This is probably the oddest number one ranking Colorado Springs has gotten. Zillow.com has named us Santa’s favorite city for some reason. Why?…
Colorado Springs, CO: Colorado scored high in every category deemed important to Santa. In addition to having many single-story homes with fireplaces and large lots, the city is crawling with kiddos. Santa will also like the weather — snowy, with lots of clear days.
Let’s analyze: single-story homes? Yes, but what decent sized city doesn’t?
Fireplaces: I suppose, though most people never use them
Kiddos: The east side and northeast side are suburbia-heaven, big check.
Snowy: Not usually and DEFINITELY not this year. The Gazette’s article is dead-on by saying our snowiest month is March. I suppose our climate fits in well with other Top 10s like L.A., Albuquerque, Dallas, El Paso and Phoenix. It also contradicts…
Clear days: It almost gets old being clear and sunny all the time (…almost)
Another thing that proves this was yet another Google article: why is the flag for Colorado Springs out by Lamar? Magazines and websites might be head-over-heels for Colorado Springs and Pikes Peak, but they can’t find us on a map! (here’s a hint, it’s right smack dab in the center of CO!)
We do have NORAD tracking Santa and I love Colorado Springs but is this an award we should be proud of?
Sorry, I couldn’t hear you over all the snoring….
