What a difference a year makes! Last Christmas season found those of us living here in Eastern Colorado buried in snow. We had 10-12 foot drifts in several areas of our ranch. This year, the snows have been of the 3-6 inch variety with very little wind! Great news as it keeps our soil moisture content up, but is very manageable. The real estate market is comparable in this area as well. Last winter, the continued snow and ever-present grey skies reflected the bleak real estate market outlook. This year, things are looking much brighter as we enter 2008. It is a great time to locate and purchase rural property in Colorado!
