But Denver’s snowfall pattern might be the most unusual of all. The Mile High City has a dual-peaked distribution, with the first peak of snow in November and December, and a second and higher peak in March and April. It snows an average of 9 inches each April in Denver — more than in Buffalo, Chicago, New York and Minneapolis combined. What accounts for Denver’s precipitation patterns? The Western Regional Climate Center has a good explainer. Denver, being a long way from moisture sources such as the Pacific Ocean, is among the drier major cities in the United States. Most storms travel west to east in the Northern Hemisphere, and most of their moisture is soaked up by the Rocky Mountains before they reach Denver. But spring and summer can bring warm, moist air from the south, sometimes producing violent storms. By May and June, most of that precipitation will fall as rain, but it can come as snow — sometimes blizzards — early in Colorado’s spring.

“Do you know what people really want? Everyone, I mean. Everybody in the world is thinking: I wish there was just one other person I could really talk to, who could really understand me, who’d be kind to me. That’s what people really want, if they’re telling the truth.” — Doris Lessing, The Golden Notebook  (via thatkindofwoman)

The All-Too-Successful Republican War On Medicaid -

States that implemented the ACA’s Medicaid expansion saw a larger decline: their uninsurance rates for adults dropped 4.0 percentage points since September, compared with a drop of 1.5 percentage points for the nonexpanding states. The average uninsurance rate for adults in the 24 nonexpanding states was 18.1 percent in March 2014, well above the 12.4 percent average in the expansion states.
