A trip to Alamosa

Today was supposed to be a really nice day so I made a trip to Alamosa, 40 miles one way. As I was going out to the truck, I said to Bruce WOW, LOOK AT THOSE NASTY CLOUDS. We can see the Spanish Peaks over near LaVeta from our house and there were very black clouds over them. Off I went. When I got to Alamosa, I called Bruce and he said REMEMBER THOSE NASTY CLOUDS? THEY ARE OVER OUR HOUSE NOW---snowing hard! I went ahead with all of my stops: a place to have our ink cartridges filled, True Value, WalMart, Big R, City Market, Walgreen's, picked up the cartridges, then to the bank---and headed back to Fort Garland to stop at the Post Office and pick up a few things at our local grocery. Below is a picture of the two of them---they share a building. As I headed out of Fort Garland the snow flakes started in earnest. I wanted to take a picture of Mt. Blanca to share with you but couldn't even see it---so here is one that was taken on another day. It is one of the mountains in Colorado that are fondly referred to as "fourteener".

The closer I got to home ,the more snow fell. Thankfully there was no wind to speak of so I made it home, safe and sound. It was difficult to see the road though---everything was very white!!!
So that is the report from the mountains for the day! :)+
