We headed to Winter Park, Colorado with Tony's HS Band kids, for a Ski Music Festival. We road a chartered bus up from Texas to Colorado, straight through, in about 14 hours. Upon arrival, about 6:30am, we dressed for skiing then headed to the resort for ski rental, then hit the slopes. At 4:30pm, the kids had a little break before heading out to dinner and then their contest performance at 9pm. What a long and busy 32 hours!
Getting ready to go
After very little sleep on a bus for 14 hours, we're at Winter Park!!
The snow has started! 2 feet predicted this weekend!
Saturday, we skied some more, then kids prepped for the awards ceremony and street dance in downtown winter park.
Just as we arrived for the events, I got a call from our security company that there was an alarm at our 5ver. Since we had made arrangements for the cats to be fed, I first worried the sitter had set it off. But she had been there much earlier in the day.
I checked the email/text, they send when an "event" happens -- I didn't hear them come in since we were giving instructions to the kids before they left the bus.
The email/text say exactly which sensor was triggered, and this was reported as the off-door side basement compartment.
We decided to go ahead and let them dispatch the Sheriff's Department to check on the rig, just in case it really was broken into.
Tony also contacted the owner of the park to let him know.
There was a quick response from both the owner and Sheriff, that the door was indeed still locked and did not appear breached. Whew! Tense moments there for a bit!
After the awards and (cut short) street dance due to tons of snow falling, we headed back to the hotel. Cisco took home an "excellence award" trophy and "best in class runner/up" trophy.
Sunday we were up early to hit the road back to Texas. The bus had to be equipped with chains due to another 13" of snowfall. We pulled out about 8:20am Mountain time, and made it back to the school about 12:20am Central time.
I checked Monday morning, and sure enough, the basement door was locked. But the sensor had fallen off inside, creating an "open" notification. I re-attached and secured it even better.
Now back to regularly scheduled programming....
