Dorothy M., left, and Arlene D. sit on a bench in the snow outside the Wyndam Place Senior Residences in Colorado Springs on Thursday. The two have been friends since Dorothy moved into the apartment about a year and a half ago. “We sit outside long enough to have a couple of cigarettes then we go inside,” Dorothy said. Arlene said that rain or shine, they make sure to come outside for a smoke break.
