Almost Never Boring…

and often easily amused

The View Out There 9 May 2006

Here at work, I sit right next to a window.  Our offices are on the “garden” level (it’s a half-basement-type thing) and my window is just about even with the ground level.  Across the road, I can see the local elementary school, and in the distance Pike’s Peak.  I *love* that I can sit here and work and watch the world go by.  Today was an especially exciting day in my little window-watching world and I wanted to share it with y’all…

This morning I was sitting here and all of a sudden a fox darted past my window, not three feet away.  It was trotting along with a rabbit in its mouth.  Later, I got to watch the kids in the school playing out on the playground.  After lunch, I was able to watch a storm come over Pike’s Peak.  The clouds rolled in, and eventually I could no longer see the Peak.  Soon after, it started to sprinkle, then it started to pour, and the next thing I knew it was hailing.  The hail arrived just as the kids at the school were loading the busses.  It was *so* funny to watch the kids making a run for their busses.  And now as I’m about to head home, yet *another* storm is coming over the Peak.  We’re supposed to maybe get a bit of snow tonight.  Crazy, I know, but that’s Colorado for ya…
