Well then is Longmont afordable? I always wondered how much it cost to live there...

Pretty large (3 bedroom, ~1200 square feet) apartment with garage ran about $1100/month in 2005-2006. Other than that, it's a pretty normal front range mid sized city-same sorts of prices I bet you find in Pueblo or Ft Collins. Day to day stuff seemed slightly less expensive than Denver and Boulder-about what you'd expect.

Pueblo is so dull that if you tripped on peyote here, you'd have visions of a Celine Dion concert.
