I agree with that. The severity of Denver winters is way over-rated.

I never thought that, but the simple fact that snowstorms that big happen on a frequent basis and that the snow stays for a few days is still enough to classify it as far from a mild winter.

Mr. Answers, Denver is your hometown, IIRC, right? That's got to count for something!

hehehe, it just occured to me that whichever one of these cities you pick, you won't really have too many regrets since with the exception of Cleveland, every other city on this list lies along the Interstate 70 corridor. Cleveland isn't that far from I-70 either, only about 120 miles to the north of it. So it's a fairly easy drive to all of the other cities on this list...all you need to do is stay on Interstate 70, with the exception of Cleveland, which would require you to either to take I-76 east from Denver to Interstate 80 and simply remain on that...or if you decide to take I-70 instead, simply take I-71 north from Columbus

Yeah dude, that actually counts for a lot. That definitely makes up for not being in the midwest.

Denver's a substantial drive from Columbus, though....
