Let's compromise, shall we call it the "Octizzard"?

You are welcome! You know how the Denver media blows everything out of proportion... they get a few inches of snow and they call it a blizzard
I do not envy your weather conditions this morning. Stay safe!
We are getting a break up here. The sun is trying to peek through and I can see the foothills surrounding us now.

Nice, that is just spectacular.

The initial snowfall map is out, looks like a classic upslope.

I like the cam there at Nederland..... http://www.dickgilbert.com/colocam-nederland1.htm

Gotta love those Hondas (I have a CRV). The news here was just talking about CO snows - they laughed at you all!!! But, this is MN and our day is coming. Seems your weather front will only hit our SW corner - we will and are just getting tons of rain. If this rain was snow - . Stay safe and enjoy this (if you can).

Thanks! We may set up a webcam one of these days. That one always looks "murky".
This one is usually clearer but the picture isn't good today: http://www.wunderground.com/weathers...p?ID=KCONEDER9

Pinecliff reported 43.8", so far I think that is the most I've seen.
The only bummer about this storm is that the ski resorts didn't get much at all. Eldora is reporting 30" but they won't open for weeks.

Default Has to be record lows...

4F is the low for the Pueblo area tonight.

Your cold snap is ruining my plans.
If I wanted single digits I'd stay here in Dakota.

Coloradan's fix your weather IMMEDIATELY!

Very funny!
Yikes, that is too cold.

The storm in eastern Colorado is truly a blizzard, saw it on the noon news. What a mess.

Hmmm, not sure where you're getting a low of 4 in Pueblo, but I do see the temps will rebound quickly and into the 60's over the weekend.

Things around the state should be rather pleasant, to almost balmy this time next week.
