Really something special there. it can be 80 degrees and you can go swimming in fort collins in May. Then drive up to Bear Lake and its frozen over which is not very far from there. Its pretty nice there.
Except for all the bicycle ridin hippies that live there.
If I didn't have so much family and things invested here in central Iowa I would probably move to Colorado. If not there probably North Texas (Dallas Area)
Iowa/Northern Illinois/Wisc/Minny winters are worse than just about anywhere else in the world. Sucks when you look at a weather map of the US and it's warmer (by 10-20 dgrees) in Alaska than it is here.
I also think that last 3 or 4 winters have been especially cold and long. It's 42 in Chicago right now.
I'll give you Minny, but if you think Iowa winters are bad, I guess you've never lived in North Dakota. Not even comparable.
