Well not everyone has snowshock like you lol. One of the appeals of Colorado is the access to skiing and snowboarding. People who loathe snow, would not be open to moving there.

I'm the opposite, I grew up in the sun and showers belt of south Florida, and am moving to Minnesnowta. Minnesota does not get the snow upstate New York does, though. I love snow, but Upstate NY is overkill to me! I wanna be able to walk on the snow, not tunnel through it!

But its not for you to move to Denver or Fort Worth; its for the OP. And you should give her something that's not as exaggerated as "storms in October and May" which is a half truth. I mean, not that you can really talk much about weather, considering you do live in America's oven I don't see how a few random out of season snowfalls is worse than months on end of 100+ degree weather with very little rain, but different strokes.

Count me in the group that thinks enduring 100 degree temps for weeks on end is ridiculous. Stifling heat sucks. That's a big reason why I left the sweaty taint of North Texas. Lousy summers.
Fort Worth does not get triple digits every day for weeks.Average high in the summer is about 95.

I know it doesnt, but Phoenix (where FirebirdCamaro is) does, and DFW does get sweltering heat for weeks on end in the summer even if it's not above 100. DFW is a sauna from about the middle of June until well into September. It sucks - unless you like taint and back sweat.

Ya DFW has a harsh summer and Phoenix summers are just on a whole other level compared to even Texas.

Again I've seen 97 as the heat index at 11 pm in Dallas. Unacceptable.

I'm not crazy about Colorado, and I'm looking forward to leaving, but in all fairness we have a long winter but not a particularly rough one. We get 50 inches of snow in an average year, but it's spread out over 7 months. We get some Spring snow, but so what? It happens. It'll be gone on Saturday. We've had quite a few 80 degree days this Spring, and many more 60-70 degree days. It also cools down a lot at night here. If it hits 80 in the Spring, the night time temp is probably 40, as opposed to the 67 degree lows in a lot of places.
