Dashing Through the Snow
Snowing at Southlands - click for larger view of all the flakes falling
The Winter Solstice is a couple of weeks away, and the beautiful snowfall we have this weekend makes it all the more evident. Today, we decided to go do a little holiday shopping at Southlands, and then to have lunch at Ted's Montana Grill. This was the first time I have eaten at Ted's, but it was outstanding. I had the bison meatloaf with garlic mashed potatoes and Aunt Fannie's squash casserole. The lovely spouse had grilled salmon that was grilled to perfection. Everything is made fresh at Ted's, and the service was fantastic as well. Our server, Joey, and the manager Antonio, made sure we were well taken care of. Finishing off with key lime pie made this a perfect lunch. The Ted who owns Ted's is none other than Ted Turner, the founder of Turner Broadcasting and CNN.
Anyway, on our way into the restaurant, I decided to snap this picture across the plaza of Southlands, looking over the ice rink and toward the cinema. The snow was falling at a pleasant rate, not blowing, but just very pretty to look at. Some days I really enjoy living in Colorado. Today is one of them.
