Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

Summer in Denver, and it's hot, hot, hot. So are the responses to Bree Davies's "Top five: Stop whining and enjoy the summer already."

And in his comment, Desert Badass added fuel to the ire with this:

It's 116 in Phoenix Arizona so quit your sniveling you Colorado Pussies.

Responds Mountain Man Rebel:

Come out to Denver in January, you so-called "badass". Like your buddy "5 finger", you ain't tough enough to handle real weather. Snuggle up in your transplant town with your grammy who moved there in '82 from Michigan.

With another 100 degree day bearing down on us, are you longing for January's weather? Post your thoughts below.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
