People have a right to live where they want to live. Half the people I know in NYC are not originally from NYC. So is it a crime if I was born here, and want to live somewhere else? And what of the genetic lottery anyway? Are you sanctioned to stick it out some place just because that is where you were born and raised?
My thouhgts on this issue are much the same as yours. I've always thought that it is a silly notion for someone to believe that simply becasue they were born somehwere that they are more entitled to live there than somone who was born elsewhere. This entitlement mentality has no basis in reality. In reality our bodies have 2 feet. By continulously putting one foot in front of the other we can move from place to place. In fact, mankind has been doing so for a long long time. I don't think it's gonna stop anytime soon just becasue some people have resisitance to others moving into their area. For better or worse, these frustrated people simply won't accept reality and they lead unhappy lives as a result of their resistance to change.

exactly im planning on moving either to denver or seattle and its because i think it is rediculous how expensive it is to live in an overpopulated place that doesnt even have low crime or anything. I want to be closer to the natural beauty and I want to live somewhere where I can enjoy life. And as much as I have enjoyed San FRancisco I dont like it here and its not my cup of tea.

Californians are in our prayers now. Those fires look devastating to people, animals, homes and property, the elderly who have a hard time breathing, the Fire fighters...

It's funny - I was just saying on another post how we have finally settled in - we have been here 6 weeks and have been amazed at how nice everyone is... even when we say we are from California. Moving here after I read all these comments (not just on this post, but on the site in general) I was thinking that we would be shunned or something. lol. But it's been great. Maybe they only talk about us behind our backs????

If that's the case, I'm fine with that... hahaha

We have overall been very pleasantly surprised though. We love Co. so far!

Like you Momzilla, I'm a relative newcomer to Colorado. Been here for 16 months, and I've never encounterd any degree of hostility whatsoever. Fortunately it's limited to a few bitter hearted people on the forum. BTW, welcome to Colorado. I think you'll love it here.

We got a very small amount back in october. Supposedly we are getting some tomorrow also. November is typically a dry month for the denver area I believe. I like it this way though. Some cold days mixed in with some really nice warm days. I wouldn't mind if the rest of the winter went this way as opposed to the last winter.. that was a nightmare

The Californians that are moving out of CA, are those that want a more relaxed lifestyle, possibly a different climate, affordable housing, etc. You'd know that if you lived here, so you should really welcome those people, because they want a change in lifestyle, not to impose their lifestyle on another place...Come on, who does that (aside from New Yorkers)?

I think some of you are right, in that the weather in Colorado will be a buffer to bringing a large amount of people in from California (So Cal especially). So you need not worry. You cannot blame some for taking their equity and wanting to move to a place with a slower pace, and a much-reduced or non-existent mortgage payment.
i live in s. california but go to memphis area often. i have noticed
the people in mississippi are real real nice and the weather is lousy
in califonia its exactly the opposite.

You're probably getting the storm that passed through here.

Default "Us" and "Them"

I have noticed a distinct "us" and "them" attitude with a percentage of people living in Colorado. Almost like its belongs to them and no one else is welcome. I am not referring to everyone in the state, just a small percentage who seem to have this attitude. Just like we say "you can't pick your relatives" we also can't pick where we are born, but feel we have the right to move if we choose.

I have bought, and I have moved, and I love it. The people I have met have been some of the most warm and welcoming people I have ever met, but I don't get that impression from everyone.

Am I reading the vibes correctly, or have I got it totally wrong?...
