Quick Snowstorm hits Denver and the Frontrange

This is how the campus looked today after a quick snow storm that hit Denver. I was lucky leaving early for work just ahead of an more intense storm then expected. Meterologist predicted .5 inches of snow but in less then 2 hours over 3 inches of the white stuff was dumped on the ground causing quite a mayhem on the roads. Some of my students who left late took over 2 hours for a drive that normally takes only 25 minutes.

Open House

This weekend we had another open house at Johnson & Wales and with the help of some student volunteers I produced a range of Asian Starters. I also had interested students for a hands-on intro in the kitchen. they were producing Sushi and Vietnamese Springrolls. We do at least 6 open house events during the year where students and parents get to visit the university. Attached are some pictures from Saturday

We all discovered that it is much harder for the first 2 days to snowboard then skiing. However we all had a great time. here are some pictures of Bonnie and Samuel on a snowboard
