2. The worst months to move in, are during late fall and winter - from October's end through April. Denver's altitude exposes the tendency for weather conditions to change quickly. Thunder storms and even tornadoes or snow and ice have been known to upset schedules.
3. Homes in Denver tend to be of similar size to what Canadians have grown accustom to. While possessions you want to move will more likely fit your new home, not shipping them and buying new will have attractive potential.

The realities of living in Denver include:
• While Denver is known for nice sunny weather, it can change almost instantly. The high elevation also means you need to be aware of sun burn and UV exposure.
• Denver has and is growing rapidly. Locals are feeling a bit crowded as they work to deal with growth in the face of a lovely place to live. When you add that to the tourist traffic each winter brings of this primary ski destination in the USA, frustrations can flair... even for the long wait times to get to the ski hills.
• Denver is a city of mostly young (i.e. under 50) Caucasian folks. They love the outdoors, scenery, and laid back life style. Dress is casual and practical.
• The altitude of Denver brings lower levels of oxygen and is dryer than many are used to. Not drinking enough fluids can be problematic. Give you body awhile to get used to the changed oxygen and atmospheric pressures, by getting a little extra sleep.
