Mother Nature knows how to test Coloradans, whether she's teasing us with a snowmageddon or throwing it down.

And we say, "Bring it on."

We are Colorado, after all.

We adapt.

We adjust.

We go with the flow.

And live life to its fullest, even when the snow flies.

So when the snow piled up across Colorado this week, these residents shared just how to win in winter.

A Real Colorado Cook: Chillin' With Chili

A heavy spring snowstorm causing power outages? No problem for us, as Gwen Kraus shared to the Discover Colorado Facebook group. Her solution: chili on the barbecue. No power for eight hours in Florence just means more time to simmer.

We know, though, this isn't just about a power outage.

We are Coloradans. We grill year-round. (Have a favorite trick for grilling in the snow. Let us know. You can even chat us up on our app.)

It's Easy Being Green in Colorado

This Coloradan Has Winter Perspective

Robbie Gellhaus shared what to do with 30 inches of snow in Estes Park. Get a little wild with plush moose and rams to capture this "possibly National Geographic award-winning photo!"

Shovel with a sense of humor

A heavy, wet snow can't dampen our spirits. People like Daras smile while shoveling (or at least bring smiles to her neighbors) we can't see if she's smiling in that dinosaur suit.

Go WIth the Fido Flow

Ryan Lange called this a dog walk ... we call it transportation. Coloradans don't get snowed in; we get out — one way or another.
