I think that the blizzards and the sub-zero cold snaps wait for people from southern Florida to visit.

Thanks everyone. I've never experienced winter outside of the east coast, so it's hard to imagine a comfortable winter ... but sounds darn nice.

i think the cool thing is all the snow but its never really that cold! Here in ky its usually in the 10s and dry in winter or in the mid 30s and pouring rain the worst climate imaginable!

To quote the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, "the closest thing to heaven that I've found, is a quiet Christmas morning in the Colorado snow".

In Denver, it can snow a foot, and the sun melts it away in a day or two (except last winter; it was cold, snowy and not normal). I live at 8600 feet and it was 87 degrees the last few days. I am 50 mins from Denver, and the temp down there (Denver is at 5280 feet) is about ten degrees hotter. Colorada is great-been here 13 years.

Unless you are in the foothills or the mtns, there isn't that much snow. Weeks of warm, sunny weather between snowstorms. Sometimes the kids barely got their sleds out.
