It was sunny, calm and pleasant when I walked out the door this morning. Then as I turned the corner, BAM! The winds picked up, leaves swirled under a black sky, the clouds started spitting rain and then it turned into SNOW! A 64 mph gust was recorded at Denver International Airport and a 75 mph gust at Chatfield Reservoir. The UPS guy said the wind blew the packages off his dolly and he had to run after them. An hour later, Denver was fine again.
