Donkey, while it's true that the weather may not be the only consideration, it might be one of many (perhaps in the same way that elderly gravitate to Florida because it's easier on them physically).

Keep in mind that the political presence of an area has a lot to do with the quality of life there. Depending on how liberal/conservative a place is, it can determine the character, economy, and spending habits. Make no mistake that the State's politics trickle on down eventually into every facet of life. Case in point-California's liberal attitude has a lot to do with the overspending and mismanagement, which I'm sure is impacting the economy and unemployment rate today. Those are all pivotal reasons (jobs) why a person should or should not live in an area.

All of Colorado has distinct seasons. Now, be aware that each season isn't the same length. Winter seems to be pretty long, with short spring and fall seasons.

The front range and eastern plains gets tornados, but not like the midwest.

Is any of that possible without being in 10 feet of snow in during the winter? I have only traveled there in the summers before.
Nowhere in colorado except smack in the middle of the mountains at higher elevations is going to bury you in snow all winter.

Also, what is the cost of living like here. We do not need a huge city but maybe small town or suburb area. Here in south texas the housing is very cheap and so is the gas. Rent ranges from 500 - 800 for a halfway decent place. but the pay here is low.
Colorado ranges from cheap (small desert towns) to places only the rich can afford (Aspen, Vail, etc.) to normal cost of living (Denver).

Which is why I said those are both valid considerations. Just not the most important ones. Why are you turning this into a political discussion?

Ok, sorry. I thought that was the point of the forums.

Not this one. There is a political forum for that.
