DENVER (CBS4)– Xcel Energy says that they anticipate Thursday to be the highest-usage day of 2018. Denver broke the heat record which was previously at 99 degrees by reaching 100 degrees at 11:31 a.m. Thursday.

Denver would go on to tie the all-time heat record in the city, 105 degrees, at 2:20 p.m. That ties the all-time heat record set on June 26, 2012.

The belly floppers said they have been training and thinking up unique moves for the competition.

“Anyone out there who wants to belly flop you definitely have to get the technique down. The closer you get to hitting the water at once the more perfect your flop is going to be,” said Belly Flop contestant Nikko Bermea.

  1. dry heat, try a 100 in the wet heat. darn i missed the flight for the contest. boo hoo


    Everybody says there is this RACE problem. Everybody says this RACE problem will be solved when the third world pours into EVERY white country and ONLY into white countries.

    The Netherlands and Belgium are just as crowded as Japan or Taiwan, but nobody says Japan or Taiwan will solve this RACE problem by bringing in millions of third worlders and quote assimilating unquote with them.

    Everybody says the final solution to this RACE problem is for EVERY white country and ONLY white countries to “assimilate,” i.e., intermarry, with all those non-whites.

    What if I said there was this RACE problem and this RACE problem would be solved only if hundreds of millions of non-blacks were brought into EVERY black country and ONLY into black countries?

    How long would it take anyone to realize I’m not talking about a RACE problem. I am talking about the final solution to the BLACK problem?

    And how long would it take any sane black man to notice this and what kind of psycho black man wouldn’t object to this?

    But if I tell that obvious truth about the ongoing program of genocide against my race, the white race, Liberals and respectable conservatives agree that I am a naziwhowantstokillsixmillionjews.

    They say they are anti-racist. What they are is anti-white.

    Anti-racist is a code word for anti-white.

    The previous temps were measured at Stapleton Fields which reached a high of 99. The so called record high was reached at DIA. So with an apples to apples comparison it did not come close to tying the record.

  4. This is ALL Barack Hussein Obama’s fault! He spent way too much time in the G*A*Y bath houses during his eight wasted years in the White House!

  5. David Smith says:

    Time for Al Gore to come out of his hole and gas up his plane and talk about global warming.

  6. The golden retriever aka good boy from Drudge brought me here.

  7. Here in Phoenix we wold be happy if it was only 105 in summer. Cry me a river. And come back when it’s 120.

    1. Gary Griffin says:

      Ever been to Redding Ca in what used to be called summer?

  8. blorjr says:

    How long will be until cnn and msnbc blame Trump for the heat.

  9. We don’t even know if this is true. Sadly, both NASA and NOAA changed their temperature history files. Historic temperatures, in their files, are now lower than the temperatures originally recorded. Neither organization, to my knowledge, gave a rational explanation for the change, but it makes global warming seem more severe than it actually is. NASA changed first, followed a couple of years later by NOAA.

    1. John Garrett says:

      You bring up good, and proven, points.

    2. The ones in power want to control the future so they changed the past. Goes along with George Orwell, “He who controls the past controls the future. He who controls the present controls the past.” George Orwell – 1984

  10. David King says:

    Non News !!! I lived here over 40 years , gets hot a couple of days du-ah, We live in a semi arid dessert and it will get down to the mid 60’s at night . shut up snow flakes!

  11. Michael Kern says:

    Of course the liberal media doesn’t tell you that temperature history just started in 1882. What about the 4.5 billion years before that??

  12. It’s miserable, terrible and an awful place to live. You don’t want to live in CO, especially if you’re liberal.

  13. Jeff Crouse says:

    Does this mean we have to see pig face Al Gore on the tube? It’s hot out today, get over it. There will be unusually cool days coming. It’s called weather.
