To bad i was not able to take pictures inside broadmoor as we were in a hurry to run errands after picking my mom up. Was not able to take a picture of the Christmas house since there was a crew deicing the road and there were brown slush all over the road. Today was really a wonderful snow day.

It looks like you might be close to my aunt and uncle out there in Rye. They have 50 acres out there. Anyway, I think all the snow makes my uncle happy in the sense that it gives him an excuse to own a tractor...

Its a redneck thing. You might not understand...

Bringing this thread up to date.

KKCO News11 is calling for a winter storm warning for the northern and central Colorado mountains. 10 to 14 inches of snow is supposed to come out of this system.

So far, it's fizzled out--like most every other mountain snow event this winter. NWS has backed off on all the warnings, etc. for the northern and central mountains. Southern Colorado mountains got nothing.

A bigger storm predicted for the northern and central mountains this weekend, but it may fizzle, too--and southern Colorado probably won't get much out of it, anyway. The extremely dry winter continues.

The mean temp in GJ yesterday ( 1-19 ) was 39 degrees! That was the warmest day since 11-29, when the mean temp was also 39 degrees. The relative warmth I like, but we could benefit with more snow in the mountains.

It's not "fizzling" where I live. Eldora received 6" of snow and it's snowing this morning. I can't see the Indian Peaks today.
The weekend forecasts for the high country look great - more than a foot of snow predicted in most areas. Colorado Snow Reports & Ski Resort Weather Forecasts - Snowforecast.com

I received firsthand reports this morning that Vail Pass was indeed miserable--but more from the usual gaggle of idiots with little or no winter driving experience clogging up the road than from the adverse weather. From about Eagle on west, the roads are dry, and the storm is already moving east out of the mountains according to the NWS.

The storm forecast for this weekend looks a little more promising, but I'm not holding my breath about it. The driest part of Colorado--the south-central and southwest region--does not appear to be in line to get a whole lot out of this. Worse yet, the unseasonably warm temperatures and low humidities are evaporating a lot of what moisture remains in the existing snowpack. I have seen "the worm turn" in early dry winters like this, with the heavy snow months of mid-February to late April making up for a lot of moisture deficits, but the people I know who manage a lot of water supplies in western Colorado are increasingly pessimistic about that happening this year. They are already formulating plans for SERIOUS water rationing--probably the most restrictive seen since the dismal water year of 1977. Both agricultural and municipal water users will fill some severe pain this year if that scenario plays out. And with the increased population of Colorado since 1977, the water "shocks" are likely to be both more severe and widespread in their impacts. Pray for snow--and lots of it--in every storm that we are lucky enough to see for the rest of this winter.
