Welcome to Colorado! Starting with the fifteen-hour drive, I could tell the weather would be crazy. Tornadoes and incredibly dense fog in Amarillo, hail in Santa Rosa, winds that blew over an 18-wheeler in Tucumcari, and snow during the final two hours. I'm not sure how much more crazy the drive could have been. Then, to top everything off, when I woke up on our first day, there were sixteen inches of snow, and another five fell during the day. Now, I would never complain about too much snow, but there was a lot of it.
