Ok, so maybe it really wasn't a blizzard in Cheyenne terms, but for a G.R.I.T.S. gal like me, it was definitely a blizzard. On Friday, Dec. 31, we had a high of 0 degrees, but with the windchill, it was -25 degrees. NOT cool. :)
The worst part was the insane wind. On Friday, I decided to brave the crazy weather and jog up to our little workout room at the front of the complex. Well in the 1/10 of a mile that I had to go, I thought I might not survive. Hahaha! With the wind blowing snow in my face, preventing me from being able to see 2 steps in front of me, I tramped (and fell) through the snow. I made it to the workout room just to find 2 feet of snow blocking the door. I inched the door open and frantically squeezed my way through. The journey back wasn't any better... as a matter of fact, it was even more of a battle. But hey, I got my workout in for the day! Was it worth it? Questionable.
Here are a few pics of the snow around our complex...
