Looking at the weather map, you can see the traditional
Front Range rain shadow stretching
from Ft Morgan to Limon and beyond (temperature gradients). When you are flying
across the Plains westbound you can see the ground going from green to brown
(or brown to browner) right along that line. You will also enjoy some
interesting turbulence and virga for a few minutes. The combination of a strong mountain wave
mixed with summer convection updrafts makes for busy bars at DIA as arriving
passengers sooth their nerves.
As usual, people complain about the weather but nobody does anything about it. Today we can say the econazis are trying. Too bad they have their heads up their asses. Their agenda is people control, not weather control IMO.
