This April has proven to be drastically different compared to last year – all thanks to the snow.

Last April was the driest in Colorado history due to a lack of moisture and precipitation.

At this time last year, Colorado firefighters had just wrapped up the Lower North Fork Fire in Jefferson County and were nearly a month away from battling the High Park Fire in Larimer County.

Regardless of the snow, Poudre Fire Authority is still expecting more fires in the upcoming season.

Hot and dry weather combined with wind can quickly wipe out the moisture Larimer County has recently received.

Nolan Arenado got his first hit in the major leagues and then added two more hits, including a homerun and starting pitcher Tyler Chatwood pitched six scoreless innings as the Colorado Rockies defeated the Los Angeles Dodgers convincingly 12-2 Monday night in Los Angeles.

Arenado had over 30 family members in the stands to witness him put on a show and did they ever get to see a show as the Rockies banged out 19 hits, a new record for them at Dodger Stadium.

Colorado jumped all over the Dodgers from the get go as Dexter Fowler hit a homerun to lead off the ball game and the Rockies followed that up with single by Jordan Pacheco, a double by Carlos Gonzalez, and then a three run bomb by Wilin Rosario, giving the Rockies a 4-0 lead after one inning.

The Rockies continued to pile on the damage in the fourth inning when Chatwood tallied his third hit of the ball game with a 2-run single up the middle giving the Rockies a 8-0 lead at the time.

Colorado improved its record on the season to 16-10 overall and moved one game ahead of the Arizona Diamondbacks for the National League West Division lead. The Dodgers fell to 12-13 with the loss.

Colorado will be back at it again tomorrow against Los Angeles as the two square off in the second of a three game set at Dodger Stadium.  Jorge De La Rosa will be on the mound for the Rockies and the first pitch is set to be thrown at 8:10 MT.

Stephen Curry scored 22 of his 31 points in a spectacular third quarter, propelling the Golden State Warriors past the Denver Nuggets by a score of 115-101 to take a shocking 3-1 series lead over the number three-seeded Nuggets on Sunday night.

Jarret Jack, a player who only started a handful of games during the regular season, got another postseason start on Sunday and continued his great play dropping 21 points and recording 9 assists, while Carl Landry added 17 points off the bench for the Warriors who have received contributions from nearly everyone who has toed the court in this series.

Andrew Bogut may have had the biggest impact for Golden State early on in this game as he broke out for 12 points and 5 rebounds in the first half, including a posterizing dunk on Nuggets Center JaVale McGee.

The sixth-seeded Warriors are now just one game away from closing out the Nuggets and can do so on Tuesday night in Game 5 in Denver.

One of the big trends emerging in this series is the Warriors extremely high shooting percentage as once again they shot lights out from the field (55.7 percent) compared to the Nuggets (46.5 percent).

The Warriors have also taken complete control of the momentum in the series, which is surprising because they lost their top rebounder and best post threat in David Lee in Game 1 of the series due to a hip injury and Curry suffered an ankle injury in Game 2 and even got poked in the eye in the latter part of this game by Nuggets forward Corey Brewer.

Ty Lawson lead the Nuggets with 26 points and Andre Iguodala had 19. The Nuggets also turned the ball over 23 times and went just 6-20 from beyond the arc.

Fresh vegetables are important components of a healthy diet. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

I recently watched a documentary called Hungry for Change. It’s a film about healthy, natural eating and what effects it can have on a person’s lifestyle.

I’d like to start by saying that my friends and I watch a lot of documentaries, like A LOT. If you have Netflix, you’ll understand. Over my many viewings I’ve learned various things about the film industry, sushi, war, and food, but Hungry for Change is the first documentary that has truly inspired me to make a change in my life.

I’m not an unhealthy person – I’m not overweight, I don’t eat a lot of junk food or sugar, and soda is not a part of my diet. The lifestyle change outlined in the film isn’t about weight for me. It’s about putting things in my body that will help my energy, skin, and organs in the long-run.

The diet idea that the film presents is that people should not eat any foods that have additives and chemicals. All foods we consume should be found naturally in the wild. If there’s an ingredient you can’t pronounce, it doesn’t belong in your body. This is how our bodies were made to eat, so why shouldn’t we honor that?

Hungry for Change reveals secrets that the food industry doesn’t want you to know, such as addictive food additives. Many people crave sugar or salt on a weekly, or even daily, basis. That’s because some companies put in artificial ingredients that act like nicotine to make you want more. The reality is, if we stop eating those foods, our body will quickly learn to live without them and we will stop craving them.

The film interviews people who have survived cancer and obesity due to changing their diet. As I said before, I’m not unhealthy, but I do get frequent headaches and bouts of stress. The documentary explains that when people are stressed, they tend to eat. That is the opposite of what a person should do to control stress levels.

The fact is, there are a lot of stresses in our world today. Our country is in constant fear of being bombed, our economy is still at a halt, and school work piles up to an uncontrollable level. In our world today, stress is all around us. By eating natural, organic foods, you can be sure that whatever you’re putting into your body is helping your overall health and wellbeing.
