Winter at a Colorado KOA!

 I noticed a strange purple light out my bedroom window a couple of days ago, so had to get up to see this gorgeous sunrise. The entire area was bathed in this lovely purple. It was portending the coming storm, predictions of our first real snow and single digit temps. Notice the motorhome on the left. (Click to enlarge photo.) I took this from inside my trailer.

Two days later, the storm had arrived, along with the low, low temps. There's that motorhome again. I believe they are leaving for Texas in a couple of days. Can't blame them! Our row will be empty except for us on one end and the other workamper on the other end, visible way down there in the center of the photo. We do still have several monthlies here, also.

 The store and registration building, the typical KOA  'A' frame — Keith is out front shoveling the walks. He's very good at that, since we haven't yet learned to head south in the winter!

Here is our cozy home, skirts on and ready for snow and wind. Our park is across the road from the huge Strasburg grain elevators, towers so familiar in this part of Colorado. We are also right next to the famous railroad where the last spike, at Comanche Crossing, joined the rails from New York to San Francisco. (See my post from October 15) I like the rushing sound of the train and its warning whistle as it zooms through town several times a day, carrying sometimes coal and other times who knows what. To me, it's a friendly sound.
