45 degree swings

Published by under General Information

untitled (WinCE)A beautiful Labor Day weekend here in the Cuchara Valley.  But cool crisp nights and warm sunny days tell me that Fall is definately headed our way.  Several sun-up morning temps dropped down to 38 degrees followed by daytime highs of 83 degrees.   Have to layer even for golf.

SPACe Stage Park Show

Published by under General Information

Bruce reports that local musicians David and Annie Enke have confirmed that 4 time Grammy nominees ‘Trout Fishing in America’ will be playing on the SPACE Stage in the La Veta Town Park on Sunday Sept 12th at 2pm.  David says that these guys recently put on one of the best concerts that Annie & he have ever been to (” never laughed so hard in my entire life!”), and this show should be a spectacular wrap up to our summer Concert Series in the Park. The concert will be dedicated to our local Children’s Music Enrichment Program, and we’re thrilled to be able to get these guys to come.

Record Cold?

Published by under General Information

WOW.  Woke up this morning and saw frost on top of the hot-tub cover.  Thermometer is registering 39 degrees.  I knew a cool front was coming in but didn’t expect it to feel like Fall this morning.  Sure hope for long slow Indian Summer weather now.  Oktoberfest and Celtic Festivals are upcoming soon.
