Another snow storm swept Denver today. The roads were slick, the traffic light, and the shops, offices, and sidewalks empty. No doubt future historians will be able to track the storms in the city's sale tax receipts. It was great day for getting things done if you did not get killed.
Yesterday the skiing was great but the roads were difficult. I-70 was dry to Georgetown but above the little mining town there was a major winter storm. Only 15 miles separate G-town from Loveland, but traffic was crawling at best. It took so long to travel that short distance I began to run out of gas and had to turn around at Exit 214 and get more fuel back in Georgetown before starting up I-70 again. In the end it took me over 2 hours to travel a distance I normally cover in 15 minutes. Along the way I listened to Charles Kimball'sComparative Religion course. His description of the different views of monotheism, polytheism, and dualism across Judaism, Christianity, Islam, Buddhism, and Hinduism was especially insightful. It also came in handy because I prayed a lot when my car slipped on black ice.
