I don't know if they over blowed it, but it's about blowed over.

In my opinion,...yes.... but these weather folks are entertainers and pursue higher viewership and more website clicks. Quite a bit about Northern Colorado getting “hammered.” Well, ok I guess .... but it was overstated .... those who have lived in snowy regions for a few years prolly viewed as just another big snow.

Salesmen and entertainers.

Up in the foothills above Loveland we got a nominal 20 inches. Power was out for about 4 hours and while it was a very slow day with all the snow, I expect we’ll be pretty much back to normal by Tuesday.

Could have been lots worse.....

Not nearly as bad here as it was for those folks in Texas.

Do you know if 34 is open between Loveland and Estes Park...?


Every day on this side of the ground is a win.

Simply based on the news reports, I believe it is.

Looking at the radar and the storm is curling back around like a low pressure system will do. It has moved north and it appears that eastern Wyoming and western Nebraska are going to get hit the hardest. We are expecting rain all night and it will be rainy for several days.

Hell, Denver got 18 inches. That is quite a heavy storm for Denver. Airport closed for a while.

Can't say but we got a lot of high winds and a crap load of dust/dirt in the air.

It started yesterday and is still going on now.

In the foothills SW of Denver at 8400'. We had a solid 24" this morning, and there's at least another 6" more since then and it's still snowing. The weather folk were a little off on the timing, but the amounts are accurate compared to the 2-4' predicted in our area. There are drifts easily over 4.5' in areas. All good here, it's not unusual for it to snow in Colorado. Most people have plow trucks and snowblowers and as long as you keep up on it, it's not a big deal.

We measured 26” in my backyard at 3 different places! I’d say they actually got the totals pretty close. West of us in Estes Park got between 3-4 ft! Denver area was on the southern border of the heavy stuff and where we are was right on the bullseye! My neighbors are glad I have a 24” Troy Built snowblower! I guess you could ask them if the weatherman got it wrong! This storm will put us well above average for snow pack and we needed it! Storms like these really only happen about every 8-10 years.

Got a light sprinkle of rain out on the Western Slope. No milk, produce running low, same for meats, and some shelf items are also low at the local City Market due to I70 mess and no trucks.
However the Safeway is fully stocked.
Nothing to see here, folks. Keep moving.

We have 20 or more. Hard to be accurate because the wind is causing significant drifting. Don't miss the days when I was "Emergency Personnel" and had to get out in this nonsense.

Now we can have floods in the burn areas. Again

I can still see my back 6 foot fence. In 83 it was drifted over

Colfax gas had 3 plows, 1 cop car, and a pickup pulling a 30 some feet travel trailer that I've seen. And a suburban now

Lights blinked, the 12 yo in me has the lamps all fueled

This could have been worse, daylight time kept a hour of snow away

Christmas '82 had similar snow, but much colder temps. Similar to March'03 so far.

I'll dig out the sidewalk and driveway tomorrow.

Supposed to get lots of sun later this week. Keep the gutters and storm drains clear and it will literally all be gone in a few days.

We got a bunch of snow and high winds at my home in Aurora.

'03 was a good one. We got 30+ inches in Fort Collins. I recall several roof collapses on commercial buildings and a local church.

Had a lot of fun in it though!
