Although the Colorado Springs area didn’t get much snow this week we did get another taste of winter and many places in the state received more than a foot of snow. Good news for our drought conditions but I think most people are ready for a true spring. We are ready to get outdoors, spend time in our beautiful parks and hiking trails, attend outdoor music festivals and leave winter behind. What are you ready to do once we leave winter behind?
