charging the tesla
One of the most frequent questions is “How long does it take to charge a Tesla?” and the answer is “That depends on the charger.” Here at the Pitkin County Public Works charger (across from the airport between the animal shelter and the bus barn) the charge is 20 miles per hour. At the Rio Grande parking lot in Aspen it’s 28 miles per hour. At the supercharger in Glenwood Springs it’s 280 miles per hour. We looooooove the supercharger.
It’s turning into a trend – and a nice one at that.

Winterskol?” my riders ask. Literally it’s “a toast to Winter” but really- it’s a little party we cooked up for that January lull right after Christmas.
“Cooking”-which brings me to my favorite Winterskol event:
Our local restaurants get together and compete for the best soup. The public votes with orange spoons in soup kettles. (Let me tell you green chili makes a lovely handwarmer on a cold evening.)
Here’s our Winterskol King and Queen
Tom and Jody Cardamone judging the soup (using sorbet as a palette cleanser between spoonfuls)
This year’s winner was
Meat and Cheese with a coconut based soup which made us all think of taking time out on the beach.
Don’t miss the snow carving on the mall…
…. actually I think the “leftovers” make a great snowball fort
While the car was charging in the public garage yesterday I decided to visit one of my favorite places in Aspen. After al,l it’s not only the car which needs the batteries recharged.
