Upslope conditions here... 6" of snow so far and snowing heavily. I guess I can't complain too much about the 8 degree temp. It makes for nice light fluffy stuff.

Default I'll try to attach a photo

What a disappointment, especially for my kids . Most major school districts closed around Denver, but BVSD is open, including all the mountain schools. It's still fairly warm around Boulder, so, even though it's snowing - very lightly - not much sticks to the ground. Got some on my lawn, but almost nothing on the concrete patio or sidewalk.

Weather reports that Denver went from 71 degrees to 16 F. in an hour?! Plenty of weather out there!

I can assure you that is incorrect. The biggest temperature drop looks like it happened between 5-6 pm but it wasn't a 55 degree drop, more like 20-25 degrees.
Here is the weather history for one reporting station yesterday:

The storm hit Pueblo 4 hours late. Now blizzard conditions are developing.

The Blizzard warning is in effect till 6 pm and both school districts and CSU Pueblo are closed.

This is a picture taken about 30 minutes ago as the snow started.

back in pre-historic time [when I was in High School on Limon] the LCSD had a rule of thumb for Limon Highschool...The highschool faced south and was elevated 1/2 floor up to the front door...

When the snow hit, the rule for the town kids was that when the snow drift [from the N winds] reached the door handle on the front door, then and only then was school cancelled for the day ......

It varies from city to city. In Pueblo they canceled school because of the forecast and its not worth the risk of a blizzard when school gets out. Especially if the roads become icy like forecasted. Its only 1 day.

My kids' schools were closed too, which is really unusual in Widefield. We moved here in late December 2011 and only 2 snow days so far, both of them this year. The last time we had 8 inches of snow that morning.

This morning I looked out and saw no snow, but the wind was really fierce all night. Thought for sure they'd have school and told them to get ready. Then watched the news...which was good news...for them.

I still went on up to work, but am planning to leave early around noon or 1, hopefully it won't be too terrible then.

Wink Per unfortunate usual

Overall, it seems this "storm" will be as lamentable as this winter has been.

Maybe half an inch on the ground, with most of that accumulation early yesterday night. Then largely nothing until this morning. It is snowing at the moment as if half-serious. But not long ago, mostly in a technical sort of way. Judging by forecasts (being mostly wrong) and results, this snow will likely peter out before really begun.

Our tax dollars in the inane snowplow just went by, again—literally scraping bare pavement.

Hope I am wrong in this assessment, but the weak nature of this storm as indicator of all else likely portends what will be aggressive wildfires to come. Regret being as negative, but nothing this winter has given reason for much optimism.

BTW, the aspen are just beginning to bud. Not sure how they will take this snow, if most of it likely melted by tomorrow, colder temperatures and all. The first butterflies have been out and about the last three weeks.
