Great and Funny Article About Colorado Springs!

I stumbled on this wonderful blog post: Moving To Colorado Springs, Colorado – A Strange Experience by Ron Stauffer. He lists the quirkly things about Colorado Springs and everything he lists is so true!

His article is so amusing and will make anyone who lives in Colorado Springs (or has lived here) smile and laugh. There are really some very strange things that go on in our city.

Here's Ron Stauffer's list, but read his complete blog post on living in Colorado Springs to enjoy his thoughts and humor:
