Oh man. I am not ready for Christmas. I’m usually kind of a scrooge, but this year…
I looked at the weather report yesterday and it said it would be under freezing for 36 hours or so. So I went ahead and half winterized the evaporative cooler and the sprinklers. It’s going to be 90 by the end of the week, so I left it assembled so I can just turn the water back on. I’m sure the underground sprinklers will be fine, but I wanted to blow out the backflow converter just in case.
I guess it was 100F in Denver on Saturday, so if it snows there today, it will be the shortest time between 100F and snow (previous record was South Dakota with 5 days).
It did snow a little here, just a dusting. And it’s definitely below freezing, but the furnace hasn’t turned on yet.
I’m used to having high speed weather, and surprise early/late snow storms. But this is just wild.
