Rosehip hunting in Alderfer

It's -14 here. No wonder vogonpoet calls it Coldorado.

Shortly after leaving Himself's grandmother's, I noted the temperature at 5° (-15° Celsius. We joked about how the cloud cover made the car dealership sprawl near 6th and I-70 look like Denver normally does from various points around Evergreen. We went through the clouds between Lookout Mountain and Genesee and boggled at how much colder it was in downtown Evergreen -- -14° (-25°C)! It's usually only 5-10 degrees cooler up here.

Adding to the confusion, Dad came in a few minutes ago and said it was still -14° downtown, but it was actually _colder_ in Denver when he left work a half hour earlier.
