Snow coming down, tulips coming up

Snowstorms have Steamboat on the ropes: it hit the northern mountains with over a foot Friday and Saturday, then clobbered it with 18 more inches in the last 48 hours. Steamboat tends to be feast or famine. The northern-most mountain in the state has insanely good conditions right now.
Meanwhile, down on the Front Range, I noticed late last week that after months of snow, bulbs in my front yard have decided it's time to do their thing. The tulips are uncurling their broad leaves. The bright green nubs of the daffodils are starting to poke through the leaf litter. Gotta love Colorado. Spring is coming... get out your snow shovel.
