I'm literally laughing to myself. Sorry, guys, but Denver isn't "hot".


I want you guys to try something with me. Ready? Ok. Picture a nice, crisp, 70 degree Fall day. Can you feel the chill? Now, step outside and feel your current 96 degree high right now. Quite the difference between 70 and 96, eh? I mean, its a monstrous difference!


Now, take that same 26 degree difference in feel, and stack that on TOP of your 96 degree current temperature and that will put you somewhere around a mid-June Phoenix afternoon (on the extreme end).


So, yeah, Denver isn't really "hot".

Of course it's not hot like Phoenix is hot. Just like when people in warmer climes complain that it's "cold" when it gets below 40. It works both ways.

Compared to previous years IN DENVER, it has been reasonably mild this year (with a few exceptions).

I think I can count on both hands the number of days we've run the AC this year. The number of times it's been on overnight? Zero.

Right, but wouldn't you have a chuckle if you popped on to PHX's forum and saw a thread titled "It is COLD" and saw that it was 50 degrees here?


That's all I'm sayin.

Looks like second half of September will feature highs in the 70s here. Just checked Dallas, it will be in the low 90s (with who knows what amount of humidity) during the same time period.

Does it ever hit 90 in October? I would not be very happy if that happened.

There are only 3 days in the month of October where the record high is 90 or above. Can it happen? Sure, but it's very unlikely.

"Does it ever.... " is not a phrase to use in Colorado when discussing weather.

Whatever "it" is..? It just might.
