Snow storm is a comin’.  On my way home after work I passed these little critters getting their last meal before they hunker down to wait it out. Weather will be downright frigid Tues. and Wed.

Great Weekend

Published by under General Information

We had a great weekend, weather-wise and business-wise too.  Fun.  Forecast Monday calling for snow by 2:00 pm and accumulating 4 to 6 inches in La Veta,  and 8 to 10 inches in Cuchara by Tuesday afternoon.  And that’s OK with us.  We have been very dry and really need that moisture for the spring run-off water supply.

just talkin’ bout the weather and stuff

Published by under General Information

If you live in southern Colorado, then you know what warm clear days we are having.  In the 50’s today and possible 60 tomorrow.  I have clients both days this weekend so it’s nice that the weather is co-operating.  The warm weather will turn back to snow showers next Tuesday. Just in time for the second weekly wine classes at La Veta Inn.   Alys’  is hosting the 6 weeks classes on wine.  Word on the street so far shows lots of interest.  We saw Don Ayers last week and he too is getting the Timbers Restaurant in Cuchara ready to re-open soon.  So come eat, drink and be merry with us real soon.

My Thanks

Published by under General Information

Blogging most days is easy and fun.  But some days my ideas hit a brick wall and it seems a chore.  About that time, someone says “Thanks, we enjoy reading the blog“.  So my own Thank You this week to Mary-Ann, Ruth Ann and others. You kindly remind me that it gives a moment of pleasure to hear about happenings here in the Cuchara Valley.  I’ll try to keep it up.    Jerry

County Emergency Phone

Published by under General Information

Some of you may want to make note of the new Huerfano County Emergency Dispatch phone numbers.  In bringing the new system up to date,  Dispatch personnel will only be able to answer either 911 for emergency or 738-1044 for non-emergency. This is for Dispatch routing to police, sheriff, marshall, fire or ambulance.  You may still place direct calls to County Sheriff Office personnel for non-emergency info. at 738-1600 but this should not be used for emergency dispatch.

Rio Grande Scenic Railroad

Published by under General Information

Rio Grande Scenic Railroad officials were in LaVeta this past  week presenting  plans for more fun specialty events this summer.  The railroad is wanting to promote a Photographers Excursion trip, bringing as many as 200 folks to LaVeta for an overnight stay, concert in the park and other activities. And ideas for an Artist Train are in the works as well.  And they announced an intent to hire a full staff of La Veta locals this year, from Conductor on down to ticket agents.  Could provide 6 to 8 new jobs in our community.

More Restaurants?

Published by under General Information

Local buzzzz is that the Covered Wagon may be Under Contract.  And a new mexican restaurant could be a part of that business plan.  Meanwhile, more people are also looking at the old Blue Rooster-Pub building but the new Bistro Brewery is closed- only temporarily we hope.

Warming Weekend

Published by under General Information

It’s been a little cold and blustery after the earlier snow.  But weekend is predicted to be warming nicely.  Have clients flying in from Houston area to look at some property so nice weather would be good.  Of course gotta have some time for the playoff games too, right?
