Not so wordless Wednesday

As I went to bed last night, I realized something amazing.  I have been back in Colorado now for one year.

It seems hard to believe, but it is true, and how things have changed, when I came back the weather was in the 80's the sky was clear and blue and I was living in a hotel on 11th and Broadway in Denver and spending nearly #300.00 a week for my room.

Exterior of the Hotel and the market it went to to get my groceries on a weekly schedule.
Hallway at 11th Ave Hotel at Broadway and 11th.

The weather was beautiful, there was no snow to be seen, and I had to buy short sleeve shirts and light weight slacks immediately, I had come with winter weather clothing and was not ready for the warm weather I met.

The new residence and new furnishings at the beginning of August of 2012.

guThus was Denver a year ago.  Notice anything missing.  No snow.

By August of last year I had found a place to live and with in a month my wife had joined me.
One year later and there is snow on the ground.

Amazing how much can change in one year.  I came back to Colorado a year ago, I struggled to find work, I am working now, but the trade off is that there is snow on the ground, when a year ago there was blue skies and short sleeve weather.  What a difference a year can make.
