I live in NY and I'm looking to relocate, all we want is a safe area that is good for raising kids so we can start our life while our first child is still young. I do wonder about weather in this area are the storms bad and frequent? My fiance has family in lakewood and I've been there once but that was not enough to help me out except that the views are beautiful.

I suggest perusing a national real estate site (not sure if I can mention one here, but there are several good ones) for the most up-to-date listings rather than asking somebody here to send you a booklet. The Denver Post is on-line, and it thoroughly covers the weather. Many smaller metro communities also have papers. You can find them by using your favorite search engine. Here's one for Highlands Ranch.

Local news media usually have internet sites, you can use google to find them Also try craigslist to see what is available and for what price if you can't get a hold of locally printed media. Combine that with Google maps street view and you can see what the neighborhoods look like.

Only major problem I see with Highlands Ranch off the top of my head is that it is on the extreme southern edge of Denver so if your job is north of I-70 your daily commute may become annoying quickly (depending on what you are used to, it's all relative).

Check the stickies at the top of this forum and use the search engine, neighborhood and school questions have been asked a bajillion times If you need specific answers that aren't addressed in them someone here can help you out.

thanks again I appreciate it, I will continue my search to see if this is the place for me, I really have not left NY so it's scary, especially knowing they have tornados

The weather is great here. We have the changes of seasons but not the extemes. Lots of sun and low humidity. As far as tornados go, you have a better chance of being hit by a boxing kangaroo than to even see a tornado.

This is Colorado...not Kansas, not Oklahoma, not Nebraska, and not north Texas...the movie "Twister" does not really apply in this state Do not fear the tornados...see Jerry's response to flamingo in the "Highlands Ranch" thread for another accurate assessment
