The winter weather in Denver is downright cold and frigid.
- Average snow days range from four to six days each week.
My family and I live on the outskirts of Denver and the winter storms can be brutal. We often experience blizzard conditions like heavy wind gusts and extreme amounts of snow. The altitude in Denver is one mile above sea level, and much higher than other major cities in the country. It’s one of the reasons for our unique climate and heavy winter accumulation. When the weather turns colder, I give the furnace a thorough cleaning and examination. Denver is one of the coldest cities during winter, and you cannot live comfortably without a furnace, boiler, or fireplace. The gas furnace gets a routine cleaning and inspection by a local professional. The winter temperatures aren’t an issue with a good heating source. I’ve lived here for 40 years and I wouldn’t want to live anywhere else. The city is filled with fun and exciting activities, bars, restaurants, and parks. When the weather isn’t snowy and cold, I take the kids to the city to enjoy some of the outdoor attractions that are absolutely free of charge. Red rocks is a nice place to have a picnic and go hiking and if we want to stay indoors we go to the children’s museum. With three children, I have to think about money and budget for the day. One activity can cost two hundred dollars by the time we pay for parking, the activity, and lunch or dinner. It’s nice that Denver offers some family fun activities that don’t cost a dime.
