Got about 2 feet at Pine Junction. Seems like it's done now, but got a good dumping. Enough my dog felt that peeing on the deck I shoveled was more convenient than fighting through the snow :roll:

The news guy told me that 16 inches of snow fell, but that the first 14 inches melted, so when I looked outside and saw 2 inches of snow, I was totally denying science when I told my friends that we got 2 inches of snow.

There are a number of youtubes of dogs shoveling snow. I am going to have to get one of them.

Lots of drifting snow just south of Castle Rock. Got around 19” with drifts up to 4ft. Skijoring with the wife and the ponies is on for tomorrow!

Let it be noted in the records I did make it to the coffee shop at the end of the street. They were open!

Winter Park was a bunch of fun, 8 inches when we got there and another 4-6 inches fell before we left at 12:30pm. 1st few runs were good, even if too many of the front range people made it up the hill.

33 inches in our part of Conifer/Aspen Park. Impressive, but still nowhere near the 72 inches from 2003.

Only a couple of inches in Durango. It's already melted off. Beautiful day today. Went up from Molas pass into the alpine. Left too late to get Grand Turk but it was still a great day.
