Cars and more

We have been cooped up here for several days.  other than a short trip to Lakewood yesterday we have not been out much but hey it snowed over a foot and was cold for a few days… Strange how last week (Wednesday through Friday) it could be cold, snowing like crazy and blowing and then by Sunday it was warm and we attend a car show not 70 miles away in t-shirts… Gotta love how it works up here.

So as we start out trip south it looks like this… still big snow on the Peak…. and only clouds around the peak so far…  We drove on down to  Florence for their 2017 annual car show… I think they have done this for 17 years or so?  shut off 3 or 4 blocks of main street and pack them in.
