You know that potential snow storm I mentioned a couple of days ago? Well, it came, and it brought its friend – 20-40 mph winds – too. Put together and one ends up with +12" of snow. A couple more inches may fall overnight, but the the belief is the worst is over.
Luckily, we didn't need to drive anywhere today. But those that did often found themselves confronted with some very bad conditions. The main highway between Boulder and Denver was shutdown, and parts of both of the major interstates that bisect Colorado had sections closed to due road conditions and accidents... one being a 40 car pile-up.
