Iowa-to-Colorado Translation Guide
It's not difficult to find Iowans in Colorado. We're everywhere. Even more, I'm sure more Iowans are getting ready to move to Colorado right now. As an Iowan-turned-Coloradoan myself, I thought I should provide this translation guide.
I'm certainly open to comments, additions, and revisions!
