In 1996 the Left Coast Crime Convention — held annually somewhere in the Western US — was held in Boulder, Colorado.

Here in the Rocky Mountains, we've had record winds. Over at the tiny hamlet of Ward, not but a dozen miles as the raven flies, they clocked the blasts last week at 108mph. That's hurricane force, by anyone's standards. The weather-person says it's the La Niña jet stream that's causing this...
