Colorado has seen calm weather state-wide today with warm temperatures and mostly sunny skies. Today has been a complete 180 from what we saw on this day in metro Denver one year ago today.
On May 8, 2017 metro Denver experienced Colorado's most costly catastrophe on record which ended up being the second costliest hailstorm in the United States. This hailstorm brought up to baseball sized hail to the northwest side of town causing 2.3 billion dollars of damage.
Here's some photos of the aftermath:
