Born and raised in Colorado. All over the place.
The one thing that everyone I talk to seems to agree; it's a crapload windier that it was 20,30 years ago.
Fort Collins was always hella windy. But they had flat plains to the east and north.
Places like Colorado Springs were pretty fortunate seeing as how they have a long, ginormous mountain range in their front yard.
Now? Hella windy.
On the bright side, the giant smog cloud / inversion is a thing of the past. Used to be you couldn't see the city of you were driving in from the burbs.
Really don't want a climate change bootchfest.
