Snowy and Cold February – Living in Boulder




We have experienced very cold temperatures this month and the snow has stayed around longer than normal. Living here, you soon learn that the city doesn’t plow interior streets and that typically the sun comes out and the snow melts in a couple of days. This year, the snow has piled up and the cold temperatures are hanging around.


It hasn’t kept the locals from getting out and the visitors from coming to Colorado. We just returned from three days of skiing. The slopes are crowded, and the restaurants, businesses and movie theaters seem to be busy. Many are also out using the cross-country ski trails. If you are planning on visiting Boulder in the near future, you might want to spend some time cross-country skiing in North Boulder Park, then go to downtown Boulder, which is a short distance away for a hot drink.


If you are thinking about living in Boulder or the surrounding area here are some of the newest home listings in Boulder.
