It is incredible what you can do with high clearance, 4WD, and, most importantly, good snow tires. Most people just don’t get it.

Just heard on the radio that Governor Polis has activated the COLO National Guard as a resource to deal with a massive snow event.

Per his twitter Jim Cantore is in town. Does that mean it's going to be a dud?

Inches or feet?

Started snowing in Southeast Aurora about an hour ago and we've already got an inch of accumulation on the ground.

It's been snowing here in Central Park, Denver since about noon, but accumulation is pretty low so far. Sidewalks and streets are still clean pavement and the rocked area of my yard is just now starting to show a trace accumulation. Hopefully that will keep the total amounts down but it sounds like we've still got another ~36 hours to go

Friend of mine lives in Castle Pines had his boss call at 10am asking him to go into the office in Centennial to handle something. My friend said is it really that important it can't wait and boss said no. Made it pretty clear the weather was not an acceptable reason to not do this today. Sure enough my friend was involved in one of the accidents on I-25 that made things a mess, guy in front of him lost control and my friend clipped him as the guy basically let off the gas while sliding. Boss called him asking why it wasn't done yet and he told him he was dealing with the accident and boss was still ranting about how he needed this done immediately.

Amazes me how some people's callous regard for the weather leads to stuff like this. Demanding someone who works from home 80% of the time to drop everything and drive in dangerous conditions is stuff I thought we could start moving past but guess not.

I wouldn't start putting any stock in snow total predictions until tomorrow or Thursday. The models are starting to come into agreement now. I've got the snow blower ready in case it gets gnarly, but right now I have an uneducated hunch it'll be 12-18" - which is big, but nowhere near the Blizzard of 2003. For the record, I did take ONE atmospheric science class in college. It was taught by the late Bill Gray, CSU's famous hurricane forecaster.

It's too bad Rotse bailed on Denver and C-D. I'd love to see his take on this storm. "OMG we got 10 feet of snow in 6 hours. It was the worst blizzard ever."
Guess what, folks. The storm track shifted by about 100-150 miles and the heaviest snow has moved further north. Cheyenne is gonna get nailed tonight. Denver could still get 1-2 feet of snow, but it's looking a lot less likely than it was even 24 hours ago.

Blizzard warning for the entire I-25 corridor from Monument to Wyoming until midnight tonight. I-25 is currently closed from Lincoln Ave in Douglas County all the way to Monument, and all the runways at DIA are closed due to blowing snow and poor visibility.
