... Today in Metro Denver weather history...

19-30 in 1875... grasshoppers appeared in great numbers at 10:00 am
        on the 19th. Thousands landed on the ground. The streets
        were literally covered with them. Swarms of grasshoppers
        were seen on each day. All gardens in the city were
        devastated... and in the Countryside the grasshoppers were
        very destructive to ripened grain. On the 30th the
        grasshoppers were so numerous as to almost darken the sun.
27-28 in 2004... a brief chilly spell resulted in three temperature
        records. The high temperature of 55 degrees on the 27th
        was a record low maximum for the date. The low temperature
        of 48 degrees on the 27th equaled the record minimum for
        the date. The low temperature of 42 degrees on the 28th
        was a record minimum for the date.
28 in 1887... a dry thunderstorm produced north winds to 48 mph
        but only a trace of rainfall.
      In 1968... one man was seriously injured by lightning while
        riding on a roller coaster at a Denver amusement park. An
        airline employee was injured when lightning struck a
        jetliner he was servicing at Stapleton International
        Airport. A lightning-caused fire did extensive damage to
        one house and minor damage to several others in the city of
        Denver.
      In 1970... a microburst wind gust to 53 mph was recorded at
        Stapleton International Airport.
      In 2002... a severe thunderstorm produced 3/4 inch diameter
