Let me help you buy or sell your home in the Pikes Peak area.
I moved here in 1995, and coming from a state where we had just experienced a 7.0 earthquake the year prior, it was refreshing to know that quakes like that were not probable in Colorado.
According to our local paper, Colorado Springs is one of the safest cities to live in the U.S.! Last week, the Gazette reported: "With tornadoes tearing through cities, killing hundreds, overflowing Midwestern rivers flooding millions of acres, and earthquakes and tsunamis wiping out whole regions of Japan, it’s fair to wonder what natural disaster might strike Colorado Springs.
First, the good news: The Pikes Peak region is one of the safest places to live when it comes to nature’s wrath. The risk of hurricane, tsumami and prolonged flooding on this high, dry plain are zero. Small earthquakes rumble every few years but the chance of a damaging one in the next 150 years is just 0.5 percent. The area’s most recent volcanic eruption was about 30 million years ago. Tornadoes touch down, but the buffering effect of the mountains make them rare and relatively weak.
Sustainlane.com, a sustainable development website, ranked the Springs the seventh-safest city in the country in 2008."
Yah, we may have inconveniences like the occasional snow storm which blows through. And according to my sister, we "have to wear socks in the winter!" But I'll take those any day over what I've seen and heard of other states. Simply said: Colorado rocks!!!
