Colorado Snow Blizzard--Oct 2009

We all know living in Colorado means snow can come at basically any time of the year and we can also experience all four seasons in one day. The snow storm that hit Colorado late Tuesday into Wednesday (27-28 Oct 2009) was a pretty good sign that winter is coming and mother nature means business! Colorado has has it's share of Major Storms in the past; this one definitely ranks among those. With snow fall totals sneaking up around 4 feet in some mountain/foothill areas and in the Metro Denver area reaching 13 inches at Channel 7 news station, Greeley receiving 12 inches and Boulder near 19 inches as of Thursday morning (29 Oct 2009). With the added ingredients of gusty winds from the North/Northwest visibility became a problem as well as temperatures dipping into the aching cold side. Snow drifts also present from the wind; personally at my house in Greeley after shoveling around 4pm Wednesday a mere 45 minutes later it didn't even look like we shoveled! I didn't get to take many pictures, but I'll see about posting some. Stay warm and stay home if you can!!
