For those who desire to be mountain people and live in the mountains (especially if moving from a lower elevations or a city) it is best to think carefully because mountain living requires considerable work. After 16 years living in the mountains full time we are either coping with winter or utilizing our non-snow season to prepare for winter.
Whether you live as we do or not, it is wise to "be prepared." This prediction could mean many things, but here in the mountains of Southern Colorado, we could be faced with brutally cold temperatures, very large amounts of snow or worst scenario would be both with strong winds added in. The aspen leaves have now fallen off the trees and it is getting colder each night.
When I was a young boy in the Boy Scouts, the motto was "be prepared." That especially applies to living remotely and at high altitude in the mountains here in Southern Colorado. Not knowing what may happen, we must anticipate those situations where potential problems could arise.
