On the day before first day of Fall

it snowed here.

To be precise, it snowed east, south and west of Denver, but not in Denver proper and some of the outlying towns like mine. I didn't get snow here, but the foothills and the mountains got some.

As I understand it, this is very unusual for Denver - we usually have warm-to-hot, dry weather until November, then it drops to the typical winter temperatures. The real snow doesn't come until late winter/early spring.

Is it one of the global warming symptoms? Who the hell knows? In one of the more recent bouts of global warming, Europe had a mini ice age, during the 1300s and 1400s. Don't ask me how it works - apparently even though the global average temperature rises, some regions of the world can experience extreme cold.

In snowed while it was technically still summer. Freaky.
