    Just for those of you who aren't use to the rocky mountain region. Yesterday; here in cheyenne, it was 74 degrees. The academy was 77. We worked on yard work, worked on my 66 mustang. Played with my Motorcycle and went for a ride. The perfect spring day.

    Today; it's 33 degrees. And here's a picture outside my back door. Guess what; the academy gets the exact same type of weather change. Mike...

    Well; our weather has finally changed. Stopped snowing. Got about 3-4 inches of snow. About 12-13" drifts. Melted off the streets and sidewalks. Windy. Suppose to be 50-60's tomorrow and most of the week, so it will all be gone probably tomorrow. Gotta love it. mike....

    Another effect of the Rockies weather:

    Son's squadron is stuck at Nellis AFB until tomorrow morning. They went to Nellis (their sponsor base) for the weekend and were supposed to return today. Due to the heavy turbulence caused by the weather in the Rockies, the C-130 that was their ride back to USAFA couldn't make the trip. They'll miss classes tomorrow morning, but son didn't seem too worried about it. They decided to head to Vegas tonight and see Cirque de Soleil.

    Windy... and dry as a bone!! My son was happy that I had added plenty of Chapstick and Blistex to his toiletries for BCT. He said it was a "must have"!
