I'm sure there are a lot of "snow loving" people in Denver and on this Forum who are wondering why people who hate snow live IN a "snow-belt" area! Interesting, hugh?????


[quote=denverian;16633678]Here in Stapleton we've had nothing more than a light dusting on the grass the first storm, then I wouldn't even say the 2nd storm was even a dusting. I currently have no snow on my property. Let's keep it that way![/QUOTE]

Nah, it's a trade-off for some people.

I for one, will never move somewhere it doesn't snow again. Unless I grow to hate it by then.

I think it also depends on a person's age and health issues. There are folks that just simply won't live in a "snow-belt" area and those that cann't. We know people in their 60's who have two homes and just prior to the cold air arriving and the snow flying, they are gone to their other home.

I'll call yesterday's mini-storm 0.5 inches.

By nightfall, there was none left on the ground, and the snow in the shade got cleaner looking.

YTD: 1.0 inches
Snow cover days: We'll call it 2 (if we count yesterday)
Snow cover in the shade days: 7, and counting

"Few Snow Showers Early" for tonight. I'm so sick of these forecasts being wrong.

It was so nice, warm, and sunny minutes ago (in Aurora) that I just had a tshirt on. Then in minutes black clouds, winds of 40-50 MPH came in like crazy. My blinds were flying horizontal. By the time I finished closing the windows it started to snow. Went from 58/60 F to 37 F at the moment.

That's Colorado!

November 17, 2010.

Yesterday, an unannounced and unexpected snowstorm blew into metro Denver (as reported by cowboyxjon). It snowed and blew like crazy til about 1 a.m. In many places, it didn't accumulate at all.

I'll call the accumulation at my home, "a trace".

The following places had the most accumulation:

North Aurora
Central Aurora
Montbello
DIA

I'll bet the Eastern Plains looked nice and white too.

The following places had a dusting:
South Aurora
SE Denver
Greenwood Village
Centennial
Stapleton

The following places had no accumulation:

Denver along I-25 between Hampden and I-76 (including downtown)
East Denver
Commerce City
Henderson

A co-worker reported 1.5 inches "on the road, in his cul-de-sac" in Westminster.

The roads were icy in spots come morning. I managed to slip and slide at Broncos Pkwy/Potomac St on two separate occasions , and at Alameda/Fairmount.

There's no snow in the 10-day forecast, but this one wasn't in any forecast either.

YTD: 1.0 inches
Snow cover days: 2
Snow cover in the shade days: 8
