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.

  1. big hail! I've heard of it--but here in NYC we rarely get hail bigger than peas (OK, full sized peas, not petite pois--but not that big!

    We've been having a heat wave, and right now, hail (or rain!) would be welcome (not till the weekend)

    at 5 am it was already in the mid 80°--and today's hi is likely 100°.

  2. I have heard about crazy summer weather in Colorado too. My brother-in-law used to live there and could be nutty! But ahhhh, we'd love to be in Colorado right now! Now I must go check out Mike the Headless Chicken! :) Thanks for your comment on my blog too!
