    Falstaff, I have a friend that lives in Charlotte. I'll hit him up tomorrow to ask what kind of shit you should try to do while you're there on your free day.

    This is true.

    I went to school with a couple of first cousins that dated all through high school and ended up getting married a couple of years after they graduated. The girl didn't even have to change her last name.

    Where'd you move from?

    I was impressed with Colorado after I went for the first time a few weeks ago but also figured the winter would be like in hateful eight.

    It's only like that in the mountains. It's very mild on the front range. Can get a bit cold, but it's still sunny.

    East Coast-- All over but most of my life in VA.

    Most people think of Denver like that but it's not. I'd take winter in Denver over winter anywhere north of SC on the east coast. People who have never lived out west just don't have a concept for what a difference super low humidity makes. They know it's nice in hot weather but they don't realize it also makes cold weather much more bearable. East coast cold chills you to the bone, where west coast cold often feels like it's only skin deep. Sounds funny but it's true.

    Plus like people have said, Denver is very sunny. It snows several time a year but it will be sunny and 65 the next day so the snow never stays around more than a day or two, unlike the northeast, where the same snow sticks around all winter and gets fucking dirty and gross by January.

    Mountains are totally different. Go west of Golden Colorado and you are talking lots and lots of snow.

    I don't think there is really any humidity in the air for mid west winters. Its just fucking cold. Doesn't help that the sun is absent for 3 months between Dec and Feb.

    My friend from North Carolina finally responded to me. He said:

    It wasn't a very informative answer, but at least it works.

    Can confirm your friend's assertions. Source: I live in Raleigh and own a brewery.

    We're not open yet and I'm still working my full time job I had before starting the brewery. Most days I work remotely but Mondays I always go into the office to do enough rep grinding to "work" remotely instead of work remotely the other 4 days.
