DENVER -- The weather outside is definitely not frightful. In fact, it is downright wonderful for early March.

While we haven’t even switched time zones yet, the weather is just plain old doing what it wants.

One day, 30s with cold, chilling winds, the next suitable for hammocks in the park, which we ran into over in Cheesman Park Monday.

“We did a music festival in the mountains, so we thought, let’s do the hammock and gaze at the peaks over the park,” said Kyle Robinson.

Most eateries around town with patios saw outdoor seating filled. And in every park we drove through, people were playing with pets and kids; some were even having pre-spring picnics in the midday sun.

One woman drove her scooter to City Park just to read a book and get some rays.

“This is one of the only places I know where you can sun one day and head up into the hills and slap on a board,” said Kyrsty Bosse.

And at Water Works, on 3rd and Broadway, it was as if everyone wanted to get dirt and grime off their cars on the same day.

Rich Lewis saying they did about 1,200 cars a day and Monday stacked up for an even busier day.

“We got them coming in at a near record pace!”

It was just a warm day in the Rockies, before snow returns Wednesday.
