Blizzard in Colorado

Snow is falling at 2 inches per hour in most of the Denver metropolitan area today. A blizzard warning is in effect through noon tomorrow, Thursday, December 21 from Monument Hill northward through Denver, Fort Collins and into Cheyenne, Wyoming and the adjacent plains.

Weather predictions for the Front Range, foothills, and mountains are up to three feet of snow by Thursday. Winds are out of the North with sustained wind speeds of 30 miles per hour at times, sometimes gusting to over 40 miles per hour. The snow amount for the Denver metro area is predicted to be 14 to 24 inches.

Authorities are saying to stay home, don’t travel unless absolutely necessary.
Blowing and drifting snow is creating nearly impossible travel conditions.
Air travel is also being impacted by the blizzard. If you’re flying into the Denver area, contact your airline to see if you’ll be able to land.

Hey - my entire family lives in the Denver metropolitan area. I'm SO jealous!!!

It's raining here in Philly. (as usual)

I hope that you can stay cozy in your house and enjoy the beauty of the snow.

I survived the Blizzard of 1982, but still miss Colorado, though.
