In Colorado, we like to brag about the weather--400 days of sunshine a year, yada yada yada. Yesterday in Denver, on the 4th of freakin' July, it rained and hailed like nobody's business and everybody is shocked. HELLO! The weather on the 4th of July is crappy 99.9% of the time. We save the good weather for September and October, after the summer tourists have gone home, and before the ski tourists get here. Instead of sunny skies and fireworks, we rake in the tourist $$$'s with stuff like Rocky Mountain oysters and Mike the Headless Chicken. Then there's that frozen dead guy. Disneyland's got nothing on Colorado, I tell ya! I'd love to hear about the sophisticated happenings in your state. Send me links and let's see who can peg the meter on the Crazy Tourist Attractions scale.
