There aren't going to be any clouds, and because of that, it's going to be freezing.

It's a wonderful tradition! I've been watching these fireworks (when possible) since I was a little girl.

Anybody know if you can see the display from Smoky Hill in Arapahoe County? There's an unobstructed view of the summit of Pikes from the ridgeline, but the distance may be a bit far without binoculars.

I know I see Pikes Peak when I drive the toll road back from DIA. If the sky is clear and without cloud cover you should be able to see it, especially with binoculars.

We watch it every year, after watching Kathy Griffin work Anderson Cooper to a frazzle.

Couldn't pay me to go out on New Year's Eve, aka "amateur's night out" in the hospitality industry.
