    Photo Assignment: Snow and Rainbows

    I got a good one I think.

    Bonus if you can get them on the same photo.

    Or maybe a 'what does it mean' double rainbow.

    Comin' out of nowhere
    Drivin' like rain
    Stormbringer dance
    On the thunder again

    Dark cloud gathering
    Breaking the day
    No point running
    'Cause it's coming your way

    Ride the rainbow
    Crack the sky
    Stormbringer coming
    Time to die

    Man I wish I had time to get out.
    I had a hint of rainbow in a dark cloud last night.
    Snow falling in the mountains today in small random storms, meaning other areas of the sky have blue sky.
    Ugh......long work days make it hard to do my homework (photo assignment)

    I heard there is snow on the Diablo Range, which is rare. Snow level at 1000ft apparently.

    I personally have never seen this much snow in the Santa Cruz mountains. Would have loved to get out there and find some snow covered trails, but today I started work. Back to reality, only 40 more years to go.

    Plan to work till the day you die. I ‘retired’ for six months at 32 years old, I was 'lucky.' It got boring in a hurry, but it made me realize how much I like being productive. Now I’m working more than ever and I love every minute of it.

    But then again, getting fired from my only real job was the best thing that ever happened to me. Otherwise, I would have never started my first business. Maybe you should figure out how to fire yourself!

    I've seen FAR more snow than this in the SC mountains.

    Hoping for a rainbow, but...

    ...got snow and clouds instead:



    I was going to add some music but the freebie choices at You Tube just weren't doing it for me.

    Nah, this is the Front Range. 65 one day and snow the next. When we get a snow storm it rarely stays on the ground more than a few days before melting. I can’t speak for all the areas from Folsom to Denver though. It’s straight highway driving, should be fine if you don’t hit a storm. They clear the highway pretty quick.

    7 day forecast of Denver shows today is the only precipitation. It’s done snowing now and about a 4”–6” accumulation. Should be all gone within a couple of days according to these temps.
