Denver Post says 14 inches of snow is possible for Denver, up to 4 feet in the high country where it will snow on and off starting Friday (tomorrow) and going into the middle of next week.

We have two medium sized dogs. They love the snow and make their own paths when it gets deep. It is funny to see.

Yeah, that's the bummer with these wet, heavy spring storms. I'm hoping that my ash tree and the neighbor's maple will come through unscathed. I think we might be just early enough in the season to avoid breakage, because I see just the barest hint of leafing. When the storms hit in late April, the risk of damage is greater.

Boulder and Larimer counties between 6000-9000 feet; our watch is now a warning. From Friday through Sunday, 2-4 feet.

Love an extra snow storm. I'm always for free water from the sky. I find popcorn and hot chocolate to be a nice treat during a snow storm. Gives me something to look forward to every time.

Oh, and having an extension painter's pole on hand that you can go out and wack the trees and bushes with helps to.

I will try to do that. I think my wife has a video of them playing in the last blizzard while I was shoveling.

For me, snow is like a heavy, cold, wet restraint that suffocates me and locks me in a prison cell and strips me of my freedom to drive and roam freely outdoors. A big white depressant pill, that casts a blanket of misery and doom over my shivering body.

Wow! Not sure how to respond to this, but do tell: Why here rather than Arizona or Southern California or Florida? Surely you noticed that it does snow here more than just occasionally.

We moved here from coastal Orange County, CA. I had planned to never see a flake of snow again in my life! But a job transfer changed my personal plans lol!

I do want to go back to California. (I'd never live anywhere east of CO due to the nasty bugs and humidity, and Phoenix is just too hot). I love Denver and tend to deal with snow in winter ok, but I hate this time of year. Happens every year, where you get the nice warm, long days, things are blooming, then a ridiculous snowstorm comes along. In the 10 years we've lived here, I recall only one nice April where it felt like Spring and it didn't snow/freeze late.

Hopefully our boys agree to college in California so we can move back in 8 years Outside of the snow, I love Denver.
