Since we have all four seasons here you can expect snow year round, even in the spring. Roads get nasty and you need snow tires and some good gear if you expect to get anywhere during severe snow storms. Planning is very essential, especially if you have to drive or walk long distances. Delays should definitely be expected along with many accidents. It doesn't always snow that bad but when it does you need to be prepared, but overall the weather is nice, very bipolar but nice.

I love Aurora, Colorado. I know many people have a negative opinion about it but that's what the news shows. The city does have some issues but overall I believe the quality of life is improving immensely. With the new light rail line to soon open in the spring of 2016, Aurora is very excited. More people and moving here and soon it'll be the New Jersey of the west. I absolutely love it here.
There are a lot of employment opportunities in this area. I live near a popular mall, many convenient stores, Walmart, and ADT Security. I feel like there are job opportunities, but they are low paying jobs.
