    • I lived in Bozeman and Belgrade Montana for over 38 years. Just about every other year it would snow around the end of Aug. or first week in Sept. This is not unusual. I have even seen it snow in June and July. Not a big deal. Yes there is climate change every year. The sun spot activity going dark is a concern for the next few decades.

  2. Great News!! Hope snow and cold will continuously come in entire northern hemisphere and everyone will get Lots of blast of Arctic cold and lots of snowstorms. Let’s pray together and this thing will become reality.

  3. Here’s the weekend forecast for metro Denver

    97
    97
    97 (Labor Day)
    36 with 3-5 inches of snow. (Tues)

    Even for CO, this is a bit extreme.

  4. I can’t get my mind around 90F or more on Monday in Denver and then snow on Tuesday. What a shock to the system!
