Bad cellular reception in Colorado (Boulder, Broomfield, Louisville)

August 27, 2017: My old cellphone (an iPhone) just died a tragic death, so I’ve been looking at cellphones, and also cellular carriers. Skipping the cellphone part of the story, cellular reception in Colorado is notoriously bad. I can barely make a phone call with AT&T in my apartment in Broomfield, CO, and I also have problems when I travel around nearby Louisville and Boulder.

Today I finally found a good map to show the problem at OpenSignal.com. This first image shows their cellular coverage map for AT&T in my area:

Drive back from Golden, Colorado (and Lady Cab Driver)

While driving back from Golden, Colorado on November 10, 2016, I happened to be listening to Lady Cab Driver by the artist formerly known as Prince, and wondered if these days he would have called it Lady Uber Driver. I thought it was interesting how society in the present moment has an effect on music and writing.

And here’s a gratuitous photo of some cattle on the right and wrong side of the fence near Golden, a big field, and some mountains.

The back roads from New Mexico to Colorado

This is a photo from the drive from Santa Fe, New Mexico north to Colorado, taking the back roads (Route 285) rather than the expressway. I took this photo in March, 2015.

A child, a dog, and a mask

I saw this statue of a child, a dog, and a mask at the Foothills Hospital (Boulder Community Hospital) in Boulder, Colorado on October 28, 2020.

Another amazing Colorado sunset

I had a lot of chest pain last night, but if anything, these days that tends to keep me focused in the present moment, and make me grateful for each moment. And fortunately the universe has been giving us some amazing sunsets here lately in Colorado.

I had to go to the hospital in Boulder, Colorado this past weekend, and took this photo while driving in on Arapahoe Road. There are several beautiful views of the mountains and Boulder as you drive west into town on Arapahoe or South Boulder Road, and this is one of them.
