Rosie, I heard the opposite. Indications show that we will have a year very similar to last year.



I don't have a snowblower and I don't think I'll ever get one. A broom works just fine for me. I do live downtown, though, and we don't get a ton of snow, and the snow we do get is very light and fluffy.

We're making our move from Texas this weekend - my husband is already in Colorado. But I had to remind him to buy a snow shovel and leave it in the garage of the new house, and to make sure there's a scraper in his rental car!

We have a snow blower, mainly due to a driveway that is over 200 feet long.

I've been here for over three years now and I've gone to school in horrid conditions and then have had school be closed when we could have easily gone in and come home.

Definetely need a blower for that!!

Glad that the schools didn't do a pre-emptive closing like they did... twice? last year, that was silly. But sitting here at 4 sorta not wanting to drive home cause of the crazies out there. But alas I should just do it

Thankfully the students weren't crazy today. But having indoor recess was hard for them.

Last year we had closings mainly due to extreme cold, I don't remember any days due to snow. Oh well, I'm hoping for a delay tomorrow. ;-)

I thought it was last year, it may have been two years ago, that the weather forecast was much like today's, and we had school out. I work in D49, though, and we close for anything sometimes :P

No need for the snow blower today... but when you get stuck with 2 1/2 feet of heavy snow.. like we did 3 years ago on our driveway . then you will be just happy with that snow blower. But it sounds like that this does not happen where you live.

Glad that D20 made the right choice not to delay schools or close schools today.

Drove through Fox Park tonight.. and witnessed two very serious accidents! The snow today may not seem serious but the roads are icy out there.. and it will just go worse overnight. Watch out!

I am sure that snow blower will come in good use some time in the future

The snow in Colorado was all over the news here in Tucson today. Our local CBS station showed quite a bit of video from KCNC in Denver, and mentioned the power outages in the Denver area.
