Winter Rockies by Eva Lanier

Dear Alum,

Another snowstorm has draped the Flatirons in white, and it’s heavily overcast. But as you well know, it’ll be warmer and sunny soon.

If you’ve moved or changed e-mail addresses, let us know! And don’t forget, you can always find the latest on CU happenings at
