When we lived in San Diego the 'Storm Watch' TV teams would be all over the place looking for any signs of a drizzle.
We are currently watching the WX reports from a PHX hotel. Looks like I'll never get to use the snow blower this year

All the transplants and tenderfeet have to have something to fret about, after all. The people who know Colorado climate know that this kind of storm is both common and actually necessary. It is these types of wet spring snowstorms that bring much of the best moisture for the mountain snowpack and and for the soil moisture necessary on the winter-dryness dessicated soils on the Eastern Plains. For all of their inconvenience and potential dangers and damages, spring storms are a critical part of keeping arid Colorado survivable. After the terribly dry winter much of the lower elevations of Colorado have had this winter, the more moisture we can get out of this, the better.

So, buck up little campers. It's Colorado in March. Don't like the weather--then move somewhere else.

I post it not because I don't want the snow but because I am exited about the prospect for a major snow storm in the city of Pueblo. I would love it if Pueblo got 12 to 24 inches of snow with heavy winds but since I live in the "banana belt" I will be happy with 4-8 inches lol

Jazzlover is right. These are the storms Colorado really needs. The Denver area has seen very minimal precipitation this season. It looks like one of those "Albuquerque lows" to me.

Where I'm at west of Grand junction will most likely be rain and high winds, like it was Sunday. The wind blew at a steady 40 m.p.h. all day. Sheesh!

If it is a classic "Albuquerque low" then that is the best way for Pueblo to get snow and we could easly get over a foot! I LOVE "Albuquerque lows"!

BTW as a side not I saw it on the Denver thread but I knew someone would get mad at me if I talked about Pueblo so I started my own in the Colorado main room lol

Default Snow Storm Just In Time

I have been watching the Colorado Rockies snow pack from here on the East Coast ever since we made reservations several months ago to ski at Keystone 5-10 April. I was starting to sweat it out a little bit as it looked like our spring ski trip might be a bust this year.
This snow storm is GREAT news! It's just in time. AND, The extended weather forecast is calling for snow virtually every day at Dillon right up until the day before we get there. Excellent!
[ OK... I know this post sounds a bit self-serving. I don't mean it that way. I truly hope this snow storm does not cause any undue inconvenience to anyone and that no accidents or injuries ensue.]

I don't think it's the transplant and tenderfeet who are fretting, it's the news media, who claim to be 'Coloradans'. I say bring it on... About time.
