According to Moderator cut: link to a competitors site removed, Denver has harsh winters. But then again it says Denver has cool summers.

I found something for LBear:

Along the Front Range, where Denver and Colorado Springs are located, summer days are hot and dry, and evenings mild. Humidity is low, and temperatures seldom rise above the 90s (30s Celsius). Evenings start to get cooler by mid-September, but even as late as November the days are often warm. Surprisingly, winters here are warmer and less snowy than winters in the Great Lakes or New England.

Arctic, really? I don't understand how you can...

...sorry about that, I had to chase another damn penguin from my front lawn.

You mention in another post that Denver winters compare to Midwest winters and I totally disagree. Much colder due to the humidity, cold/wet snow that lasts a lot longer and is more frequent. And, it is 6 degrees in Cleveland today and it is forecasted to be 55 tomorrow. Time for you to hop on the Cleveland forum and bombard them with your non-sense.

They are really doing damage to the glacier in my back yard.

I'm heading to Boston for the holidays and I will be very happy to come back to the milder winters of Colorado!

Bet they're not as bad as the polar bears frolicking on my ice floes. . .

I appreciate the offer but, I have to spend tonight fixing the entrance to my snowcave. Maybe another night, I could have my sled dogs swing by your place on my way home from work.
