmont Megarides! This is the wettest fall I can remember. Portent of winter?
