Snow has come to the Front Range and Denver metro area again to kick off December. 6-8 inches fell in Golden on Thursday and this morning.
Just in time for Golden’s annual Candlelight Walk last night.
Some 4,000 or so hearty souls braved the 20-degree weather for the annual walk down the hill on Washington St. to the bridge over Clear Creek for the annual lighting of the trees along the creek and the ‘official’ start of the holiday season.
A few photographs from last night to get you in the festive holiday mood, if you’re not there already (with no accompanying “Christmas” music – you can get that, well, just about everywhere else…):
When everyone has made it down to the bridge, then we wait for the lowering of the lighted Christmas wreath…
and then, the rest of the lights along Clear Creek and the Golden Visitor Center come on!
Today has been a pretty laid-back day at la casa Nights on Venus – just cooking up a big pot of homemade chili while writing the blog (multi-tasking) and sitting in front of the fireplace… ’cause it’s a chilly day. Later on, a nice heart-warming movie… like Mulholland Drive.
And Congratulations! to fellow ReverbNation artist Linda Chorney this week for her Grammy-nominated album “Emotional Jukebox.” She was nominated in the Best Americana album category along with such long-time musical luminaries as Ry Cooder, Emmylou Harris, Levon Helm, and Lucinda Williams. This is huge for Linda and “Emotional Jukebox” is a great album – a double album no less – and certainly deserves to win, so check it out. Highly recommended. You can read her reaction to the Grammy nomination in her blog here. Way to go Linda and good luck!
