What do you know about chinook winds? According to the pseudoscience of adiabatic heating, chinooks occur when momentum forces warm winds down the slopes of the Rocky Mountains, significantly increasing temperatures in their wake (or something like that. I suspect a Santa Claus-Mother Nature team is involved).
Yesterday, the high temperature was below freezing. Then, a chinook blew through and today, it’s 50! The roads are all muddy slush and the sun’s beaming down like a proud parent. Nice one, Rockies! You’re my fav! ❤
On a side note, I accidentally spit on my shoe during my run today because I was distractedly luxuriating in sunlight.
