You Know You're From Colorado If...

You'll eat ice cream in the winter.

It snows 5 inches and you don't expect school to be cancelled.

'Humid' is over 25%.

Your sense of direction is: Toward the Mountains and Away from the Mountains.

You say 'the interstate' and everybody knows which one.

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

You buy your flowers to set out on Mother's day, but try and hold off planting them until just before Father's day.

You grew up planning your Halloween costumes around your coat.

You know what the Continental Divide is.

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.

Every movie theater has military and student discounts.

Everybody wears jeans to church.

A bear on your front porch doesn't bother you.

When people out East tell you they have mountains in their state too, you just laugh.

Dani, I had to laugh because ever since moving from Colorado Springs in July, my daughter Tara (who now lives in KY) can't get over the fact that there are school closiings and the like for "a mere foot of snow".... I am sure she'd agree with you 110% !
