5 inches at work this morning here in CO Springs! We needed it badly here, this storm doubled our season total to date on my golf course.

No kidding? Just down the hill from you at CCC (Country Club of CO), it looks like we have about an inch or maybe slightly more. But I haven't stepped outside yet. I like snow days! :)

I'm on the hill east of CCC, and we have at least 4 inches (and still falling). Based on stratigraphic evidence, it's all fallen since about 5 am (my newspapers were under all the snow :)).

I guess I better take a step outside for a dose of reality! Definitely not working today though! Thank you snow gods.

Yeah Darin we got a good amount. I had 1" on my porch in Old CC, surprised when I got into work. Again we all needed it.

We had over 18" of new the last couple of days up by Pearl Pass. My buddy said he got 30" in Silverton. Maybe we busted out of the dry cycle finally?
