sunshine in Denver

As a third generation native of Denver, I've always been proud of its climate. I remember the almost never too hot days, the cool nights, the snow melting the next day in bright sunshine. I heard, and bragged to others, that Denver gets 300 days of sunshine a year.

Well, it turns out that that was a myth propagated by the early railroads, eager to lure people to Colorado. In fact, I learned only recently, Denver has about 250 days with sun and only 115 truly sunny days. Those numbers are still high, just not mind-boggling. It's still a wonderful place.
