Coloradoans Are Obsessed with Weather

Two weeks ago I had lunch with the Direct of Marketing at the Fairmont Resort in Mani.  She was origionally from Boulder, Colorado and made the comment that people form Colorado are obsessed with the weather.  I had never thought of that before.  People in Maui can't understand it.  And if you want to meet a truly weather obsessed individual then talk to a giant pumpkin grower in Colorado.  Weather is one of the big determining factors for growing giants and we don't have great weather for it in Colorado.  On top of that add hail and strong winds and it can drive you crazy.

Two days ago in Denver the temperatures were in the low 70s.  The next day snowy and cold with about an inch of snow on the ground.  Today the snow is all melted and we are in the mid-50s.  Welcome to Colorado!

I think the easiest job in the world would might be as a TV weatherman in Hawaii.  Every day it is between 78-86 degrees, chance for rain depending on where you are located and the real news is only how much sun you will get that day.  Not a bad gig.  In Colorado I've seen the public nearly string up the weatherman because the forecast was 20 degrees off.
