I totally agree. My lawn and trees are loving it.

Agree, and washes away the dust can grit from all the melting snow on the roads/highways. Was wishing it just little heavier and would have clean the patio nicely.

I think visitors get their lasting impression from short trips, good or bad. I had a guest visit for a long weekend during a snowstorm, keeping us indoors for most of it. A friend here for a conference last week enjoyed spectacular spring weather, but could have gone either way.

Another person I know was here (from New Mexico) the weekend we had the big Saturday night surprise snowstorm, late January I think? Roads were still bad Sunday and he was planning to drive back 285. He waited one day - it was sunny again and had a beautiful drive with dry roads and snow capped peaks with fresh snow (his first time driving it.) One day makes a big change.

Weather in Colorado is like a box of Cracker Jacks... There is a surprise inside! You never really know what you're going to get.

Don't listen to these people. They all work for the Chamber of Commerce. Their jobs are to convince poor and unsuspecting individuals, such as yourself, to move here to prop up prices so they can sell their houses and leave for someplace better.

This is what Denver looks like from October 1 thru June 1.



At first glance, it looks like the picture is black and white. FALSE. The picture is actually a color photograph. That is how grey and snow it is out here. Secondly, notice the horses. Most people out here have horses because cars cannot drive in snow that is deep as it always is out here. We must commute by sleigh.

From June 1 thru October 1, things look like this.



The Denver propaganda spin machine would have you believe otherwise, but it is no coincidence that Denver's population starting booming only after Photoshop and the Internet became widespread. Photoshop allowed them to manipulate the actual dismal photos into something pleasant. The internet was the platform used to spread these photographic lies, as well as other lies about living here, including the legalization of marijuana. This, too, is a lie. The populace is dependent on prison jobs, so they lure unsuspecting marijuana smokers here with their lies and arrest them as they leave the pot shops. The average sentence for possession here is a symbolic 420 years at hard labor.

I've said too much. I hear them coming for me. Must press submit before they

And it could snow heavily again this season. And that's my observations from Denver inside the city.
Denver actually broke two record highs - 79 on Sunday (03/15/15) and 81 on Monday. Pretty amazing for March, although certainly not unheard of. We'll still get another snowstorm or two, which is awesome for spring bloom - it's the bitter cold we don't need at this point.

No, don't live there. West Texas now, actually. Impression I guess garnered from many sort of general inquiries over the years. Also health inquiries, as this might well be my last move and I have osteoarthritis, some breathing issues (from having been a smoker for 20 years, though I quit 20 years ago), some mobility problems.

I know it is more costly to live there but it might be worth it to be around more liberal people.

West Texas.......blech.

I am allowed to say that because I am from Texas and lived in Wichita Falls for 5 years before coming here. In any event, I am moving back to Houston in July ('cause that's the best time of year to be in Houston), and I will miss this weather here. Truly.
