You know you're from Colorado if...

People move onto the highway at 15 miles an hour. (This just happened to us today! Stupid truck!)

You have absolutely no recognizable accent.

If the humidity gets above 25%, you consider it "muggy".

You have been skiing less than 10 times in your life

You have a broken windshield.

You see no reason to travel to Aurora.

The only RTD bus you've been on is the 16th Street shuttle.

You think "South Park" is a place to stop for gas on your way to Buena Vista.

You have a flat tire in your refrigerator and your garage. (Nono, it's Fat Tire!)

North means "mountains to the left;" south is "mountains to the right;" and east and west are where all those damned liberals keep moving in from.

You go anywhere else on the planet and the air feels "sticky" and you notice the sky is no longer blue.

You can run up 10 flights of stairs without huffing and puffing.

You've stood on solid ground and looked down on an airplane in flight.

You know what the "Peoples Republic of Boulder" means. (We like to call it "Planet Boulder")

You've been tear gassed in a riot to celebrate your local sports team's victory.

April showers bring May blizzards.

"Timberline" is someplace you have actually been. Many times.

People from other states breathe 5 times as often as you do.

You've gone skiing in July. You've gone sunbathing in January. They were both in the same year.

You can name only two people you know who were actually born in Colorado. (Hey, it seems like everyone from around here was born in Colorado...)

You love your Broncos, your Avs, your Rockies, Nuggets - well you can't have everything. (Pft, Rockies suck too.. and football is just.. football...)

If it snows in the morning you expect it to be gone by lunchtime. (*nods sagely*)

You can name the states that make up the Four Corners.

You know what and where the Continental Divide is.

You actually get these jokes and pass them on to other friends from Colorado.
