Deke out shoveling snow.
Colleen showed us NCAR (National Center for Atmospheric Research) just above their house with a building designed by I. M. Pei. Then she drove us to the airport.
If I thought the drive to Boulder was scary, it was nothing compared to the blizzard conditions we encountered getting to the airport. What would normally take 45 min took about an hour and a half.
We are now having dinner at the airport while waiting for our flight which is 45 min late.
I am worried about Colleen driving back to Boulder by herself. Later: Colleen texted that she arrived home safely. The snow had let up, but the road was treacherous.
