Summer Reading For most of my life I lived in extremely cold and snowy locations, so the lure of summer was powerful. My family was large and had limited resources so we didn't travel or vacation : we just learned to make the best out of whatever season we happened to be in (which was usually winter). Summer meant warmth and sunshine and lazy days off from school, and we looked forward to it with a vengeance. Even in higher education we kicked back in the summer.

And that number continues to grow! Businesses are starting, expanding, or moving to Denver, and with that means a boom in construction.
