The snow finally hit Pueblo and I was able to make my first snow video!



This is my first attempt and not the best. I hope to improve as I make more. Yes I will make many many more!

I decided to take some snow videos of downtown Pueblo.



The snow picked up after I took this video so I took one more.



It is snowing even harder now. If it keeps up I might shoot another video later.

Rooftop snow here in Pueblo. I had to work in it last night. It didn't get below 32 so I didn't have to plow any snow or throw any salt.

We got enough in Pdub to keep the fields white all the way west, but the dirt roads muddy as Coz mentioned.

Congrats to j96g. You win the grand prize. Rep points coming your way and see ya all again next year.

Looks like we might be getting another snow storm Wednesday! Hopefully now that the ground is colder in Pueblo more of the snow will stick.............

It looks like Pueblo and Colorado Springs are going to miss out on this next storm as the wind will be from the north. For us that means down sloping wind, from the Palmer divide, so it drys out the air.

I'm not sure what the point is in posting all of these forecasts of snow events that may or may not materialize. I'm an amateur climatologist and I'm probably more interested in climate and weather than most people, but I find this drivel quite boring--especially in the climatic context that, well, anytime from October to May snow can occur just about anywhere in Colorado. Yawn. And, so what if it DOES snow? It snows here every year--there is nothing noteworthy about it. In San Diego, it might be unusual, but a "snow day" in Colorado is just another day. Posting these weather forecasts is as pointless as posting that "the sun will shine somewhere in Colorado today." Wow, what news that is!--I should post that every day on this thread.

If one wants to be titillated by a weather forecast, then mosey over to Weather Forecast & Reports - Long Range & Local | Wunderground : Weather Underground and salivate over the forecast--click on the "Scientific Weather Discussion" and have an out-of-body experience reading the Weather Service discussion of the next few days' weather--but leave this thread to discuss when a truly "epic" weather event actually occurs.

I am the OP and this thread is not about "truly epic weather events" if you want a thread for those kind of events in Colorado then start one. This thread is for winter weather in Colorado and that includes "epic" events as well as light snow showers and even sunny days or rain, whatever weather related event people want to post about.

As far as your first paragraph. I LOVE snow. Yes it happens every year in Colorado and that is one reason I live here. I could never live in a city where snow was unusual. So I will continue to get excited when it snows in Pueblo rather its the first or last snowfall of the season.
