We are having our wedding at an outdoor, do it yourself kind of venue-- the plan is out outdoor ceremony and there is little back up plan. I had looked at the Farmers Almanac months ago and saw that it hadn't rained on August 11th in Westcliffe (where we are doing the wedding) for the past ten years (ok...last year it rained .01 inches, but we could deal with that!) We just met with the person who is renting us the venue today and he mentioned that monsoon season is about that time of year and most days include an afternoon thunderstorm. That totally freaked me out-- and I don't know how to integrate that info with what I saw in Farmers Almanac. We just moved to Denver this fall so haven't had much of a Colorado summer. For those who have lived here a while, how much do we really have to worry about monsoons? The latest we could have our ceremony start would be about 5:30 pm...can we be fairly confident way monsoon thunderstorm would be over by then, or do they tend to go into the evenings? How long do those summer storms tend to last? Any thoughts greatly appreciated!!!
