If you don't like the weather in Colorado...wait a second, it'll change

This is a special message to all of my Texas friends. DON'T use that phrase regarding weather in Texas EVER again. That particular phrase was CREATED for Colorado weather. One example (of many):

Monday - Wednesday, April 28-30, 2008 - 75-80 degrees, beautiful sunny days.
Thursday, May 1, 2008 - high of 40 with nearly white-out conditions. To those of you in the warmer climates, that means it's snowing like crazy!!! And, the snow is even sticking to the ground because there's just so dang much of it! I've lived in a number of different locales at this point in my life, and I have just never seen anything like Denver. 70 one day, 20 the next. Blizzard in the morning, sunscreen at 2. Every day (and yes, I do actually mean every single day) in the summer, the sky starts out absolutely crystal-clear. By noon, big black clouds roll in over the mountains and it rains (like crazy) for about 20 minutes. By 1, we're all back at the pool again, with no sign of the tornado that just passed over. Very odd...

I know, I know, nothing makes me happy, huh? I complain about Las Vegas because I will probably melt in the sun, and I complain about Colorado because it snows in May. I'm a malcontent, let's face it. If I keep moving West, maybe someday I'll end up in Hawaii??? :) I'll try not to complain about that.

Apparently those little identity letters I have to type get sneaky after 1:00 a.m. and change between the time I type them and when I click on whatever button it is that I click on. sheesh...just can't get good identity letters these days!!!!
