Yes, this has happened - not sure why.

I hope they are correct that they will have no trouble selling it; real estate is ultimately local.
This exactly.

We are experiencing more people moving in than out here....and families that grow up here stay here.

Or at least try to.

Coming home to Zion - if you catch my drift.

This morning it was 20 degrees, snowing and about 3 inches on the ground. It was nice to sit in front of the fireplace with my coffee, knowing I didn't have to go to work. I've been retired since July 1, 2009 and STILL loving every second of it!

Well here in Western New England today and the past few days have been like heaven after so much loooong winter. It's warm, comfortable (60's), sunny, slightly breezy, could even sit on the deck in shorts. Even the rain during the night was welcome. I wonder about where you are, why is it still winter? When does your spring arrive?

The reason I scratched Colorado from my list was winter seems to never end.

Switched out winter stuff for spring/summer clothes and got rid of 3-33 gal trash bags ready to donate to Disabled Vets. Now I'm hitting the shoes - hard to let go of those.
Right - we are to have 6-10" or sleet/snow in the next couple of days whaaaa - I've don't remember it ever being like this so late in April.

LOL, your brief springtime glory is over I think New England is beating your state to the finish line, that said please do not send your snow and sleet our way.

The snowiest months in Colorado are March and April, coldest is December. I'm in western Colorado, but moving in a few weeks to a small mountain town about 7,000 feet elevation. I've lived there before and one summer it even snowed on July 4th! I love it! Where I live now summers are 100 degrees every single day and I hate it. Summers where I'm moving to are in the high 70's

Last Thursday, a high of 51, low of 34. Yesterday, a high of 94, low of 67. WTH? I had the heat on one day and the A/C a few days later. I'm too old for this crap.
