Default Let's All Chant: "no More Snow, No More Snow, No More Snow!!!

Hey, with the way this winter has been here in the Denver metro area (specifially, Parker) and my fall on ice/snow this past Dec. (which resulted in shoulder surgery...not fun ), we don't care if we seen another snow flake for the rest of this winter. With temps here this week in the 60's and tomorrow up to 74 , we have had enough of winter and a lot of people here will agree with that. We don't care what the snow skiers/boarders think....enough is enough, PERIOD . Just thank God for Health Insurance. The surgery alone on my shoulder is costing close to $25,000 and that was outpatient surgery (no hospital stay). We drove down to our local lake (reservior) this past Sunday to take a look at the boat ramp areas. Yes, most of the water is still covered with ice, but with the weather we are having now, ALL of us boaters are "biting at the bit" to get our boats out. Our fishing/ski boat is in our garage, so it is extremely hard to walk right by it everytime we leave our house.
Well, hopefully, this will be our last winter here. It will be
"Charlotte, NC bound" later this year. Yes, we know that it gets humid there, but we will take the humidity and be happy with it. There is no place in America that has perfect weather.
So, even though we know that Old Man Winter most likely isn't done with Colorado yet, we sure can hope he is.

I think San Diego has weather that is as close to perfection as anywhere in the world. You just have to put up with a zillion people that want the same thing. Not even perfect weather is enough to put up with all the problems that come with sooo many people.

I relocated from Dallas last summer so this has been a real treat for me. I understand that March is suppose to be the snowiest month. So far that has been false as we have not received a single snowflake.

I'm hoping for a few more major storms cause I really have enjoyed getting free days off from my busy day job! Too bad the previous snow days were at the topic starter's expense

Comeon...another foot of snow please. I would enjoy the office closing for weather next wednesday.

Watch out, besides the grueling humidity from may till September, you do get some fun Ice storms there!!!! I should know...

That picture was taken from my home's balcony of the parking lot in SE Denver the day after the first blizzard in December I think. This is in the morning and sometime overnight 4 residents came home pretty much abandoning their vehicles whereever they could in the lot. Forget about trying to park between the lines. Many drivers just gave up and ditched their cars all over the city as feet of snow made driving impossible. I also have pictures of other cars 100% buried in snow.

My wife who dislikes cold and snowy weather wants us to move to Colorado. I keep telling her she won't deal well with the snow and winter. She's a very mild climate kinda gal.

We're thinking of moving to Highlands Ranch, which is why I asked where the location of your picture was taken. I showed my wife the picture you posted and she was kinda stunned.

Would you mind sending me the other pictures you have of "cars 100% buried" through email?

Partyof5,

Hate to discourage you, but a weather event like you saw in that picture (looks like about 8"-12") is fairly run of the mill here. I looked at the picture and thought, "That's not such a big deal."

If you do decide to come here anyway, I should warn you that snowfall totals do vary considerably throughout the metro area. The foothills to the west, Douglas County to the south, and the plains to the east can get signficantly more snow than other areas. If you are concerned about heavy snowfall I would discourage you from Highlands Ranch, Parker, Castle Rock, or anywhere in Douglas County or southwestern Jefferson County.
