Re: tornadoes in Colorado

    I wish I could answer your question. I have spent little time in THAT
area. ABout 10years ago my husband at the time was looking at Colorado State
University as a place to go for his PHD in Hydrology. The campus also has a
good Horticulture and LAndscape department and has a wonderful view of the
foothills of the Rockies.
    It has grown(sprawled) quite a bit in those ten years as most of
Colorado has. And with the drought, gardening has been more of a challenge.
In the FOrt Colllins area, water is more abundant since the population is
smaller there. It is z4-5.
    The political climate is Republican with a Governor who came from Texas
originally and who currently seems to be telling bad jokes about the French
in public.We also have a US representative who wants or wanted a marriage
amendment to the Constitution and a US senator of American Indian descent
who wants to drill into the native amerian reservations for gas and oil.
Kind of lively newspaper reading...keeps us groaning and laughing.

    Lots of outdoor activities in addition to gardening...300 days of
sunshine. This alone keeps SADD away for me.You can still probaly buy an old
missile silo on the plains for about $10,000  ;)

What else would you like to know?
