  1. Wow this is late November early December right? And foot hills? Those are generally about 3000 feet or so at their highest elevation?

    Snow days already! Didnt they get the memo from Al? Winter is canceled lol.

  2. Snow in the foothills above Denver is not unusual for Oct. Their elevation starts around 6000 feet and with an upslope wind it can really dump.

  3. It also appears, from radar, to have snowed far out onto the plains of Colorado, not just the mountains, during the day. In early October.

    Meanwhile, in Montana, it’s not warm in any way shape or form. Today was the “warm” day. Upper 30s.

    Also, Popocatepetl has been erupting, not as insignificantly as they seem to suggest.

    Not sure why they feel the need to insist that there’s no connection between seismic and volcanic activity at all times. Scientific mystery, and possibly misguided.
