Summit Up

Scott BullockGarth in Paradise

Good morning and welcome to Summit Up, the world’s only daily column that’s started dreaming in snow.We’re actually not sure if it’s so much a dream as it could be a nightmare.We’ve had the dream twice now, and both times it’s left us with an uneasy feeling.In it, there’s snow everywhere, but it’s the beginning of August. Everyone in the dream is pretty weirded out by it. And for some reason, the Corporate Suites no longer exists in the dream, so we’re trying to get a job at Applebee’s as the person who mans the ping pong table. Frankly, we didn’t even know that Applebee’s had a ping pong table. Or that Summit County had an Applebee’s for that matter.Regardless, the point is the snow was turning our world upside down.

What does it all mean?! That we’re secretly (or not so secretly) wishing summer would just keep on keepin’ on and winter would just come again another day? That we are afraid to get back out their on the slopes for fear that we’ve lost our skiing chops over the summer? That we need to move to some deserted island that never ever sees a flake of snow all year long?The whole thing is keeping us up at night.Anyone out there any good at dream interpretation? Give us a call at (970) 668-3998, ext. 257, or drop us a line at***We have an Angel Alert! Angel Alert! from some sweet little anonymous soul out there.

Apparently last Sunday, there was a dog running loose on Highway 6. Eight kindhearted folks stopped to catch it and were ultimately successful. His owners were visiting the county, and the poor little pup got lost in Dillon. The owners and Eddie the dog were reunited and are very thankful to everyone who stopped to help.Wings and halos to all the helpers and a few doggie bones to Eddie the dog.***We have a very sad announcement to make to an unfortunate pet owner out there in Summit Up Land.

We just received the following e-mail from Rolf:”Sept. 6 at around 6:30 p.m. I was a witness to the unfortunate death of (a) black cat being struck by a car on Highway 9 in Blue River near the 97 Circle. (The) beautiful cat ran directly into traffic, and the woman who struck her did stop and was grieving so. After comforting the woman, I did give your cat a good burial along with a prayer.”Our sincere condolences …***It’s Saturday, and we’re out soaking up the sun in hopes it will drive those nightmares away …
