Welcome to the mountains!!

Nothing like getting baptized by some good snow storms...

How ironic is that to have a name very similar to the road upon which one lives. :coffee screen:

I am sure you'll love it here, just like the rest of us high altitude mountain folk.

Welcome! My family and I are also still fairly new (1 & 1/2 yrs), and my husband also commutes down to Denver 4 days a week. It's rough, but worth it!

This is a great place to live, especially if you like snow.

Congrats on making one of the best decisions of your life!

More like if you love dry weather and lack of moisture, this is a great place to live.

bubbs16 - you make a good point! I guess it all depends on where you are. We're near the top of Conifer Mountain and even with that string of really warm days the other week we still had about 10 to 15% of our yard covered in snow, and at least half of it averaging about 5 inches deep.

Coming from Alexandria, VA, where the average snow total for the year is 15 inches, even this winter still feels like a lot of snow; although, compared to last year, it's been disappointing. I'm really hoping tomorrow's storm gives us a good couple feet of heavy, wet snow!

But snow or no snow Conifer is exceptionally beautiful, IMHO. :)

The part you forgetting is Alexandria, Va averages over 40 some inches of rain a year. I'll take that over the 15 we get here That's almost 3 times the amount of moisture for the year.
