Don't act like you guys don't get it. Just stating the obvious.

So what's obvious is that you're a racist. Good for you. It's a free country. I came from Chatsworth California to Pueblo County in 1977 and thought absolutely nothing of the presence of Hispanic folks in Pueblo but thought it strange that it lacked the presence of black folks, Asians, South Pacific folks, Middle Eastern folks, etc.

Brown Town though... you run amongst a strange crowd. I suppose that is where the term White Flight comes from and if you have enough money to afford it, you can find your haven there in El Paso County.

El Paso County also has a healthy number of hispanics, as far as I know - as well as a healthy number of (insert derogatory term of choice here) whites. The folks with "enough money" to afford a "haven" that I personally know in El Paso County have a level of class (and education) that I cannot even fathom hearing (nor have I ever heard in 10+ years here) a blatantly racist slur from a single one of them. I suspect the same is true in Pueblo County and pretty much everywhere else north of Kentucky and west of Texas. In other words, outside a certain geographic region, racist slurs can pretty much be used to easily identify the sort of person who definitely does NOT live in a moneyed haven. The vast, vast majority of Colorado Springs residents (that I've ever encountered) do not scorn Pueblo and are not racist.

Well I've been posting here since 2006, so I know the demographics of this here forum pretty well.

I could care less about the demographics of El Paso county except for my response to ryanek9freak as this is the "Colorado" subforum and this thread here pertains to Pueblo in particular.

Colorado Springs has its own subforum, in case you haven't noticed.

I know this thread has been quiet for a little bit, but I'm wondering if I could get some insight from Josseppie or McGowdog--or anyone else's opion on Pueblo's weather, namely the wind factor. Both Josseppie & McGowdog are pretty forthright and seem to enjoy Pueblo, and I would appreciate any feedback you could give. I've only driven through Pueblo on my way to Pagosa Springs in my younger years; so I was wondering how bad is the wind really? Or better phrased, how hard does it actually blow on an average day? A breeze (5-10mph) isn't bad; but a constant 25-35 mph is what I deal with now.....on almost a daily basis; and I don't want to consider relocating to the same wind. I love the outdoors too much!
Thanks in advance for any info!

On a average day its not bad. Sure we have our windy days when there is down sloping winds that warms up the city but overall I think its not as bad here as in other parts of the country.

The wind is usually consistently higher from March to May and it can range from 10 mph to gusts that are much higher... maybe in the 30s or 40s or even higher on bad days.

But that kind of wind usually lasts a day or two and it's gone.

I don't think Pueblo nor Pueblo West is as bad as other places in Colorado like around Walsenburg, Hwy 93 near Boulder, and the north portion of the Front Range from about Longmont on into Wyoming.

When it's really windy in Pueblo it is due to a change in weather and is usually warranted as we can use whatever little moisture we can get. Unfortunately, the wind can be very drying as well. But Pueblo isn't known to be any more windy than other parts of the state. Last year was unusually windy, hot, and dry.

A better question is where is it not windy in CO? Because in Parker we get plenty of wind, the Springs is damn windy at times, Boulder windy, Pagosa windy so I think we have most of the state covered would you say?

Thank you all for the responses!! I'm currently in Southern Utah and like I said; the wind blows pretty much every day (or at least every afternoon). It blows hard enough that I have to wear a baseball cap when riding my horses instead of my cowboy hat....which stinks cuz then I have to use more sunscreen! Plus, I have a green horse which the wind just makes everything that much more scary to her; and it's not enjoyable for either of us when you are getting sandblasted.

Thanks again, and have a wonderful St. Paddy's weekend!

No wind when you are underground.
