Ok dumb question here but we are purging for the move. We have some really nice, well built, long lasting lawn furniture. Most of our moving costs will be paid for. I'm trying to decide if keeping the lawn furniture is worth it. It's pretty new and very well constructed. How long is the season for hanging outside in the backyard? I'm sure it is shorter than ABQ but by how much? We love hanging outside with our dogs but I'm not going to transport our outdoor items if the season is not that long.
Thanks. Again, looking at Gleneagle area.

Keep it. Heck, in Grand Marais, MN (far north), the outdoor dining season is at least five months long, and I will sit and have a beer out there year-round. The time I spend in Denver is often eating outside even in months like November and April. Maybe not for every meal, but you will have your days.

I'd keep it as long as the cost to move does not exceed the value of the furniture. Only in February and March do I not use my deck furniture at least once in a while up here in southwest Teller Co.

The hot season is short compared to many areas, but we have more days of "man it feels perfect out here" than anywhere I have lived previously. Even in dead winter, we can get a stray day that is reasonably warm with the sunshine. I definitely would keep it unless as mentioned the cost to move it exceeds the cost to replace it when you get here.

Yup, I agree with the others here.... you're going to want to have some patio furniture as long as you have a patio here, and the keep/replace decision should be based on moving vs replacement cost.

I use my patio table even in the depth of winter as a work surface for refilling the bird feeder and such like, and when we get one of those warm days in the 50s in January or February it can be really pleasant to bask in the sun over a mug of tea....

It sounded crazy to me to enjoy sitting in 40 - 50 degree weather, being that I moved form the south where it rarely gets cold and people act as if it is Antarctica if they see a snow flake. Now that I have lived here I completely understand. After a week of subfreezing temps and snowy weather a sunny 45- 50 degree day is almost t-shirt weather and is definitely a must to get out of the house.
