Yes, it snows a lot in the mountains, even in June.

Arapahoe Basin is already open until the 30th of June. I'm hoping this will extend their season so that they're open in the 4th of July and maybe the 7th!

I was just at Hannagan Meadow, AZ. It was 60 degrees. I actually had to put on a sweater.

It's 79 in Prescott Valley. Just remember: If it's unseasonably hot, it's global warming; if it's unseasonably cool, that's just weather.

Colorado is unseasonably cool because the Arctic is unseasonably warm and is pushing its air south from Canada.

It's almost like the climate is changing...imagine that.
 
2019-06-21 10:04:13 PM  
SEE! IT WUZ COLD SO WHAR GLOBAL WARMING LIBZ?!

/People actually think this.

So much for that global warming bullshiat.

Welcome to Fark. Where even the weather is political.

It's pretty nice here in Seattle. I'm at a course out near the foothills of the Cascades and it's a beautiful day at the driving range.

People who live in Florida brag about warm weather, but complain about tropical storms/hurricanes. People who live in Colorado brag about cool mountain air....

I can't think of a single region that doesn't get thumped by weather occasionally. Even you, San Diego.

You live in a sad place,subs.
 
2019-06-21 10:30:00 PM  
And by that, I mean it ain't Colorado.

I was stationed at Buckley AFB for my last year in the Air Force. I remember a two week span during the summer of having a tornado warning every single day, and that it snowed on the last day of summer.

Colorado weather will do whatever the hell it wants.

Mom sez pizza rolls r up.

Avoid the refrigerated food aisle, where dangers lurk.

I like Blizzards in the summer. The M&M ones are my favorite.

They unfortunately closed the good stuff weeks ago. At this point it's just two lifts and a handful of easy runs. Cool for the novelty value of skiing in June, though.

It's been pretty wet lately, but I'll take the Denver rain over PA rain every time

Subs here. I lived in Colorado for 17 years. It was like any other place; pros and cons and regional quirks.

I lived in Portland for several years. It was a lot like Seattle weather-wise: months of dreary rain with just enough days of weather so beautiful it was worth it.

Every place I've ever lived has that joke about "If you don't like the weather in Wherever, wait five minutes and it'll change." The only place that was actually true was Kansas.

Colorado sucks. There are so many better places worth moving to for anyone thinking of it.

It takes a special type of person to live up here. If you can't handle the dark and cold, it's a terrible and depressing place to live. For those that love it, though, there isn't any other place to live in the world.

A few weeks back on one of our hottest days (90+), I was watching a news report of a race to Ketchikan and the reporter in Alaska was standing on a dock in the drizzle and all I could think was that I'd rather be there in that gloom than the hot sun we were getting at the time.

Snowstorm≠blizzard.

It was 85 degrees yesterday in Fairbanks AK, and it looks like another hot one today.

Yep. I've lived in Colorado some 40 years and it's an absolute hell hole. No one should move here.

When we'd camp in the Rockies in summer we would always bring winter clothes.  The weather can change quickly.   I'm sure there are tourists at Rocky Mountain national park that are shivering in their shorts, shorts short sleves, and sandles today!

It's okay that you're jealous.  We here in Colorado are used to your kind.

Ow! That was my feelings!: [Fark user image 622x414]


Hey if there's anyplace that lives up to the saying, "If you don't like the weather, wait fifteen minutes." It's Colorado
 
2019-06-22 9:03:57 PM  
Been snowing and freezing here lately too. First day of summer, yay.

Yes, I've heard it everywhere. Montana is pretty good for it too.

Way back in 1976, my sister and I had a snowball fight in July, in Rocky Mountain National Park. I'm not surprised at snow falling above 10,000' in the least.

Riiiiight. "Please don't move to Colorado! It's horrible here!"
