I gather the weather has been all taps aff at home – but (and you can stop sniggering at the back, please) over here in Colorado the weather has been distinctly … well, Scottish.
Nothing daunted by the cold and threatened rain (I believe the words ‘I’m not made of sugar’ may have crossed my lips) I headed out on my own on the bike this morning to check out the height of the Fountain Creek, because nobody else wanted to join me, for some reason.
Of course, it started raining the minute I got on the bike, but I could hardly turn back so I pressed on anyway, glad that I had, in a moment of madness at home, packed a pair of gloves as well as a rain jacket.
The river path is currently undergoing some work, which hopefully will not be undone again by the latest rain. As there was nobody around, and the alternative involved sprinting across a road, I am sorry to say that I just ignored this sign.
On the other hand, I have never seen Colorado looking more green and the spring flowers are all in bloom. Some of them more springlike than others
For those of you enjoying warm sunny May weather in our absence, you are most welcome.
