Shockingly, here at my house in s.w. Longmont we already have at least 2 inches....we usually get not much compared to anywhere else.

It's not getting really started until mid-day, right? I don't think all hope is lost yet.

It's not here yet, it'll take awhile to pile up.

I'm gonna go to sleep so it can accumulate while I sleep, so I can wake up happy . Then I will promptly spend 2+ hours driving to Westminster this evening.

What I really hate is that the MAG will be sprayed everywhere and that stuff makes my car rust. I had a bunch of electrical shorts and the mechanic told me it is the MAG that they spray. It eats rubber, plastic, metal and brake lining. Nasty stuff.
To back up BWP below, the snow will insulate your plants, and won't cause permanent damage unless they're already pretty tall (mine aren't).

March/April and often May can be a heartbreaking time for Colorado gardeners and farmers. I've seen many a blossoming crabapple splintered into pieces, ancient evergreens felled, forsythia a soggy mush on the ground.
And yeah, it's not a snow day for those who *have* to go out in it.
But y'all need moisture--we do too, and if it makes you feel any better, we've had the coldest winter here in over 20 years.
Hang in there, and if you're out on the road, drive defensively.
We deliberately chose a later blooming crab apple when we bought this, our second Colorado home. It has barely started to leaf out. My friend's already has buds.

Fortunately, I am off today, but have to work tomorrow, which will likely be worse!

We've got about 6" in Boulder, and my office is closed.
