Yeah that's Funny when I drove out from Charlotte NC in April 2011 I stopped there anx oh so very True on the boring part outside Kansas city. If ones not careful one can run outa gas!

QUOTE=Colorado Rambler;29420630]Jazzlover pretty much nailed it, except I'd say just from anecdotal evidence that July tends to be a hotter month in SW Colorado than June. Usually at some point in July, the monsoon will arrive to drop temperatures somewhat which may make July statistically cooler out here, even though we get plenty of high temps in the first part of that month. Alas, for a couple of years or so, the monsoon has begun to fail us - just more wacky warm and dry weather, I guess.

Speaking of tornadoes, they can show up even in the foothills of the Front Range on rare occasions. I was living in Manitou Springs when a small twister came right through the park downtown next to City Hall. The park was demolished and the statue which was a memorial to American soldiers who had been killed in the wars had to be replaced (along with the rest of the park).

The worst problem I've ever run into on I-70 from about Kansas City on is extreme boredom. Don't forget to stop and see the World's Biggest Prairie Dog (near Goodland?), because after him there is NOTHING until you hit the eastern most sprawl of the Front Range.[/quote]

It was the first time in 9 years of living here, but my house was hit by a tornado last June, ok within a mile in Parker, and I had 18k worth of damage so yeah it can happen but not as often in the midwest.
