El tiempo es loco

The weather in Colorado, and the US for the most part, has been crazy.  Coming off the Arctic cold front a few weeks ago, Colorado received around 3 feet of snow over a week period.  The I-70 corridor resorts were prime, and I was able to experience some great powder at Vail, Monarch, and Mary Jane.  Shortly there after, a pineapple express comes through and proceeds to warm Colorado up into the 60's.  For the past 4 days I have been climbing in shorts and wearing sandals (Shelf, located in Canon City, is a great winter climbing destination).  What is going on?  I'm not going to complain though,  I feel pretty fortunate to be able to experience the best of both worlds.
