Colorado Springs Posted On: 6/14/2012 9:03:56 AM
For many days out of the year, Colorado Springs is a warm and sunny place to live. However, when it snows, it really snows. The city streets are not plowed well. When it hails, it really hails. Just this week we had a major storm that completely destroyed my mother's beautiful yard and garden, and caused a lot of flooding where I live. The drainage system is obsolete and can not handle the amount of water after it rains or when large amounts of snow melt quickly. It is common to have a major snow storm one day, and sunshine with temperatues in the 60s the next day. There seems to always be a lot of weather-related road construction that makes travelling around town difficult. This is due to the warm, cold, warm cycles the we have, as well as the ancient drainage system. Colorado Springs is also a very windy place to live. We have a short growing season, usually May 15th to Mid-September. We have had snow in both June and August.
