While we aren’t exactly “paperless” in our office, we are definitely “paper-less” — using a lot less paper than we used to. We encourage our customers to communicate by email, and with online payments available, neither of us has to print out a piece of paper. We used to go through a ream of paper every week. Now, we barely use four reams per year. I like that.
Winter road hazards are not restricted to snow and ice. Travelers on East-bound I-70 in the Floyd Hill area need to be aware of morning sun glare, which can be blinding. According to CDOT:
From early November through early February, morning drivers can encounter a blinding sun glare as they head eastbound up Floyd Hill (mile 244 to 247 – east of Idaho Springs). The glare occurs from approximately 7 a.m. until 8:30 a.m. However, it is especially severe between 7:30 a.m. and 8 a.m. The problem is created by the sun’s angle during the late fall and early winter, in combination with the hill and the highway’s configuration through the area.
