my Colorado back window

Looking outside my back window this year did not reveal the flocks of robins or the songs of peepers that are the harbingers of all that is Spring. The hillside still has snow (30" since May 1):
And on that hillside there are lots of these:
And some of these:

hair bears

My husband has been seeing an accupuncturist for thinning hair.  Do you think it's working?
Like my new hat?
The puffy coats are still in use as it is, indeed, still snowing.  Grand total is now just shy of 500". 

at last, the internet arrives!

It's all very exciting.  This newfangled internet business.  Do you actually capitalize the I?  Not sure.  AP Style Guide and Chicago Manual are conflicted.  So much to know.

My little town, where cell phones don't work, Comcast doesn't believe exists (really), and which covers less than a square mile of land, just has been introduced to the World Wide Web.  For real.  It took building a hotel (The Green Bridge Inn) and the investors involved to bully the phone company into bringing a T1 over 10 miles to us so that we could have contact with the universe.  

::Applause::

So, for a girl whose business depends on this new technology, as well as her social outlet with friends 2,000 miles away, I can finally catch up on the 6 months of inactivity.  

Excellent.
