Don’t move to Denver unless you like snow in May

For those wanting to move to Denver, just now that it is May 9 and the temperature is just over freezing and it’s snowing. It’s been snowing since last night.

It's 38 degrees with snow flurries around
Current weather in the metro Demver area

Spring may show up someone, but we never know.

Oh. It could snow over Fourth of July weekend too. I’ve seen it happen.

The snow is coming, hopefully

The snow is coming Wednesday into Thursday. At least I’m hoping it does. It’s been awhile since we have had a big storm.

This is what Accuweather is predicting for my town.

Let’s hope this materializes.

Comcast, Get A Clue About Weather Warnings form the National Weather Service

Comcast,
Please get a clue about weather warnings!

Throughout the afternoon you have been sending out warnings on my television for a tornado warning. Which is fine, except if the warning is no where near where I live.

I live in Westminster, Colorado, while the warnings you are issuing are near Kiowa and Colorado Springs. That is about 60 miles as the crow flies.

Those warnings aren’t even close.

Not only are you stressing our family out, we are missing other things on television. The big thing was we missed the end of the Rockies game tonight.

If the technology from the National Weather Service can be there to tell us by part of a county we live in if there is severe weather, then you with addressable cable boxes should be able to determine if we live in a warning area and not send us the warnings that don’t apply to us.

Get some technology and start serving us appropriately.

I just took a look outside and saw some cool clouds.

I’m wondering when it will start raining. Looks like there is a lot of wind up there.

Spring in Colorado

You just got to love the weather in Colorado, particularly the spring weather.
This past week, it was in the low 70’s for a couple days, but from Thursday to Friday the temperatures dropped 35 degrees and we got about 6 inches of snow.

Well today the temps started warming up and now the snow is mostly melted. It will warm up to the 60’s but we are now into a pattern of rain/snow storms every 3-5 days.

One thing is for sure, this moisture will help green up the yards for summer.

You have to love Spring in Colorado.

Health advisory issued as smoke flows into Colorado – The Denver Post

Health advisory issued as smoke flows into Colorado – The Denver Post.
It is just plain nasty in Denver right now because of the smoke that is coming into the area because of the fires in Southern California.

The weather is just right and it is funneling all that smoke up here. When I was driving home from work, it was so bad it felt like it was dusk and the sun wasn’t setting for another couple of hours.

Hopefully it will clear up soon, but they are saying it won’t clear up until the weekend.

It is just plain nasty out right now.
