Looks about the same by me. The wind is still blowing so much it's hard to really tell though.

CCSD schools are closed.

The news is reporting near whiteout conditions on E-470. Portions of I-25 are closed.

It's a day.

I'm watching the CBS morning news and they just showed a reporter south of Castle Rock. I lived on the front range for a few decades and I know about that "Palmer Divide" when it comes to snow storms. Ahead of that storm they showed video of tornadoes in Kansas, Oklahoma, and Texas. This is one nasty storm system!

With the north wind Pueblo proper sits in the shadow of the Palmer divide thus with the down sloping wind gets no snow. However the southern suburbs of Rye and Beulah got pounded. In fact Pueblo still has not had a cloudy day this month! That means I have yet to see snow this season and looking out the next 10 days the next chance for snow is not till next Thursday or Thanksgiving.

8" snow in Ridgway, 12-14" in Ouray (schools closed today), 1" Montrose, 4" Cedaredge. Good wet snow in some places.

The funny thing is, I drove to DTC for work and I got there in the same amount of time I normally do since there were no cars on the road. I just took my time driving about 30mph. I don't have my snow tires on yet, but I'll get them on this afternoon.

Hopefully everyone else had a safe drive into work. There were plenty of cars spinning out and ending up in ditches.
^^^Copied from the Denver winter thread.

Here in the far north end of COLO SPGS (think I-25 exit 153, Interquest / Black Forest / Pine Creek) we had a hell of a night with strong winds all night long (and still now) that roared like a freight train. The house would snap and pop at times, hard to get any sleep.

Blue sky at Noon today, strong winds and lots of blowing ground snow. My back lawn is almost bare of snow, the wind scoured it off, but in front of my south-facing house are drifts 2-4 feet deep. I've a young man on the way to shovel me out, it will be worth the money.

Hard to say how much snow we got, but it snowed for a good 18 hours. Winter Storm Ajax lived up to its billing.

Grand Junction NBC affiliate KKCO reports an upper level disturbance coming through the northwest corner of the state. Most of this storm will stay north of I-70 with snow levels expected to be 5 to 8 inches in the Craig/Meeker/Steamboat Springs area. The high country should see double that amount.
