Currently have at least 12" in SE Aurora. Going out every two hours to shovel. This last time there was at least 5" new.

Right now, at 3:13PM, in western Loveland (a couple of miles from foothills), it is still snowing and wind blowing pretty hard. I got an alert on my iPhone stating this snowstorm is now turned into a full-fledge blizzard here. We have multiple cracked tree limbs, full of snow. We have, at the very least, a foot and a half of snow. Most likely, more like two feet and more to come. Since this is pretty historic, I got plenty of digital camera, video camera and iPhone photos/video of it all. Had to put on my "stall mucking" boots in order to get the video and photos.

I've been scraping snow off my deck all day today for my dogs, and as of this writing, I've removed a total of 13 inches.

I got my front porch and part of my driveway as well, but I think right now, I'm going to focus on keeping entryways (including the garage door) clear of snow as best as possible. The rest of the driveway and the sidewalk will just have to wait.

At least two feet here in Littleton. We did the driveway and sidewalk late last night so it's good. Some sun will help but we've got A LOT of snow to melt so probably a few weeks..

We have got quite a number of snapped branches on trees. Some young folks, trying to get their vehicle out yesterday, slid and done some damage to other vehicles. Local law enforcement showed up. We got a real blizzard here on the west side of Loveland, just a couple of miles from the foothills.

Our temps will be around 60 this coming weekend, so there will be a lot of melting snow.

Now, the hilarious part, Boyd Lake State Park boat ramps are to open this afternoon.

It was a great storm. Sunday spent hunkered down, eating chili, shoveling every few hours.

Monday was beautiful out - sunny, blue skies, sparkly snow. Neighbors outside helping one another, teenaged boys shoveling in shorts.

The Colorado I know and love.

If the storm tracks slow and to the south, it'll be a higher total with fluffier snow, so 30+”. I’m gonna put some chips on a wet 15” in most of Denver proper, with some parts of the foothills getting up to 4’. Heavy snow is gross, so I’m pulling for a southerly track of the storm myself.
Granted, I’ve barely gotten out since the storm ended, and I’ve obviously got some confirmation bias, but I’m curious where all the 20+” totals came from. I stayed at my SO’s in Englewood, and the yardstick we stuck in the ground said 15” exactly. It’s possible that since his yard backs up to a park, there was a bit more of a wind-blown effect. North facing drifts were definitely over two feet.
