Is there anything more hygienic than freshly fallen snow?
This photograph was taken last winter, after a snowstorm here in Hygiene, Colorado. The wind was whipping the snow up, obscuring the range in the distance. Our little town earned its rather unique name from days gone by, when it hosted a sanitarium for tuberculosis patients.
So how much snow does Boulder get in an average winter?
U.S. Department of Commerce’s National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration has been keeping of monthly snowfall in Boulder Colorado since the late 1800′s. Last season’s total snowfall was just 41.4 inches, which was considerably lower than previous years.
