According to the National Weather Service in Denver, the near record snow falls in Colorado last year were largely the result of a moderate to strong El Nino pattern. Which is the fluctuations in the ocean temperatures. For this year the experts agree that the La Nina pattern is expected to be in effect, causing colder than usual sea surface temperatures. For Denver this means east of the mountain we will see more down sloping winds that will keep us drier and relatively warm. Hence, the record setting 70 degree temps today! However, being a native here you learn to expect the unexpected. Personally I love large snow falls as it is nature’s way of telling us to slow down and enjoy the beauty of the snow. Yes, it is a bother to shovel, walk on and drive in, but if you initially appreciate it for its clean and crisp natural process, it makes all the troubles less cumbersome. Here are some pictures I shot in my neighborhood after the December 21, 2006 two to three feet of snow we received. The storm was not anticipated to drop this much snow, nor to paralyze the city for 3-4 days, but it was absolutely breathtaking to ponder its magnitude yet to feel the calming effect it brought to this city. We may not see this again this as we did in 2003 and 2006 but it is bound to happen again in the years to come. I hope you enjoy the photos and I welcome your comments.

I have some truly awesome videos of the 12/21 snowstorm at my house, but I don't think my bandwidth host would appreciate me linking them here. Great pics!

Precisely! So much fell so quickly that you had to stop your everyday routines. Of course the roads were impassable and yes the mayor, the governor and even mother nature and the baby Jesus were cursed non-stop, and some still are cursing them. However, it you look at the snow for what it was, natural and a precious and much needed resource, a few days of inconvenience is totally worth it.

Really nice pictures. I love the pictures of the trees covered with snow. I especially like the very tall tree with the sunset shooting through it! Awsome!

It was calming unless/until you had to go to work.
