For the record, 2007 has been such a warm, dry autumn in Colorado Springs that you can still mountain bike the high, shady Jones Downhill route or run up Pikes Peak in sneakers (bring a wind breaker.) That may all end Wednesday when snow is supposed to blow through, but several predicted storms have now skipped over the region with nothing more than the slight smell of humid air. We'll see. In the mean time, it doesn't really feel like Christmas is only four weeks away.
That sentiment can be seen at the stores. According to the National Retail Federation’s 2007 Holiday Consumer Intentions Survey, conducted by BIGresearch, most consumers (71.4%) have less than ten percent of their holiday shopping completed.
Count me in that group. I've been too busy enjoying this nice weather.
