Cold Snap

This is part of a weekly series published fresh on Thursday mornings. 


This fall in Colorado has been unseasonably warm, save for the record-breaking cold snap that slammed the Front Range in mid-November. But the seemingly never-ending seasons shouldn’t be surprising. Most climate scientists agree that as average temperatures continue to rise, the seasons will grow longer.
