Land of Extremes

Before I forget, I need to offer a quick illustration of my new exciting weather life here in Denver for those checking in from elsewhere:

Last Saturday, it was 74 friggin' degrees in Denver. Picture scores of people running around in shorts, showing off their pasty white legs, and delirious with joy. The freakish warmth of the day actually broke records. In nearby Washington Park, it looked like this:

Come Sunday, this is what it looked like from my balcony:

Duly noted in the Denver Post headline: "Sun screen Saturday, snow shovels Sunday"

March: In like a lamb, out like a lion - all in one weekend. 'Twas the best of both worlds - I LOVED IT.

Swear on my life, I remember it snowing very lightly in June once, too. It was about 10 years ago, and I remember standing on my balcony at the Breakers Apt's thinking, "I have a helluva hangover, I guess". But indeed, we had a touch of snow in June.
