Summit Up
Special to the Daily

Good morning and welcome to Summit Up, the world’s only daily column that longed for the summer months just a little bit this weekend.As we pirched on top of the half pipe the other day at the U.S. Snowboarding Grand Prix in Breckenridge, we thought how it was really unfortunate that our fingers were so cold they were basically non-existent. Our toes so numb that it took the entire car ride back to Frisco before we had all the feeling back in our right big toe. Yes, it was a cold one this weekend and it made us think back a few months ago when we could walk the streets in shorts and flip-flops.However, with the cold comes the snow and we suppose we’ll have to take the good with the bad. So, we’ll stop our belly-aching about chilly weather and suck it up.***Now, we are delighted to have an Angel Alert!! Angel Alert!! to share from Kristin M. Haley.Kristin writes: “This is the nicest thing I’ve witnessed in a long time. A woman came into our office yesterday morning and told me she’d gotten her car stuck in the snow bank across the street. I went out with her to see if maybe we could free it by pushing. Well, it was more stuck than she thought it was and we couldn’t get it out. Just as we were trying, a man pulled up in a flat bed tow-truck. Seeing that it couldn’t be pushed out, he backed his truck up, hooked her car up to his tow chain and proceeded to pull the car out of the bank. All he asked in return was that we recommend him to our friends. I thought it was a kind and generous gesture by Andy Faulkner of Discount Towing & Recovery in Breckenridge.***Finally, we received an update on the Three Peaks resident moose, apparently the moose is a peeping tom! As shown on this page, the moose was peering through Linda St. John’s window last Wednesday.***We out, shopping for warmer mittens.
