    Yeah, I can tolerate the rain albeit they had a massive drought this summer.

    Its a toss up between the three cities.
    I have lived in all 4 times zones, i would have to say denver is the best place i lived. I live in OC right now but miss the seasons in Denver. The weather is perfect in Denver because you get everything, and not for too long. You dont get the long winter of the midwest or northeast, and you dont get the brutal summer of the southwest/desert areas. As soon as you get sick of the cold, it gets warm, and as soon as you get sick of the heat, it gets cold.

        I am sick of the cold. Does that mean it will be warm soon? Because Kathy Skankbin is on 9news saying its going to be nipply.... nippy tomorrow. What am I saying, nipple.

          I just became single (broke up with a girl who decided to move from NYC back to her native Florida).

          I can stand traffic be it I live in NJ and main reason I want to move is just want a change of scenery.

          I work in web (do HTML, video editing). I haven't looked for a job in several years (been at the same gig for five years now).

          I can tolerate the rain of Seattle if I decided that would be my option.

          I like the outdoors and just picked up hiking as an activity I like to do.

          I can tolerate the cold and even the rain, so that wouldn't be a factor and the winds (especially Chicago).


          BTW Tombstone, I'm originally from Alabama. So the jokes can continue haha.
          Actually, if people are moving to the West from somewhere, I'd prefer they move either from another Western state like Utah or from the South. I don't care what the high and mighty East coast or Calitards claim about how edumacated they are, I'd take a friend from the southern states any day of the week because they have something the other edumacated morons lack, common sense!

            Ya, but you're currently in an area where women outnumber men, and hot ones outnumber the ugly ones. Cannot go wrong with HB/Newport.

                at gang violence being an issue in Denver. Maybe if you are in a gang. OP, whats your set? I walked colfax after 2 a.m. on the reg and never felt in danger.

                Agree with Tombstone on the southern folks, prefer them over the east coast tards and don't get me started with the backwash.

                    Bitch, I told you to shut up and go make me a turkey pot pie.

                    Out of curiosity OP, what is it that you want from where you are planning on moving? What do you like about where you live now and what don't you like? I'd imagine it might be good to look at demographic info on each city and I am sure there are many sites with cost of living and all that info and year round weather stats as well as the pros and cons of various cities.

                    I've lived in Seattle and I liked it, but then again I liked England and they have somewhat similar weather patterns though England gets far more rain. With Seattle I found it a wonderful place for outdoors activities and I liked playing in the downtown. There are some great places to live, but it's not cheap. Of the options you've listed I think Denver is actually the least expensive of the 3 options. The issue with Seattle to me isn't so much the rain as it is the lack of sunshine. I've lived in wetter climates then Seattle (England for one) but what always got me was the lack of sun. Colorado for all it's cold ass days (and it does have a few of them and snow on Halloween sometimes as well as freak days in July) does have a lot of sun and open skies. I miss the open skyline of the west. I live in VA now and while I love the autumn leaves and the beautiful lakes and trees, I miss the big open skies (I grew up in Arizona and California mostly so I am keen on warmer weather). If I get back west I want to move to Denver. I have a house in Colorado Springs I hope to sell next year because I don't want to go back there. The Springs is ultra religious and conservative, pretty and cheaper then Denver, but not as much fun as Denver. I love LoDo in particular but I'd probably live in certain areas like Lakewood (the nicer parts) or even Littleton. Highlands Ranch is nice, but honestly if always seems like the Stepford Wives were all cloned there. Downtown is my favorite part of Denver and of course the stadium. I love the mountains there and the plentiful out door activities available. Seattle has a lot of this too, but if I was going that direction I might pick Portland as it is more laid back and appeals to my liberal sensibilities and seemed like it was cheaper to live and Seattle is only 4 hours away by car anyway. Chicago I know nothing about but I figure I'd probably hate the lake effect snow and being that close to Jay Cutler again. (heh, I kid, maybe). Anyway good luck.

                      This.

                      I didnt think weather really affected me until i spent 4 years in Oregon. Its not so much the amount of rain, its that the entire winter is grey. if you're affected by weather even a little, i'd think twice about moving there.

                        I live in the city and county of denver and wished I still lived in Littleton where I grew up. If you speak Spanish or are a coffee shop and dog park liberal the city is great but certainly not for me, luckily the housing market is booming and hopefully I sell before the bust.

                            Called Denver and Colorado my home for over 40 years until health forced me to sea level in Phoenix. My daughter still has a guide and outfitter business in Montrose. Best damn state there is and I miss being there horribly. I traveled and worked in 1/2 the states in the U.S. and although they all have good and bad, it's pretty damn hard to beat Colorado. Denver is not what it used to be years ago when the traffic was light, but still a beautiful place that's cheaper than most places you go, especially the east coast and pacific northwest. As with most people, work will dictate where you call home, but given the choice, I would be back in Montrose, Grand Junction or the Springs in that order.

                              Also Denver has the best green chili in the world, so there's that.

                                Well the science says that it will indeed happen. Could be in 10 years it could be in 100 years. Who knows. But these mega thrust quakes are brutal. The one in Chile 3 years ago actually sped up the earths rotation and shifted it on it's axis slightly. And that fault is only roughly half the size as the one in the pacific NW.

                                I would still go there and visit and if I ever decided to live there, I would just be well informed of how to prepare for it, well at least the best you can anyway.
