Best Reason To Live Here in the Summer

As hot as our long, desert summer days get, and as much as you've tried to stay in air conditioning, when the sun sets in Colorado Springs (a beautiful reason on its own) the heat lets up, you can take a walk, and the evening can actually be enjoyable. The sky is big, the moon appears and the city streets come to life with couples, families, skateboarders. And on the nights that we're really lucky, the heavens let loose and fill the skies with lightning and coat the land with rain -- sweet, summer smelling rain that dampens the dust and fills the night air with the smell of life. Our night air. Our life. (CS)
