I was super excited to go to Colorado because I wanted a white Christmas. Did that happen? Of course not! Instead, we left a white Oregon for a brown Colorado. It's a good thing Jessi's family was there because otherwise it would have been kind of depressing. Thankfully, despite the snow hazards in Oregon we were able to make our way up to Portland and leave. I did get to see airplanes being deiced for the first time - that was cool.
Don't be completely fooled by the picture though. It was still cool out, but I do think it got above 60 degrees on occasion. It was at least warm enough that we took a walk almost every day.
