The Arctic Express

They say if you don't like the weather in Colorado, wait 5 minutes. A bit of hyperbole, perhaps, but with temperatures plummeting 20 degrees in 30 minutes today, it isn't that far from the truth!

Here is a sequence of photos taken over four hours by Chris Nie, a student at CU Boulder.

It was 56 outside when I left the house this morning. 
It was 34 three hours later. 
It is 13 12 10 now, with some light snow.

Now, that's cold!

  3. It is one of the reasons I love Colorado. When I left the house yesterday morning, it was 59* and sunny. By the time I got to my appointment an hour later, it was 29* and sleety. The temperature plummeted by 30* in an hour - so much for "easing" into winter :)


What thoughts do you have?
