Jazz makes some good points here. I worked at the Pawnee Power Plant just east of Ft. Morgan for over three years and YES, softball size can occur there. I kept a permament residence in Littleton but stayed in Brush during the week. I was renting a 12' by 60' mobile home and the roof got pounded. Believe it or not a couple softball size hailstones came right through the roof. And yes, thunderstorms in Morgan County are aplenty.

Regarding snowstorms in the winter, C-DOT does a great job with what they have to work with fiscally. IMO they have taken a bigger hit than most states regarding money available for road improvements. But Interstate 76 gets first rate coverage.

In post #3 Jazz mentions rattlesnakes. There were plenty of THEM all right, camping out under structural steel and equipment storage yards out there at the plant.

Ft. Morgan along with Brush haven't seen a huge amount growth but there has been some developments pop up there with a good share of that being retirees. And a good share of them are craftsmen I worked with who lived in the front range megaloposis (!). I go through that area a couple times a year to visit a few of those guys and some shirttail relatives. My dad grew up there.

They have a nice community college there just off the interstate on Barlow Rd. Shopping is pretty much Walmart but Denver isn't all that far away for the big stores. And yes, at times you have a distinct agricultural odor in the air. And the affectionate response from long time residents is "yep, that's the smell of money!"

I liked Ft. Morgan when I lived there then. Still like it.
