In the good old days, Colorado natives had a dislike for Texans, who showed up at the winter resorts, and were a bit too ostentatious for the locals. When left coast real estate boomed, the Californians bailed out en mass when they discovered they could buy the same house in Colorado for 1/5 the cost (with 5 acres of land surrounding it). Two bumper stickers seen during that time:
“At Least the Texans Went Home after Ski Season”, and, later:
“Don’t Californicate Colorado”
Ah, but do they bring their pernicious voting habits with them?
