You know your from Colorado if...  
You're from Colorado if:

You'll eat ice cream in the winter.

When the weather report says it's going to be 65 degrees, you shave your
legs and wear a skirt.

It snows 5 inches and you don't expect school to be cancelled.

You'll wear flip flops every day of the year, regardless of temperature.

You have no accent at all, but can hear other people's. And then you make
fun of them.

'Humid' is over 25%.

Your sense of direction is: Toward the mountains and Away from the
mountains.

You say 'the interstate' and everybody knows which one.

You think that May is a totally normal month for a blizzard.

You grew up planning your Halloween costumes around your coat.

You know what the Continental Divide is.

You don't think Coors beer is that big a deal.

You went to Casa Bonita as a kid.

You've gone off-roading in a vehicle that was never intended for such
activities.

You always know the elevation of where you are.

You wake up to a beautiful, 80 degree day and you wonder if it's going to
snow tomorrow.

You don't care that some company renamed it, the Broncos still play at Mile
High.

Every movie theater has military and student discounts.

You actually know that South Park is a real place not just a show on TV.

You know you're talking to a fellow Coloradoan when they call it Elitches,
not Six Flags.

A bear on your front porch doesn't bother you.

You've been to the original Chipotle near the DU campus on Evans.

When people out East tell you they have mountains in their state too, you
just laugh.

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

Oh damn, Six Flags bought out Elitches?

these are all perfect, my favorite being the East Coast Mountains comment, I keep having people tell me there's skiing around here but I just look at them like they're nuts.

so true! these really hit the nail on the head. I've been telling my kids about the 5" of snow thing, and Casa Bonita, and Fargo's in Colorado Springs. I wonder if that's still there ...

Casa Bonita!
Man, there is just _nothing_ like Casa Bonita. It defies description. Now I'm craving sopapillas. Yum.

You also forgot: native Coloradans keep snow chains and ice scrapers in the trunk of the car from September through May, and the people who don't are those damned Californians. ;-)
