Cowering in Colorado

Easter Snow

Easter Snow

THE WINTERY WEATHER ON EASTER WEEKEND made “Cower-From-Covid” a little more palatable.  We did have to brave the cold Sunday morning and arrange for a new rental car.  Denver International Airport was deserted and I was pleasantly surprised that the Dollar Rental station was open.  Our brand new Chevy Spark may be the smallest car we have ever rented.  At less than $20/day we are actually paying less than most American drivers spend on their own cars.


            Spring Snow on our teeny car

The snow and cold continued yesterday — 3” or so total — and we are expecting more on Thursday.  It’s a bit of a shock after our nearly endless summer but it didn’t deter Connie from her daily constitutional.  Chances of her coming within two-meters of anyone at 7AM are pretty remote.  And she can get toasty by the fireplace when she returns.


                    No lines — Yet

We’ve been back in the States for 2 weeks but after 5 months of driving on the "wrong side of the road," I still haven’t totally adapted to driving on the right — with no particular place to go it’s mox nix.  We moved out of the hotel on Wednesday and are snug in our AirB&B apartment.  We haven’t had any problems provisioning at Walmart or Safeway — the shelves are spotty in places but there haven’t been any lines yet.  There is still so much to choose from. 


                 Almost Normal

I enjoy having a kitchen again but my repertoire has been depleted since my recipes disappeared when the computer died.  Thank goodness for the internet.
