The picture to the left has been taken Friday morning before the student drove to college. The picture to the right has been taken Saturday morning from the student's window against west just before sunrise. The picture below has been taken while my aunt was talking with her daughter Anne-Grethe from LA.

The panorama picture above has been taken Sunday on my way down from a real American bornhardt around 3 miles from my apartment. It was a nice experience to meet these deer. The panorama picture below has been taken from the top of the inland island (bornhardt) against north. My apartment is placed just behind the hill.

March one of the Snowiest Months on Front Range

March one of the Snowiest Months on Front Range

Forecasts for our vacation in the US, 2002

Friday, March 1, 2002, I read this topic in the news Rocky Mountain News and tried to found out what exactly the meaning was for "Front Range", but I didnít succeeded.

The News continued, "Weather over Colorado begins to change in March to a more unsettled pattern, as snowstorms become more common. On average, March is the snowiest month of the year along the Front Range." Maybe they mean along the range of the Rocky Mountains? Denver typically receives about 12.5 inches (31.72 cm) of snow during the month. The snowiest March on record was in 1944, when 32.5 inches (82,55 cm) of snow fell.

Temperatures begin a slow climb toward spring. Normal high temperatures during the first two weeks of March hover around the 50-degree Fahrenheit mark, with mid-50s expected toward the end of the month. 55 degrees Fahrenheit is 12,8 degrees Celsius.

Low temperatures also slowly increase, with normal low temperatures in the upper 20ís at the end of March. Temperatures can reach into the 70s, and there have a few instances of high temperature reaching the lower 80s. 70-80-degrees Fahrenheit is 21-27 degree Celsius. The warmest March day in Denver was 84 degrees on March 26, 1971.

March 21 the sunrise will be at 6:01 AM, and the sunset will be 6:13 PM. The normal high temperature will be 53 degrees Fahrenheit (11.7 degrees Celsius), and the normal low temperature will be 25 degrees Fahrenheit (3.9 degrees Celsius). Record from 1995 is 78 degrees Fahrenheit (25.6 degrees Celsius), and the record for the lowest temperature from 1912 is 0 degree Fahrenheit (-17.8 degrees Celsius). Let us hope for a new high temperature record in 2002 and no low temperatures.

Friday, March 1, 2002, the new moon will be half the way to full, which we will have Friday 29 when we reach Greenville by Mississippi River.
