Denver’s streak of days without measurable snowfall ends at 65, five days shy of record

Whether or not it feels like real snow in your heart is entirely different matter.

Last night’s dusting of snow was just enough to officially end Denver’s more than two-month run without measurable snow.

The National Weather Service’s Boulder office recorded 0.4 inches at Denver International Airport.

Not much, but it counts.

The streak without measurable snow lasted 65 days, from Oct. 10 to Dec. 13. That’s the fourth-longest streak in Denver ever, behind 69 days in 2002-03, 68 days in 1905-06 and 67 days in 1962.

So there you have it. Science says we got real snow. Whether or not it feels like real snow in your heart is entirely different matter.
