Sorry to get off topic but I'm also from CT and I've been looking at potential places to relocate in the next couple years, Denver being high on my list along with Raleigh, Austin, Southern California, Boston and Seattle. Did you grow up in CT? Can you describe your experience moving to Denver? Pros, cons, regrets, cost of living, job market, etc. My priorities are nightlife (I'm 27), things to do, hiking, landscape (I'm a professional photographer), job market, and ease of travel to the rest of the country and the world. I'd likely be looking to live in a high rise downtown. I know nothing can check every box but I'm trying to get as much insight as I can from those who have lived in both places. Thank you!

I think the last 5 days nicely summarize Denver's winter weather. mild to cold, snow, blowing winds, snow drifts and ice, sun, melting, and now 60* on the horizon.

Winter and summer wardrobes in CO had better be interchangeable and multi-layered.

Translation for the folks in the RE threads: make sure the place you buy or rent has large closets.

Totally different from Michigan, with blue skies and comfortable conditions being the norm, even in winter.

When I was living in Denver, my company started making a little noise about me taking a position with them in Phoenix. No frickin way!
Yeah, we might get 3 months that suck, but the other 9 months we just sit back and laugh at Denver's weather.

It was so sunny in Denver, I had to get used to it all the time.
At least Philly doesn’t really get snow and cold or very cool spell in May...
It’s pretty aberrant how overrated Denver climate is.

Nature does what she wants! Denver lives by what Nature throws at her. Texas has the same type of weather and so does every other state.

Denver weather is ho hum, except for moments of sheer terror from hail, lightning storms, blizzards, and tornadoes. Make sure you have comprehensive insurance on your car.
