The Subtle Beauty Of Snow Covered Patio Furniture

Another big snowstorm has come and gone, but with every storm, some things stay the same. 

With the arrival of every big winter storm, two amazing and very common things happen. 

The first before the storm:

I gotta get the bread and milk! They said snow! I gotta get the bread and milk.

We have to get the bread and the milk.  We stock up. We get ready for life underground. Because who knows how hard this thing is gonna hit. 

The second thing we do comes after the storm as Colorado News Anchor Kyle Clark report ranted recently:

Why is it that every time it snows we whip out photos of our patio sets like we're showing off baby photos of our kids.

We all take the same pictures of our patio furniture covered in snow and we post them on Facebook or send them to Kyle Clark.

So let's see some photos that look like it next time it snows. Please. I'm begging you.

Kyle Clark may not want your snow covered patio furniture photos, but we at NHPR, do.  We love snow covered patio furniture and we love photos of snow covered patio furniture.  So if you have a photo of your snow covered patio furniture, we'd like you to send it to us at photos@nhpr.org.

Your photo will hang proudly in our snow covered patio furniture gallery as a testament to the subtle beauty of snow covered patio furniture. 

Check out the gallery (above) and tweets from listeners with pics, below:
