My whole family just sits in airconditioning all day long, cant go anywhere but work or the car. Im freeeeeee. Colorado, snow, mountains, low humidity, Denver Broncos, higher pay, Rocky Mountain National Park, Gaden of the GODs, here I come.

Remember this: Colorado is Gods country, home of the Denver Broncos.

A lot of people like it here in Austin though. Most of them are from other eastern or southern states. West Coasters such as myself hate it. Good riddens Lone Star flag, good bye to all the folks dumb folks that think Sadam caused 911, Good bye state that does not have Carls JR. Good Bye flash floods that I continue to get stuck in every time I drive more than 50 miles.

I will miss the liberals here. Some parts of Austin don't belong in Texas.
Higher Pay? Maybe a little higher...but from what the people on this forum have told me, there is a lack of jobs in Colorado. You should read my post "Fort Collins, No decent paying jobs????". Good luck with your move and the job hunt =)

Default Im Finally in Gods country

Been here a week now. I love it. My son kindergarten class just took a filed trip to Bob Cat Ridge, west of Loveland. That was pretty nice. I love the weather and Im looking forward to the cold too believe it or not. After sweltering humidity, which I have been told was a mild year in Austin, Bring on the cold front. Loveland has some wonderfull bike paths. The mountains are beautifull. I moved here just in time to jump on the Colorado Rockies bandwagon. Its hotter than you know what in Austin, and Raining in Washinton state.

Have living in South Tx most of my life (moved to CO in Feb)...I am also looking forward to the cold front that's coming Saturday night....my co-workers think I'm silly because I get excited when there is the slightest talk of snow somewhere in Colorado. I will never go back to living in humidity again. Happy to hear you are loving Colorado!!

It is and after being here for 29 years (raised in CA and lived there for over 28years), I'm so ready to view Texas in my rear-view mirror. My situation may be different than many as I'm approaching my sunset years. While my children were growing up, they were my life and my focus. Now they're grown, and I have realized for many years now that Texas is not where I want to continue to live. My focus is now on why I don't like it here.

I'm in love with southwestern VA but am always looking at other possibilities. Wherever I go, I must have mountains. Here I am now on the CO forum seaching out other possiblities of relocation.

Wife says you can do more in the heat then in the cold.
I do have to admit that I don't even own a scraper for my windshield, but man... it's a war to get her to sale all out %$#@ here and move fresh back to CO. Arrgghh!!

She should go where her husband chooses as that's how it's supposed to be. My mom never wanted to leave CA, but my dad wanted to move to TX to be closer to my sister and her bunch. He thought it was a good idea. Well, we were fine in CA but my husband and I, young and dumb, moved as well.

My dad was the one that hated Texas the most and always regretted the move. He referred to it as a "hell hole" and never got used to it although before he passed away, he only lived here for less than 9 years. Mom adjusted well and I guess I did too until my kids grew up and my focus on life changed. I'm praying to get out of this sorry place one day and spend my sunset years in beauty and less heat and humidity. 29 years is way too long to swelter for 5 to 6 months out of the year.

Get your butt up here to Colorado, Its just wonderfull. Absolutely NO humidity. The Sky is Blue, so much bluer than Austin. I don't know why but everything looked white and washed out to me there. It was the worst 5 months of my 39 years on the plannet. Mountains, pine trees, better road systems galore. The sunsets here are spectacular. You moved to Texas when I was 10 years old. That is an unthinkable amount of time. I was so glad to be out of there, as soon as I hit Oklahoma, I flipped Texas off and just giggled with excitement.

You're so welcoming. Thanks!! I'm coming to Aurora over the Christmas holidays to see my great-nephew, his wife, and my great-great nephew who will be celebrating his 1st birthday on December 27. I can't wait. I just called my sister about an hour ago to confirm that I'm joining some other members of my family for the trip.

My great-nephew and his wife are in the service and stationed there for now. One day when they get out, I believe they'll wind up in Minnesota where my great-niece-in-law is from. I've never been to MN, but can speculate it beats Texas.

I actually live about 150 miles north of Austin but nevertheless, I know what you mean about everything looking washed out. I think it has a lot to do with the humidity because it can become so thick. After a nice rain, it usually looks better for a little bit of time anyway.

shucks your going to miss the fall here. Its so beautiful, the green pines mixed with the yellow aspens. We went to Estes Park, West of Fort Collins Colorado. Every turn was a post card.

Are you living in the early 1900's?
