Hurricane Force

Today was some straight-up freak-ass weather, even for Colorado.

I noticed it first this morning, when I headed off to work around 5 am and it was already 44°F. That's too warm for a February morning.

When I reached the parking lot at work, the wind was so intense I just about couldn't walk against it. Now, I spend the work day in a windowless cube farm, so I more-or-less forgot about the weather until I left, and in the stairwell, I could hear it rattling the building apart.

Later I would learn the winds had been in excess of 90 miles per hour. Electrical poles near the IBM complex were snapped apart. A grass fire had started (the smoke of which you can see in the 4th and 5th pictures below). And trucks were blown off the road.

So then this morning, we had a surprise 8-or-so inches of snow on the ground that I had to drive through. Still managed to make it to my desk on time.

The car's been exposed to so many elements the past couple of days, I think the only one left is Milla Jovovich.
