I’m having a hard time accepting it, but the weather is starting to change in Denver. In fact, meteorologists are actually predicting snowfall in the city both Wednesday and Friday nights. It probably won’t be a lot, if any, but it’ll definitely serve as a reminder that things are changing and I’ve got to start looking at what my kids need to stay warm come winter.
