My best friend of 16 years is moving to Colorado in a few weeks. They will only be there for 3-4 months, I believe, before moving to Texas for good. Since we live in the Deep South(where the heat index is still 105*) I was wondering if y'all could answer a few questions.
Oh, yeah, she'll be moving to Grand Junction, CO, which is 22 hours away from where we are.
1- What's the weather like right now? Is it still pretty hot there, or has it started to cool off? When does the weather start turning cold?
2- Will it snow in the part of CO that she is in? The schools here let out if it starts to snow and we've never gotten more than an inch or so.LOL
3- How is the cost of living? Gas here costs $2.48/gallon for regular, rent is $400-600 for a 3-4 bedroom, our electricity is about $200/month(that includes trash and sewer). Is CO a lot higher than that or about the same?
4- Do y'all know anything about Grand Junction? Anything there to do or is it a small town?
Thanks if you can help answer any of my questions. My friend has never lived outside of Louisiana, so I don't think she knows what to expect. If there's anything else you'd like to add, feel free.
