As the Colorado weather does what it does in October. Fluctuating from snow on Monday to 80 degrees on the front range today, it seems that everyone is heading into their storage to dust off the ski gear. And if the weather isn’t signal enough the announcement of the annual Colorado bluegrass festival WinterWonderGrass surely will get everyone ready for the slopes, the cold, and the finest music.
