I do not appreciate the cold weather in Denver, CO, but I still decided to take a job in the mile high city.
- I had a couple of locations to pick from, but Denver seemed like the most interesting city.
I guess the temperature during the Winter season would be cold and freezing, so I chose an apartment with a gas oil furnace and radiant heated flooring. It was our top priority when choosing a location to live. I looked at a few apartments with forced air heating, but I had our mind on a location with radiant floors throughout. This home was $200 more each week, but I knew the radiant heated flooring would keep me warm enough during January, Feb, and March. The first Winter season was even colder than I imagined. I didn’t enjoy going outside unless I was wearing a coat, gloves, boots, and Winter season gear. I lasted approximately 3 years in Denver, and after that every one of us begged our boss to find me a position anywhere down south. I didn’t feel the cold weather, ice, and snow would affect my health in a downside way, but every Winter season I was experiencing physical issues like dry skin and hair, nosebleeds, and a sore throat. When I had the option to leave anywhere new, I jumped on the option even though it was moving to Texas. The differences between the more than 2 places are like night and day… Occasionally I wonder if I made the right decision. This state is entirely too red and too conservative for a liberal woman like me.
