I would echo what others have said -- this is not a "lots of water" state. There IS water -- most of it is in drinking water reservoirs and not surrounded by homes or development. We have great summer thunderstorms and we do have lots of great trees on the western half of the state. Very NOT like Florida.

Friday I toured the Capitol building, and I thought of this thread when I saw the murals around the Grand Staircase. They all involved water, and the guide pointed out that even since Colorado's earliest days, the semi-arid nature of much of the state has made water its most precious resource.
