This weather report is from my high school classmate (Colorado Springs
HS) whose studio is near the convention center. I had asked her about
inversion because I am really looking forward to several days of good
mountain air and I know Denver sometimes has air quality problems. Her
response is below.
When I think of Denver I have a vision of my young grandfather on his
weekly trek on horseback from one side of Denver to the other. He
wrote home that Denver is so large it takes me all day to ride
horseback from one side to the other. He lived to see a modern Denver
and he would shake his head and repeat the horseback story ;<)
