moderate climate in colo?

by /bio/joanna »

I think Multi-State is definitely the more useful place for this discussion.  We don't really "close" discussions here but do start new ones to zero in on aspects of the questions and to attract posters who might not notice the discussion in only, say, Colorado.  And Muti is right at the top which doesn't hurt either.

In that other thread you had started, Joanna had mentioned in quite some detail the items you are now asking about: The foothills where you find Grass Valley and Nevada City (nothing to do with the state of Nevada where Las Vegas the gambling town is located). West of Lake Tahoe, north of Sacramento - great hilly country with good climate and still many semi-rural nooks and crannies, but not too far from big-city "civilization".

If she sees this, I'm sure Joanna will respond again, meanwhile look up those two names and expand your research from there.

Wally's about covered it, pretty much what I said.  I live in the area now having grown up on the Peninsula, very near Palo Alto.  At this stage of the game I wouldn't dream of living anywhere else, housing  costs and quality of life in particular the considerations.  Sacramento Airport an hour away.

(Say the word and I'll move this to Multi-State for you so you don't need to start over.)

it looks like we have many places to research -> visit. just what i was hoping for when i posed the question. many thnx. best to all.  ...and joanna, if you think multi-state is a good idea, pls feel free to "move the thread"- or perhaps re-phrase my question/headline entirely- and let me know, so i can subscribe to that discussion. whatever you think best.

Grand Junction is in the fruit basket area of Colorado - not anywhere near a major city, four hours to Denver if the roads are clear and not congested (can you say I70 crawl?), a bit longer to Salt Lake City, but at least with an airport. Could be a bit chilly for somebody who fell in love with Palo Alto's climate:

But if the "away-from-it-all" factor is ignored, in its favor is the fact that snowfall is light and snow doesn't last. It's classified as semi-arid.
