    Heavy snow is not unusual for Colorado mnts. this time of year, but the temps in Denver will be in the low 50’s for several days and that is unusual.

    Anybody else see the irony in this ?

    Why does the National Weather service feel the need to yell with all caps?

    Heavy snow in this area of Colorado now can’t be too unusual. Back in ’75, in early June I remember driving up the Front Range behind Colorado Springs in heavy snow. albeit at 7-8000 ft.

    • Wayne Dunham says:

      I agree with your statement Ed… I would also think that snow in this area of Colorado isn’t unusual at all… As a young man during June of 1967 and even in August of 1970 I saw snow all across the state of Colorado.

      • Ernest Bush says:

        That was back when the Warmists were all Koolists. We were all going to freeze instead of becoming crispy.

        • Wayne Dunham says:

          Well then Earnest… Shouldn’t the weather be getting cold again like it was in the 70s? Well for now it is snowing in Colorado. So maybe soon we’ll begin seeing it snow through the summer like back then. I’d also like to have an exciting winter down here where I live, like the ones we used to have during that time.

    I guess this means the Overlook Hotel is still snowed in :) …….(The Shining
