I do miss Pagosa Norman Rockwell like comes to mind. People are nice and slow. Took me 2 days to slow down and not get upset that Nancy and Susie are talking about Jimmy's soccer game blocking the isle at CM LOL

We do have a small hospital as well as an associated clinic and we do have an emergency room(s).

I have been there and that's not my definition of a hospital but we can agree to disagree.

They get 100 inches of annual snowfall. Flagstaff gets 100 inches or so as well, however I wouldn't call that a bad winter either.
Funny thing about statistics... Pagosa gets LOTS of cloud cover too. It can be sunny in the morning, pouring rain in the afternoon and clear again by sundown... particularly in the summer months.
I've lived here for 6 years and I love it... but I don't have to get out of bed when it is 0 degrees outside and hit the streets to work. I'd never have moved to Pagosa if I'd had to work for a living. Being retired has its advantages!!!

Correct, Pagosa receives 101 inches/yr of snowfall; in contrast, Durango receives 69 inches/yr. Pagosa gets roughly 290 days/yr of sunshine, and Durango gets 266 days/yr of sunshine (while the US avg is 205 sunny days/yr).

It was really nice spending couple of days there last week. The Springs resort just keeps growing.

I was surprised that more people weren't in town for vacation.

^People winter vacationing in Colorado expect to see snow, even if they are not skiers. So far this winter, the southern part of Colorado is getting the short end of the stick for snowfall--again, for the third year in a row. The word about that is getting around. I've talked to people who are abandoning plans for winter vacations in the southern Colorado mountains after getting "burned" a couple years in a row by low early snowfall. I was just through there--Durango to Pagosa is pretty much snow-less.

Not Wolf Creek it had 6-7 feet when I just went, but yes there was little snow in town, a bit at the Springs.

Drove over Wolf Creek Pass today, I have never seen so many snow mobiles. Plenty of snow on the pass, the surrounding areas not so much. Highway 84 was pretty bare.
