Hi, I am thinking of living in Ft. Collins, but if I transfer thru my current job the closest place would be Loveland or Greeley for work. Would the drive be horrible in the winter, and what kind of time is involved for traffic?

I would probably look for something in Ft. Collins eventually! or somewhere else, this would get me out there from the east coast.

it depends on from exactly where to exactly where. All are in close proximity, and in truly bad weather....you can stay home with everyone else except the snow plow drivers.

I work in Loveland and live in Longmont and I can honestly say I've never had to stay home because of the Winter drive. There have been two occasions where maybe I should've stayed home, but after 10 years living in Minnesota, the snow you get here is minimal in comparison. The roads are well maintained and snow doesn't last more than a few hours anyway. I've noticed my colleagues coming south from Ft Collins have fewer driving issues than I do going north. I've no idea what it's like driving to Greeley but I think the commute between Loveland and Ft Collins depends on what end of town you're working and living in. Ft Collins stretches for miles but if you lived at the southern end it could take about 20 minutes to get to work.
