Last week’s unexpectedly robust storm cast a whitish pall over my sons’ impending Little League season. Last night’s snowfall — again, robust — challenged my hopeful suggestion to my baseball-starved sons that the past week was an isolated incident. And the white stuff that continues to fall outside my window has finally convinced me that our local, small-town brand of Spring Training will have to wait until…well…Spring. Which, if we’re lucky, will arrive some time around Saturday. That’s Wyoming weather for you — a barrel of laughs.
In the meantime, I’m scratching my baseball itch by watching the Rockies and the Mets battle it out at Coors Field this afternoon.
Oh, right. They’re playing in Denver, aren’t they? Let me rephrase: I’m scratching that itch by watching #SnowSeries tweets scroll by. And by “digging” back through the Colorado Rockies’ archived snow-removal pictures. Yep, that’s right. Misery loves company. (They’re scheduled to start at 3:10 MDT, if you’re up for it. Bring a coat.)
