It's been snowing off and on the past couple of days in Breckenridge, Colorado. It's typical we'd get some snow in town in the Fall sometime during the month of September, but we're wondering if Old Man Winter is making his entrance early or if we will truly get to enjoy a little bit of fall. Snowcapped peaks and golden changing Aspens in the background make it the perfect time to cozy up at home around the fireplace and read a book. It's nice to have days like this in Breckenridge and with all the talk about what an epic winter it's going to be, we can't help but get excited for more.

Here's a photo from this morning of the snow covered peaks of Breckenridge Ski Resort. The count down until opening day begins!

Earlier in the month, we emailed our clients and friends with our "Secret Stash" recommendation - our local's secret and something not to miss in Breckenridge, Colorado. Our "Secret Stash" for the week was the beautiful changing Aspens at their peak on Boreas Pass. We hope you were able to check it out. We have been up there several times this fall and this weekend was beautiful. Get up there in the next few days if you haven't already, or the leaves will have fallen and you might have to wait until next year.

Winter is just around the corner and we’re wondering what it might bring. Each year we hope for endless snow. Will Mother Nature deliver this year? We’ve reviewed weather predictions from two separate, century-old forecasting methods - the Farmers’ Almanac and Weather Folklore. There are some interesting insights from both and if they're right, it could be a big Winter. Hint, hint…shoveling may be in your future.

Without computers or instruments to forecast weather long-term, Farmers’ Almanac predictions are based on a top-secret mathematical and astronomical formula that dates back to the 1800s, when the first issue was published. This formula is still heavily relied upon today with the latest 2010 predictions just released. Will it be a cold Winter? The…
