No. We got our total five days of rain, so quota met.
I will say though, that since trading in the body wash for home made salt scrubs, my super dry skin has been very nice. I literally do bathe in oil (well, shower anyway) and it makes a big difference.

What winter? :-P
It's Colorado, I don't think there is a drier than normal.

Ugh same here! My skin gets so dry I get red itchy blotches all over me until I rub a ridiculous amount of lotion on it! :/

Someone just told me CO folk are freaking out because there's no snow, I imagine that can't be good for business! But that you finally got a few inches this weekend.
I imagine that's not all of CO, but it was wherever my friends are headed to for the weekend to ski!

I think they are getting some snow up in the higher elevations, but it's pretty much like an extended warm fall. Most days are sunny & 50's or 60's all winter. We got a dusting this afternoon and that's maybe the 3rd time all winter? I haven't even used a coat this year. It's the second year in a row of this, but it's definitely worse this year which is scary considering how bad the wildfires were last summer!

I just shoveled 6 inches of heavy, wet snow with a -3 windchill. I'm moving to Colorado!!

Peaches- I've been using a ton of coconut oil this winter. This is my first winter of not using commercial lotions and trying to make my own. So far, I've had some good results
:)

Have you tried making the coconut oil body butter yet?

We could use some more moisture, but it hasn't been too dry here. We're supposed to get some snow Tuesday, I hope it is more than just a dusting this time.
