We get a couple days over 90ºF/32ºC and I loose all interest in doing anything. I do love the heat, though—far better than snow!
The Colorado Front Range has been subject to record high temperature [>100 deg_F] recently. And there are those forest fires.We had guests Wednesday pm through Sunday am. To beat the heat we sought higher elevations; this allowed me to visit / enjoy:o Estes Park Brewery [& restaurant], Estes Park, 7500 ft. elev.o Oskar Blue Grill & Brew, Lyons, 5400 ft. elev.o Tommyknocker Brewery [& restaurant], Idaho Springs, 7500 ft. elev.There are another 03 brewpubs above 9000 feet less than 30 minutes west of the I-70 Eisenhower-Johnson Memorial Tunnel which is 90 minutes west of Denver.Rick Bragg wrote, in one of his several humorous books about life in NE Alabama, that it is so hot in the summer in the South that if anything breaks you wait until September to repair it.
Jack you win. It was so hot in Colorado, the state caught on fire.
