Colorado Center for the Blind
Take Charge with Confidence and Self-Reliance

Snow Already!

David K. walks through the snow on a winter morning

If you’re on the Front Range of Colorado this post won’t surprise you, because you drove/walked/bussed in a steadily-falling snow this morning.

But let’s admit it – this 3 to 5 inches of snow is a bit early this year, just think of all those trees whose leaves have yet to drop! Tonight will be a killing freeze, whith temps in the low 20s. That will likely mean an icy commute tomorrow morning. Tricky, but it’s part of the deal. Blind people have to go to work in good weather and bad, just like anyone else. And that’s what we teach and expect here at the Center. So, we’ll be open tomorrow just like today, unless of course frozen branches knock out the power, as they did in an arc that went around us, vfrom the Bemis Library to the Littleton Downtown Light Rail Station.

Charles S. reading from his Braille instruction book

To make it all worthwhile today, Charles S. finished learning the Braille alphabet. This is the kind of thing that is regularly announdcd over the PA system or at announcements first thing in the morning.

Who would want to miss out on achieving that kind of milestone?
