Just like I remembered

You know how when you're growing up, you have certain memories of how a certain place is or the way certain things happen? I've always told people two things about the Colorado weather:

1) It never snows on Christmas. It always snows around Halloween.
2) There is no predicting it. It could be 80 degrees one day, 20 degrees the next.

These 2 facts are pretty irrefutable amongst Colorado natives. The last week has once again borne this out.

Pictures taken on Monday 10/24. Temperature: 79 degrees

Note the shorts & t-shirt on J. Also note how he still looks like a lollipop from a distance, all big round head and stick legs.

Picture taken on Wednesday 10/26. Temperature: 32 degrees

Expected temperature this weekend: 61 degrees.

O Colorado, I missed you :)

Ask your mother about the Christmas Eve blizzard of '82. You were probably too young to remember it but she probably does. I know that we were snowed in for several days. Which as you noted is pretty unusual in Denver because It can be 72 the day after a big storm. And snow just doesn't stay on the ground like it does where I live now because the sun comes out and it evaporates even if the temp stays low.
