Not to worry it will be in the 80's next week and you all will still be in Shorts ; )

JMHO,
Does this look familiar, Busskipper? I bought the DW a winter jacket, a roast chicken and gas at Costco in Superior yesterday.
The only thing hairy about the drive back to the coach was the drivers on US36 and I-25 weaving in and out of traffic, speeding and tailgating just as if there wasn't a rain/snow mix with reduced visibility from the slushy water thrown up from the pavement.
One guy in particular was jerking his wheel abruptly back and forth across four lanes of heavy traffic with his left turn signal on for several miles. Geez, these young drivers are just so absent-minded.

At Least that was not the Son - as he works from the House with Covid now - That is one great Costco - always a pleasure to shop there.

Hoping it does not mess with the leaves too much as we do not get back for another week.

Bill

Just watching the news. The west side of Boulder got hit hard with 5.5 inches of wet heavy snow. Lots of tree limbs, some power lines and even a power pole down. The sugar maple trees that were still fully leafed out were especially hard hit. They didn't mention the aspens.

I drove it in a car in December. Having done it in a car in snowy weather I would not want to try it in my RV.

The regulations for our car was to have All Weather Tires or chains. We opted for the tires.

I haven't read through this thread all the way but the concern right now is FIRES.

Whatever you decide be careful.
