Maybe Santa Fe is up the OP's alley too.

As for snow in Albany, it depends or can vary. Even Syracuse only got 60 inches, which half of it's average and even in average years, it get taken care of quickly.

I'll add my 2 cents on the weather in Denver in comparison to the East/Great Lakes region. Summers are extremely warm but humidity is extremely low. It will be in the 90s but without humidity. It will be sunny every day with an occasional afternoon thunderstorm that rolls in fast and rolls out fast. There are very few days year round where you wake up and it's cloudy and stays that way all day. Spring and Fall are a mixed bag. We got our first snowfall this week (a couple of inches that didn't really stick). Last year we had a snowstorm mid October but on Thanksgiving it was around 70. I've only lived here 2 springs but to me it seems we jump from winter right into summer. Compared to Midwest/Northeast our winters are milder and like everyone else has said in January it can be 60 on Monday, snow 2 feet on Tuesday and be 60 on Wednesday. The snow melts fast (thankfully not in the mountains though). Denver is a lively fun place to live. Boulder is great too but it is extremely expensive.

Why? Our average first snow day is Oct 19. It was pretty late this year.

Most of the mountain west gets snow earlier b/c of the elevation.

Really? I say that because Syracuse, which is the snowiest major metro doesn't expect snow until late October at the earliest and usually comes by the Thanksgiving weekend, if not a little bit later. We've only had a "trace" so far. It's going to be in the mid to high 50's by Wednesday too. So, the snowfall can vary in terms of timing and severity.

Athens is about mixed.
Totally agree,

You can walk down the street in most of Atlanta and hold your partners hand with no problem at all, and I mean same sex.
