  • You know you're from Colorado When.....

    You have absolutely no recognizable accent.

    If the humidity gets above 25%, you consider it "muggy".

    You only go to Central City when friends are in from out of town.

    You have been skiing less than 10 times in your life

    You think 5-points is a ghetto.

    You are the third car to run a red light after it has changed.

    You think only stupid people get lost in your town.

    When giving directions, you never say "Turn left, turn right", it's always go West, then South.

    During a thunderstorm you wonder "which I-25 underpass is flooding".

    If it rains more than 2 days straight you compare the weather to being in Seattle.

    You voted for higher taxes to fund Coors field, but voted down taxes for public transportation.

    You see no reason to travel to Aurora.

    The only RTD bus you've been on is the 16th Street shuttle.

    You carry your $3,000 mountain bike on top of your $500 car.

    You own a big dog named Aspen, Buck, Cheyenne or Dakota that wears a bandanna.

    You've never seen the tourist attractions in your own city.

    The entire top of your head is bald, but you still have a pony tail.

    You personally wouldn't pay $10 per head to drive up Pikes Peak unless it was the only mountain on earth, but you tell all our house-guests to do it.

    You get depressed after one day of foggy weather.

    North means "mountains to the left;" south is "mountains to the right;" and east and west are where all those damned liberals keep moving in from.

    You go anywhere else on the planet and the air feels "sticky" and you notice the sky is no longer blue.

    You consider a three-piece suit to be a pair of shorts, a sweatshirt and Birkenstocks.

    You see your East Coast relatives now more than when you lived there.

    You think gun control is a steady hand.

    You can run up 10 flights of stairs without huffing and puffing.

    You've stood on solid ground and looked down on an airplane in flight.

    You know what the "Peoples Republic of Boulder" means.

    You're a meat eating vegetarian.

    You've been tear gassed in a riot to celebrate your local sports team's victory.

    You can drive over a 12,000 foot pass in 4 feet of snow, but can't get to work if there are 4 inches of snow.

    You know the correct pronunciation of Buena Vista.

    When you visit friends at sea level, you can drink a case of beer and not get a buzz.

    Your car insurance costs more than your car.

    You have surge protectors on every outlet.

    April showers bring May blizzards.

    You see someone riding a Harley in a snowstorm, and you look closer to see if it's anyone you know.

    "Timberline" is someplace you have actually been. Many times.

    You know what a "Chinook" is. You know what a "rocky mountain oyster" is. You know what a "fourteener" is. But you don't know what a "turn signal" is.

    A bear on your front porch doesn't bother you nearly as much as a Democrat in Congress does.

    Your golf bag has a 9-iron, a 3-wood and a lightning-rod.

    People from other states breathe 5 times as often as you do.

    Having a Senator named Nighthorse doesn't seem strange.

    Thunder has set off your car alarm.

    A sudden loss of cabin pressure is not a big deal.

    "Where we're going, we don't need roads!"

    You know where Doc Holliday's grave is.

    You can recognize the license plates of all 50 states on sight.

    Driving directions usually include 'Go over ____ Pass...'

    You've used "checking for ticks" as an excuse to get someone naked.

    You've gone skiing in July. You've gone sunbathing in January. They were both in the same year.

    You get a certain feeling of satisfaction from knowing that California and Texas are both downstream

    You know the elevation of a town, but not its population.

    You never pack away your coat and sweaters.

    You can name only two people you know who were actually born in Colorado.

    You love your Broncos, your Avs, your Rockies, Nuggets - well you can't have everything.

    You or someone you know plays golf 12 months of the year.

    You don't have AC in your home, but you use it in your car all winter long.

    If it snows in the morning you expect it to be gone by lunchtime.

    You can name the states that make up the Four Corners.

    You know what and where the Continental Divide is.
    Ready for the friggen season already!

    My Colorado Love.....

    Those are great!!!

    So speaking of 5-points...

    When I was in high school, my friends and I would get out our fake I/D's, go to a local liquor store, buy our 2 liter of "purple passion" and drive around 5 points.

    A few times ( and I am not kidding) we heard gun shots.

    We would always go in a music store on one of the 5 corners and look at music. It was all rap and all the dudes working in it would be smoking pot, but for 4 white boys coming into their "hood" with collared shirts and 2 liters, I think they thought it funny.

      Good story! We took my ex sister in law down E. Colfax when she was about 10 yrs old, we were used to all the crazy stuff you see down there. We're driving down the street and her eyes are glued out the window as we're telling her stories of the people we see walking down the street. She looked up at us and said....I don't ever want to go down this street again!

      She's 22 now and we still give her crap about that.

            You are 10000% correct.

            I live in Aurora ( Southeast) and it does get a bad rap.

            the people I work with give me a hard time and say I live in the "murder capitol" of Colorado.

            I just tell them, Aurora has two parts.

            Don't go any north then Alameda if you don't have too.

            Aurora is so BIG that you don't have to go anywhere if you don't want too. Just like any other big city.

            Denver has no room to talk if they want to crack on Aurora.

              What happened in the 90s?

              I was too busy doing nothing to notice anything!

                That's about the time that the news was making Aurora out to be the Bloods/Crips gang haven.

                      Those are pretty good GEM..

                      I could relate to some of those since I lived there for 6 years.
                      Do people still put up orange and blue trees around Christmas...?

                      Also, I used to remember orange and blue hostess snowballs..

                      Man, I really miss Colorado.....

                              Especially since when you drive into Loveland there are no mountains around unless you look WAYYYYY to the West!! Too funny.
