Good morning and welcome to Summit Up, the world's only daily column that can't believe this is the last day of March. Why it seems like just yesterday we were staring wistfully out the office windows imagining the bluebird days and fresh powder that Ullr was sure to bestow on The Summit during our favorite (and traditionally snowiest) of months here in Colorado. The bleak days of February sure did turn into some pretty sweet days on the hill this month. So it is with a tear in our eye and a beer in our hand that we bid adieu to March and prep our winter-hardened souls for the thaw that appears to be well under way in many parts of the High Country.
To show you that we're not all heathens in the Summit Up Corporate Suites we'd like to wish all those reading our daily diatribe a hearty and healthy happy Easter!
It seems that the Easter Bunny has a way of avoiding ink-stained scribes such as ourselves, so we've been experimenting with placing rabbit ears on the office mutts in the hope that they will bestow some of those incredibly tasty Cadbury eggs on our desks. To be honest, we're not very creative around here; we stole the idea from the old TV commercials from our childhoods. Sadly, though, we've had no success to date. We can't even seem to keep the ears attached to the pooches. One would think that if dogs are really man's best friend that they'd be more inclined to indulge man's strange proclivities.
Well, that's about all we've got today. Catch you on the flip side.
