I'm blaming Taco for the snow.
I can't believe it's been 24 years since the Christmas Eve blizard of 82. It snowed 48 inches, then the wind started up and it went below zero for days straight. There was a drift on the east side of my house to the eve.
Denver almost completely shut down for two weeks and it was two months before we got a thaw. It was comical and got the Mayor voted out.
Oddly, the local liquor store was open, so we did a group march thru the waist deep snow and purchased a keg and pulled it back 10 blocks with ropes like dogs with the girls yelling "mush...mush..."...and spanking us along. True story.
