These were taken through the windows so they are not that good... gives you the idea though.

As of 9:20 AM there's a very light dusting of snow in Grand Junction. Thankfully, the roads are bare.

That picture triggers memories.

I remember so many days like that in Vail that I had to get up and go and work in that all day. So many days when I had cold, wet feet all day. My last winter one day like that I was buried in two feet of fresh snow and couldn't feel my feet or hands and was soaking wet. I decided the next winter to go to New Zealand(summer there) and that I did.

Now in PA, when the snow comes down hard, I go out and plow and then come inside to Hot Chocolate and I savor looking out the window at the winter, glad I'm not out in it.

Unfortunately, down here in the lower elevations of Boulder/Denver, it's not light and fluffy. It's wet, and heavy. But we also don't have anywhere near 18" yet.

here in nky cincinatti area when it snows (and it usually is freezing rain or rain) the snow is gloppy and 3 inches of our kind of snow has probably 0.5'' of liquid in it, in colorado 0.5'' of liquid may mean 12'' at higher elevations, I prefer powerdy snow it makes snowboarding much more enjoyable. You guys are lucky you can just go to your backyard or a hill and ski/board lol it never snows 36'' in a storm here we get winter storm warnings for 4 or 5 inches lol.
