It's cold and snowy here today in Denver. The most interesting that happened was watching a very shallow Denver Cyclone swirl the low clouds around. Meanwhile, Verne Carlson was above the low clouds enjoying the sun. Seems unfair!
The snow began on Friday and has only given us a dusting over the last few days. It is definitely much colder than it has been. Thursday (the 22nd) was our last real nice day and I enjoyed the evening at Washington Park with a couple of friends. Here are a few photos from that evening.
Currently in the tropics:
The area of disturbed weather I mentioned yesterday has in fact become at tropical cyclone off of the northwest coast of Australia.
