We have 5" of heavy wet snow on our deck (Nederland vicinity). Seems to have stopped for now...

Wink Estes Park, etc.

There is certainly snow in Estes Park, and as far as I know the first time actually in town this season. A good coating of heavy wet snow on all the trees, with portions of the roads beginning to turn white.

In fact, the divide up out of Estes Park on US 36 had an inch or two of snow on the road, with the only clear area twin tire tracks from traffic in either lane. Which was going nowhere uphill at one point as all vehicles stopped due at least one bad driver. One of them a large pickup which was sliding sideways in trying for traction. Presumably road conditions are better now, if perhaps more snowpack.

It seems there is snow on the mountains practically to the edge of Boulder. Although earlier this afternoon the cusp between rain and snow on US 34 was at Drake. Within a short distance and change in elevation the conditions can be quite variable.

According to the news, we had 9+ inches in Monument, but the wind was blowing so hard the drifts were much deeper.

Thx 4 the info on the freeze warning Joss, but that still doesn't count. We wait.

Vfr, nice pics and I love the seclusion I see in the pics. Not too much of that if you head much north and surely south of your pics if I assume your general area properly... black hills/Palmer Divide area? What I mean by that is the fact that my wife and I were leaving Denver today for back home and I noticed the sprawl from Lone Tree all the way throughout the Castle Rock area with cluttered human influence on each and every hill, nook, and cranny. Much the same throughout the foothills and hills of much of El Paso County as well. Now when you get to the foothills along the I-25 corridor south of Pueblo... through Pueblo, Huerfano, and Las Animas counties to the NM border, you might see secluded rolling hills like that too... hopefully for some time to come.

I did see some snow mix in with the rain early Saturday morning on highway 50 west close to I-25. Not a lot but it was fun to see.

We are in Woodmoor, a subdivision in Monument. The back of our home faces north. I can see County Line Road(Palmer Divide) across a 900 acre pasture, about 2 miles away.
I can see your point about development along I-25. For sure there is less south of Pueblo. But if you were to fly along I-25 you would see many thousands of untouched acres, even west of I-25. Try SH105 north out of Palmer Lake next time you drive to Denver. Lots and lots of beautiful open space along the foothills. Also the area east of I-25 north of Monument up to Castle Rock/Franktown is very open and mostly untouched, except for a few ranches.
Now back to winter wx

Speaking of SH 105, that's where my sister lives, just about a half mile from the Larkspur turnoff. Was there over the weekend as we went to the Bronco/Charger game. They got 6 inches out of the storm, snowing steady and finally letting up around 5 in the afternoon.
