Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow!

Well, for a change, the weather forecasters got it right. Last night, it was calm and in the mid-forties. Around 3am, that all changed, light rain soon turned to snow and the winds got up, blowing 30-40mph, blizzard conditions arrived just an hour or so later. I couldn't get to work in Denver (what a shame!) and by 10am, they closed I-25 from Colorado Springs up to Castle Rock. The snow finally stopped falling around 4pm, but it is still windy. We had between 12-18 inches of snow and drifts reported from 3 to 5 foot in the area. All schools were closed and the majority of banks and businesses were closed too.
Here's a few photo's I took from the warmth of the house and some I pulled from the local news website's.


Couldn't see out this morning! ...........Deck...........

This would have been about the same time i was leaving beautiful, warm Florida. It was approx 85 degrees, very low humidity. I am now back home, where it was approx 78-80 degrees, zero humidity. I am sorry for you saps...I mean poor folks.
