El Niño

El Niño-

I am currently taking a “Weather and Atmosphere” class at The University of Colorado and I learned something today that I 04cc3a11ca3e77e3072a15ee67f7b105wanted to share with all my fellow “winter lovers”.

Just as in 1997, this September there was a warm Southern Pacific Ocean. This is good news because the warm waters lead to high expectations for strong El Niño potential. These unique weather patterns that are associated with this year should result in a mighty El Niño, which usually results in record winter snowstorms.

The Weather Service says it could be the biggest El Niño they have seen in 50 years. Bigger storms and stronger storms occur in El Niño years!

So, the moral of my post is that I have learned something useful at school this year- I will be missing A LOT of class this winter 😉

Refreshing with Freshies!

Over Christmas break I got the chance to ski with family and friends. Not only was the skiing fantastic, it also provided some great “catching up” time. Seeing old friends Après-ski, hearing about their lives and families, I’m reminded that skiing in my hometown makes for the perfect day. The chairlift is the ideal place to laugh and reminisce with family and friends. The lift line produces multiple opportunities to run into old classmates and even make new acquaintances. To top it off, successful powder hunting, makes for life-long memories. This Christmas I hope you’re surrounded by loved ones, and deep fluffy powder!

Successful Powder Hunting makes for lifelong memories!

IMG_8706Our very first best friends, the ones we grew up with, shared genes and memories, today we’re thankful for cousins.

Thanksgiving is usually celebrated with family and as we prepare for the holiday and reminisce about the past RooEpic remembers just how fabulous cousins are. Share some love with your cousins by sending them a package of some RooEpic stuff.

“A cousin is a ready made friend for life.”

“A cousin is a little bit of childhood that can never be lost.” Marion C. Garretty

“Time passes and we may be apart, but cousins always stay close at heart.”

Dear Mountains,

Dear Mountains,

Thank you for you majesty,

thank you for being a constant in the horizon, thanks for welcoming me home after being in flat country, thanks for be my guide for directions.

Thank you for you colors,

thank you for your purples and blues, your greens, the violets, pinks, reds, and oranges, thanks for the palest pastels and vibrantest vibrants.

Thank you for your coolness,

thank you for a breeze in the hottest of summer days with the scent of lasting snow bank in your breath.

Thank you for the way you challenge me,

thank you for your steep peaks that loom in height and remind me to keep climbing, thanks for pushing me to go faster, rushing me to catch up with gravity, thanks for the memories.

Thank you for comfort,

thanks for wrapping yourself around me, thanks for your gentle valleys, and whispering encouragement.

Dearest Mountains, thank you.
