First of all, with the dryer climate in Colorado, you don't feel the temperature as much. It's not as humid, so when it gets cold, you really don't notice for a while. Second, Colorado has this weird habit of snowing and then getting really warm. There can be several inches of snow on the ground but it will be 60 degrees or warmer outside. "Four seasons in a day," as natives like to say.
