There is a possiblity of moving to the Greeley, CO area for employment and was wanting to know about the area and the climate. How much is housing and any recommendations on where to live. Commuting would be no problem since I commute 45 minutes one way right now. Never been to this part of Colorado and don't know much about it.

Also, what is the weather like?

Thanks!

Default Briefly....

In a nutshell: Smallish town on flat grassland prairie, about ten miles east of I-25. Mountains are to the west about 25 miles. Big employers are the meat packing plant and a college. Quite a few feedlots in the area, sometimes they get a bit smelly. Snows a bit but melts off very quickly, nothing like Buffalo, NY and lake effect snows. Sunny 300 days per years. Sometimes windy. Dry climate with low humidity and few bugs. Standard equipment is sunscreen, lip balm, water, sunglasses and a hat. About an hour drive up Hwy 83 into Cheyenne, WY.

Use Search this Forum tool with terms like Greeley or weather climate snow crime schools or whatever is your interest.
