Lmao, I lived in Alamosa for seven years, and I can say that the reason it's always sunny is because we never got any precipitation. It's a desert, and there's nothing but potatoes there.

I think it should be number one worst place to live in the State. But hey, second is pretty great too. I've lived here all 28 years, except a couple at other states for a short time. And I must say stay away from this town at all costs if you can! It's beyond horrible here. Yeah, it's absolutely breathtaking the views and mountains but the people themselves completely ruined this town. It's a hole new breed as outsiders have told me, saying they have never discovered such mean, stuck on themselves, hateful, bullying, loser jokes ever. Which I have to agree. There's no activity place to go for young children or anyone really. Very few for adults if you like golfing or disk gold. Horrible.

Mentioned it all above.

People from Alamosa and surrounding communities don't want His kind messing up a good thing. He is more than welcome to stay in the cesspool he lives in North of the Valley
