ragtags studio central: sarah's random this & that

random means "having no definite aim or purpose," (1655), taken from "at random" (1565), "at great speed" (thus, "carelessly, haphazardly"). In 1980s college student slang, it somehow, and sadly, acquired a distinct sense of "inferior, undesirable." (Online Etymology Dictionary, Douglas Harper) Well, okay, fine, Mr. Online Etymology Dictionary person, but THIS is the 21st Century. It's a whole new ball of wax.

Digging Deeper: March 14, 2007 There'll be a change in the weather

Seth has offered us another opportunity to dig still further into the archives of our blogs for additional Buried Treasure. While the contents of this post from March of 2007 may not have been deep, it's subject matter certainly was! We were just thawing out after several months of a big snowstorm and since Thursday night my book club comrades will be at my house watching Christmas in Connecticut (1940's, Barbara Stanwyk!) as we celebrate Christmas in July, I thought it would be the perfect thing to re-post. And maybe serve as a cooling refreshment to anyone in the middle of a Heat Wave...
Spring is just around the corner. In fact, it's only a week away. We are so happy to see it beckoning, from the snow crocuses peeking up through frozen ground, to the green aura of the aspen buds. For most of the week we have had windows open to the sky and gone coat free. However, there has been a rumor circulating for several days that we haven't seen the last of THIS (above). Those pictures were taken in my yard after a good deal of melting had occurred.
Fort Collins had 70 days in a row with snow on the ground this winter! Dante was inspired to make the sign by Denver Post photo archives Corina sent to us. They're from the Blizzard of 1913. Brrrrr!This one actually looks kinda familiar --- it's vintage deja vu!
