    Now we are close enough to rely on weather forecasts for the game tomorrow.

    The closest reliable forecast is from Jeffco's Airport just a few miles away so that is the best guess.

    Right now with 23 and a half hours to go the beginning of the game is forecasted to be low visibility around 3 miles or so and low clouds bringing light drizzle and mist. Oh yeah, winds will be around 10 knots. Should find out in a few hours if the rest of the game will be the same. I am guessing it clears up a tad during the game.

    Well, we will lose too...

    So this will be my first time at this thing, how does it work? How long does it last?

    Do they play a full game type thing with 4 quarters of offense vs defense, or do they do other stuff too?

    It's too early to be predicting the weather. If you're a true Coloradan you know that a 1 hour forcast is early.:cool:

    Leash, you'll be happy to know we're coming up. I can't guarantee we'll stay the whole game if it's raining, but the decision has been made. The 'rino clan is loading up the truck and coming to Boulder.

    Then we're going to visit our puppy in Ft. Fun afterwards. Anyone know how long it takes to get from Folsom to I-25 and the first (on the south side) exit to Ft. Collins?

    I was just busting your balls before, so no worries.

    Folsom to my house (Johnstown exit of I-25) is about 50 minutes. Add another 10-15 to Ft. Collins exits.

    What's the best route to take? The Diagonal to Longmont to 25, or take 36 up to Lyons and then cut east?

    diagonal to longmont to i-25 north will be faster...they built a new bypass so you avoid downtown longmont traffic...make sure to take note of the "art" monstrosity at third ave and 119 as you drive by...

    In other words, wind from the southeast at 12 knots gusting to 18 knots, more than 6 miles of visibility, showers in the vicinity, scattered clouds at 500 and overcast at 2000 feet.

    You dont drive by that anymore, I live in Longmont...Yes I appreciate your spympathies. 119 is always so easy to get in on game day, even if it is out of your way it is better than sitting in traffic all day waiting!
