It is almost 70 degrees today…are you sure it’s February?

As we enter into the month of love with record high temperatures Longs Insurance wants to remind you that while it might be hot for this time of year there is still plenty of winter fun to be had.

While today is the last day of The Steamboat Winter Carnival there are plenty more events planned for people who enjoy winter in the mountains.

If you haven’t had a chance to throw on your ice skates this winter there is still time.  Enjoy the excitement of the city while gliding with your friends around the ice rink.

If ice palaces are more your speed then don’t slow down, head on up to Cripple Creek Colorado for the Ice Festival coming up next weekend.

And for those of you who are less traditional in your Valentines Day activities there are plenty of great ways to spend this special day.  For the runners among us, nothing really says I love you like a 5 or 10K.  The course of love is a local favorite, check out all the runs going on at:

If the only heat you are looking for on the 14th is from a piping hot bowl of gumbo then you are all set with a short trip to Manitou Springs for the Mumbo Gumbo cook-off.

Whatever you choose to do, be safe and enjoy the unseasonable weather and this fantastic state!!!

In my next life I want to be a cork

We had the opportunity to go to a wine tasting in Larimer Square. During the Valentines Day season does anything say love more completely than a nice bottle of wine?
