There's a saying that goes,"If you don't like the weather on Colorado. wait 10 minutes. And at times, our weather is very applicable to that saying. But most of the time, the weather here in Colorado is predictable. We are very fortuate to not have floods, hurricanes, or tornadoes, or any natural disasters.
It's a small town, community-oriented, environmentally conscious, healthy and it has a lot of personality!
