如果不要钱,就算是不会骑自行车,也得租一辆绕西湖推一圈。

这样的便宜还能不沾?

"Austin may be coming out of the recession faster than any other U. S. city" Oct 8, 2009

Yueyin,

This was in the local news yesterday. According to a builders' magazine's online poll, Austin has the healthiest real estate market in the nation. I guess it wasn't for no reason that Rick Perry blurted out the word "secede" a while back.

Notice that they also mention that Austin's warmer climate continues to attract retirees, and that last year the city's population growth was greater than 4%. I wish it would slow down somewhat. The traffic on I35 and Mopac is just murder.

Steve,

但是,我决不支持“德独”。看来德克萨斯人具有“德独”的传统。:D

Colorado’s winter might be Texas’s summer Oct 29, 2009


This is today. I am sure I’ll have to do the endless job all over again tomorrow although it’s still October!


This was just a few days ago in the Botanic Gardens in Denver, CO.

Too hot, too cold ... Oct 29, 2009

Most people who move down here from the Northeast invariably say they don't miss shovelling the snow, that's for sure. But on the bright side, I would look at it as good exercise without having to go to the gym

Black ice on the highways in the winter is also something always to watch out for in snowy climes.

We actually had a very wet and cool October here in Austin. On more than one occasion I had to put on hold the painting of the outside trim of the house that I was doing. But thank God for the rainfall that alleviated the long-lasting drought situation somewhat.

铲雪的滋味可与健身房锻炼大不一样。昨天我铲雪时天还在不断地下鹅毛大雪。今早一看,地面又积了厚厚一层。通常我们是各家自扫门前雪。但大家不光是只扫从自家车库出去的车道,还会把沿马路的步行道也给扫了,以便他人散步、遛狗(社区内的马路由政府负责)。这个风气确实很好。昨天,一位邻居还用他的铲雪机把我们附近几家的步行道全给铲了。真是活雷锋!;)

科罗拉多的雪非常干燥,就跟面粉似的。你若想捏个雪球都捏不起来,更甭提堆雪人。所以这里有很多世界著名的滑雪场。每年世界各地都有人专程来这里滑雪。每年可滑半年雪。能够人工造雪的滑雪场则时间更长。

引:Colorado’s winter might be Texas’s summer

That means Colorado很热,但比较热的地方还能下雪,Texas就真的冷了。做"侯鸟"也不错,视季节两边飞。

redred,

不是这么讲. Texas 夏季很热, Colorado 冬季多雪. Yueyin 的意思是 Colorado 冬天和 Texas 夏天一样令人头疼. 当然只是开开玩笑而已. 两地都非常好, 但任何地方都有美中不足之处罢了.

Yueyin,

是这样. 美国人普遍地乐于助人, 我以前也用亲身经历的一点小事提到过.

Play with words Oct 30, 2009

谢谢 redred 的评论和 Steve 的解释。昨天有人说,One man's meat is another man's poison,我就套这个句型开了个玩笑。

不过冬天时,科罗拉多确实也会有几天很热,甚至气温达摄氏30度以上。这里的日照时间比加州圣地亚哥还长。

我也有过类似经历。我在路上抛锚或发生撞车事故时,很多陌生人都会热情地伸出援助之手。 当然,也有人夜里在路上抛锚后被坏人抢劫或伤害,但好人总还是比坏人多得多。

【气候】

科罗拉多的气候通常是晴朗而干燥的,但依海拔高度的差异,气候状况也有极大的变化。该州高山地区夏季凉爽,冬季则是寒冷多雪,山峰部份有时终年被深雪所覆盖。某些山区一月的平均温度为摄氏零下八度,而七月的平均温度则是十三度。平原地区一月的均温是零下二度,七月的均温室则有二十三度。落基山区每年的降雪量可高达1016公分。丹佛全年的降雪量可达150公分。
