Friday night we went to a Cubs game at Coors Field. It was a long walk in thin air (elevation 5280 ft.) but made it OK. Cubs prevailed in a cold rain. The scoreboard showed 37 degrees but Cubs bats were hot! Final was Cubs 16 and Rockies 5. Local news station called the Rockies “embarrassed” by the Cubs.

Woke up Saturday morning to a light dusting of snow, but the reporting went on, snow or no snow. Looked nice to someone from the south. Snow lasted most of the day in 39 degrees.

By Sunday afternoon the sun had returned and the temperature was in the 60s. No chance to get back to Coors Field, cheap seats gone. Cubs won on Sunday and split the series 2 games to 1.
