Colorado

I’ve been at a loss for interesting topics to write about. Maybe because it’s always sunny here so the outdoors call my name or maybe because this move is consuming my brain and my creativity (probably this option).  In either case I found some interesting tidbits about my home state.  If you’ve ever lived in CO you will know what I’m talkin’ about.

When the weather report says it’s going to be 65 degrees, you shave your legs and wear a skirt.-for me at least 70!

It snows 5 inches and you don’t expect school to be cancelled.-more like 10 inches!

You have no accent at all, but can hear other people’s accents – and then you make fun of them.-I’m ashamed to say this is true 🙂

‘Humid’ is over 25%.-not a fan of humidity

Your sense of direction is: ‘Toward the mountains’ and ‘Away from the mountains’.-so true

You think that May is a totally normal month for a blizzard.

You grew up planning your Halloween costumes around your coat.

You know what the Continental Divide is.

You don’t think Coors beer is that big of a deal.-not a fave of mine-but we all know what my favorite beer is….any thing from New Belgium-yum!

You’ve gone off-roading in a vehicle that was never intended for such activities.

You always know the elevation of where you are.

You wake up to a beautiful, 80 degree day and you wonder if it’s going to snow tomorrow.

You don’t care that some company renamed it, the Broncos still play at Mile High

Every movie theater has military and student discounts.

Everybody wears jeans to church.-what’s wrong with wearing jeans to church??

You actually know that South Park is a real place not just a show on Comedy Central.-bee-a-u-ti-ful!

You know what a “Trust Fund Hippy” is, and you know their natural habitat is “The Republic of Boulder”.-don’t trust a hippy!  just kiddin’

You know you’re talking to a fellow Coloradoan when they call it Elitches, not Six Flags.-good ole Elitches.

When people out East tell you they have mountains in their state too, you just laugh.-right on sista’, I would think it’s hard to beat 53 peaks at 14,000 ft.!

You go anywhere else on the planet and the air feels ‘sticky’ and you notice the sky is no longer blue.-so true, never moving from this state!

PS.  I “stole” this from this blogging mama –milehighmama.

  1. Haha, I like these! I agree with hating humidity. We get our share of it here, but nothing like Florida or New York or anywhere on the East Coast in the summertime. I grew up in the desert, so I’m very acutely aware of humidity when it’s around. I can take 110 degree heat, so long as you keep the humidity away.
