Spring Sports in Colorado
The Chamber of Commerce and Tourism Board probably don’t want me to reveal that the Rockies had to cancel their game due to snow on April 22. What is good news for skiers, snowboarders and mountain resorts is bad news for baseball players, tennis players, and track team members who signed up for “spring sports.” This year, the spring sports in Colorado are the winter sports continuing.
They said on the sports news last night that high school baseball teams throughout the state have all missed half of their games, 7 instead of 14, for this point in the season. Such a problem hasn’t happened in 30 years, they reported. Play-offs start in 10 days. Oh well. All are in the same circumstances. That is why spring training for the Rockies is in Arizona and not Colorado.
Last week, Colorado had lots of snow that caused road closures, school closures, business closures and even courthouse closures. Then we had a warm weekend with temperatures in the 60s and most of the snow melted. Now it is snowing again. It looks exactly like the photos I posted on April 15th. Exactly! So you can refer to the pics on that snow day post to see what it looks like today.
Those of you who reside in other elevations and climates, maybe even other hemispheres, might not believe me or properly visualize what I am writing about.
But I ain’t complaining. I kinda like it.
Maybe I won’t be able to get to my office in town. All I need is a good excuse. And a good internet connection.
