Dear Denver: October 5th Is Too Early For The First Snow Of The Year

Dear Denver: I just wanted to write and let you know that October 5th is way too early to be having the first snow of the year. Halloween I could understand, but October 5th is just ridiculous. Please be more careful in future.

Now, I realize that it was only a dusting. I also realize that it didn’t collect on the streets or sidewalks, merely getting a bit on the lawns and roofs, but still. I don’t think that is any excuse for this kind of inattention to detail. There are seasons for a reason. Please do not jumble climactic administration like this again.

I mean, if you wanted to make a little snow…why not think of the mountains? There are plenty in the area. A bit of the white stuff up there wouldn’t have even been noticed. You could get away with that sort of thing anytime. Heck, people might have even been happy about that sort of thing. Snow on October 5th within city limits, however, is clearly a mistake.

Perhaps you just thought you could get a jump on winter and no one would notice. Perhaps city administration has gotten a bit harried as of late and this was just a slip. Regardless, it was noticed and it was not appreciated. It just looks sloppy.

We’ll let it slide this time, but please be more careful in future. Please wait until at least the end of October before letting the first snow of the season fly. October 5th is simply too early. Thank you.
