We have been getting millions of bats filling the sky on dusk for the last month but not the last few days .
This heat may have taken its toll.

Third Record High In A Week Set As Winter Heat Wave Continues

DENVER (CBS4)– For the second day in a row and the third time in a week, Denver set a new daily record high on Thursday when the temperature climbed to 75 degrees at Denver International Airport. The old record for Feb. 16 was 70 degrees set in 1970.

Typically highs for mid-February are around the middle 40s in Denver.

February is currently tied for the third warmest on record in Denver since 1873.

I'm looking forward to a little "heatwave" predicted for the weekend. High temps in the 40"s F will help settle the four feet of snow I have on the ground most of which has fallen this month. I have another @$# &*#@! six inches to plow this morning.
