For those travelling, this won't be fun.
If it's any consolation for those traveling, the commuter traffic has been lightening up each day this week (holidays etc).

There's at least 6" here in Thornton.

We went to the Avalanche game last night and the roads were terrible. Almost impossible to see the lines on the road for I25. We saw someone do a 360 in town while we were parked. They bounced off the curbs.

Hmmm! I thought about this, and I guess my final answer is: take I-25. My rationale is that in bad weather, it's always best to be on a major highway, and out of the mountains.

Roads last night sucked on 25, but today everything was clear and great. A few hours can make all the difference in conditions here.

I didn't get on a freeway, but the surface streets were horrible this morning around 7:30. The only positive was that there weren't many cars on the road.

I should have clarified. I went out around noon, but my wife said her drive to work up 25 at 8am was terrible. Roads were completely snow packed and side roads getting to the highway were a disaster. She said she was the only person on the road though which helped I'm sure.

We ended up with a foot of snow! Not sure how much was technically from 4pm-midnight, but when I went out around 2pm, the sun was out and there was 12 inches accumulated on my car and ground. Now I just have to go to work for half a day tomorrow and holiday time!!!

P.S. David, glad to see the "plume" is back!

Yesterday was another one day wonder of snow, with the sun back as usual by late afternoon.

Purple blue sky, cold and sunny, snow on the ground - the perfect Colorado Christmas - is on tap.
