It was a wild weekend here, with fierce winds and fresh snow, a combination that can be tough to endure when we're outdoors. It was almost impossible to look to the west yesterday because of the wind blasting off the Divide and hurling icy snow at us. Shyla kept her eyes firmly pointed away from the onslaught of the wind.
We discovered that the winds, while still blowing, were much less intense.
This is what the Continental Divide looks like when there's a big storm sitting over it that's blowing 75 mph winds toward us. It's eerily pretty.
Thanks for all of your input about my growing migraine problem. Based on what you've all written, I think that the arrival of this storm might have played a role in my migraine - both happened almost simultaneously. Your suggestions helped a lot and will help in the future (although I hope I never have another one - and that no one else does either!).
Here's to smooth sailing ahead for all of us!
