John, as a Colorado resident, I want to clarify Larry's irresponsible
remarks. As you have probably heard, Colorado is a mostly rural state
made up of desolate prairies, deserts, and rugged and nearly
uninhabitable mountains. Yes, we do have some ski resorts, but that's
because it's so cold and it snows nearly year-round.
I don't have a thermometer because it's so cold they break in our severe
winters here in wintry Denver metro. But I'm pretty sure it's not going
to be 66 degrees and sunny today, the meteorologists working for our
local papers are hacks. In fact I'm headed out to the garage to put my
TR4 up on stands for the winter. Our classic cars are in such great
shape not because of the lack of salt on the roads but because most of
the time the roads are impassible. Yeah, that's it.
(PS while houses are cheap in Colorado Springs, it's because of the
terrible economy. There are no jobs here, and houses cost much more than
that here in Denver metro. There's no need to move here and run up our
housing prices.) ;-)
