Thats basically the question, do you love living in Colorado? And what area do you live in. I live in Colorado Springs and yes I love living here.

Yes, it's a great place to live. I do think I'll go south when I get older, but since I'm 28 I have quite a while =)

I love living in Colorado. Great city life, small town life and an incredible outdoor paradise. I live in Castle Rock.

Except that you constantly complain that it's not big enough--it's actually already too big for my tastes, you complain that the climate doesn't suit you, and so on and so on. In other words, you mouth the words that you think it is great, but you want just about everything about it to change. So which is it?

I think Pueblo is a great city at 100,000 people and will be a even better city at 250,000 people and even a better city at 500,000 people.

Pueblo has a great climate as I love the summers in Pueblo as we get hot but not too hot with fun thunderstorms and the winters as it gets cold but not too cold with warm days in between the cold fronts.

As far as snow, I love snow but have accepted that Pueblo does not get much snow and realize that is a plus for us as most people like that climate. That being said I look forward to when we do get snow as Pueblo gets a few good storms a season, however, that is one reason why I want a cabin so I can go enjoy the snow and ski on weekends and just have a place to get a way as I love the Colorado mountains as well.

Any questions?

Yes... well I did. I always felt so good every morning. I loved the fresh crisp air. I loved the seasons, even though fall was usually short.

I didn't realize how great Colorado was that until I left. Funny how you take things for granted.

My family and I moved to Louisville a few years ago from New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina. All I can say is I wish we moved a long time ago! We absolutely love it. I've lived in NY,MI,TX,LA and CO is the best by far.

Yes. Palmer Lake.

I'm going running in the mountains across the street now where I will see:
A waterfall, three lakes, many wildflowers, panoramic views, muskrat, deer, foxes, and many birds...

And maybe even...
Coyote, elk, wild turkeys...

And oarhaps someday...
A bear, a mountain lion.

If you stop hearing from me on here, you'll know why. ;-)
