Ok I am officially jealous. Great picture......

BTW the wind changed direction and is now coming from the north. Because of the Palmer divide the wind goes down the mountain and drys out the air. So the snow stopped and the sun came out. Unless the wind changes direction again Pueblo's snow storm is over. However I can see where the southern suburbs are still getting snow.

To get that full weather person effect, if desired, aside from graphics, one could do some editing and at times in front of the camera, with it on a tripod. At Weather.com they always like to send their weather person out in the midst of a storm for dramatic effect. So maybe get a fan to blow a blizzard across the 'reporter,' and hold onto something tight, as if about blown away.

It will vary, but the region of Estes Park seemingly without as much snow as Nederland, as the mountains to the west caught it.
Thanks! I am thinking about going in front of the camera to do a weather report. Never thought about a fan but maybe that will be the only way I can show a decent snow storm in Pueblo lol. I am using these small storm to get use to the new I Phone camera and posting videos then when Pueblo does finally get a large storm, who knows when that will be , I will make a even better video.

Thanks, Idunn and Josseppie. It is quite beautiful, the snow is very light and fluffy. Our current temperature is 12.
This is an upslope storm which is why we received more snow. Our wind direction is from the east and if you look at the radar you'll see there is no snow to the west. Eldora reported 8" at around noon and we now have 11" (we are 8 miles NE).
A location 7 mi SE of Boulder is reporting 13" - that's the most I have seen reported:
National Weather Service Text Product Display
Just when I thought it was clearing (saw patches of blue sky and sun) it began to snow again.

The wind changed direction and Pueblo has upslope again! It's getting cloudy and I am keeping my fingers crossed the snow picks back up.

Josseppie -- where's your video?
We ended up with 11.5" yesterday. That makes 24.5" since Thursday and it just started to snow again...

We got down to -7 this morning - thank goodness the sun is shining!
6.5" of snow last night. Counting the inch we got on Wed. night that brings us to 32" this past week.
In the entire month of December 2010 we received only a foot of snow.

Wink New Mexico & I-40, etc.

'Portions of Interstate 40 east and west of Albuquerque, parts of Interstate 25 south of Socorro and Interstate 10 near Las Cruces were closed for a portion of the day.' [1]


An interesting article on the snow and cold in New Mexico. This storm seems to have come in Monday, and gone as fast, but leaving snow across the state, and unusually as far south as Las Cruces. With cold temperatures as well, -15 in at least one place, although cold in Colorado as well.

This may be of most interest to those occasionally asking, or thinking that the southern route to the West Coast always clear and easy. This serves as a good example that it is not always so. Not sure about the high country of Colorado, but at least in some places nothing but vividly blue sky, whereas snowing in New Mexico today. I-40, being more usually clear than I-70, has been closed both east and west of Albuquerque. With people in such places as Grants opting for the safety of a motel room rather than the road. I-25 and I-10 have been affected as well.

Good day to be by the kiva fire.

Thanks for this.

In the past two weeks, I've gone back and forth to CA via I-70, and encountered almost nothing snow-wise (there was a teeny bit at Vail on the way out). I then did I-25 down to Raton on Thursday (as mentioned earlier), and was trudging through snow from Pueblo southward. Let's just say that would not have been a good time to be a Californian coming to Colorado via the "snow avoidance route".

Even the way that "almost never has snow" can have it just like I-70 can.
