I continue to be amazed by the lush green so apparent in news stories, webcams, everywhere. It's so ... unColorado. I was used to brown meadows, acres of dry grass, drab hillsides baking in the late summer heat. You're right, it reminds one of Ireland or some other place far, far from here. Even my own yard is kind of ridiculous. Some of the trees and shrubs took notable damage over the winter, but everything else is becoming junglelike. So many crickets and frogs at night -- sounds like I'm near a swamp! The nearest creek is ½ mile away.

Hard to believe it's already been 10 years since those awful floods. And you tally up everything since, and add it to what's happened nationwide in just the last week. Makes one wonder if "disaster" is the new norm. Ma Nature is pissed!

No, the lush won't last. But for now it's absolutely delicious!

I'A guilty pleasure indeed but I too reveled in the lushness of Colorado and Wyoming on my recent visit. Makes me yearn for normalcy. Weather has always been unpredictable but never so existentially threatening as it is now, at least not in my memory.


Enjoy the splendor!
