I'm slow and fat. Unfortunately, those are my good qualities.

Guess that my thoughts about getting some easy late-season "snowflakes" by Friday are delusional.

Blizzard warning now for the Ft. Collins/Greeley/Boulder/Denver area. It is really dumping and the winds are gusting up to 45 mph at the big airport (DIA).

Here in Loveland it's still coming down steadily. Last night about 9 pm I went out and shoveled about 3-4 inches of slush. Woke up this morning to at least a foot of heavy wet consolidated concrete. Got the snowblower out (24", 6.5 hp) and it could barely handle it. I've got at least 6-8" more to clear off now but it hasn't let up yet. Wind is blowing hard too. Lots of moisture in this one.

Thanks for the update, sounds like just what we need to hopefully avoid another drought early this year.

Wind has calmed somewhat (still pretty blustery) for the time being here in Arvada but the snow keeps falling. Had a hard time even getting a fire lit in my fireplace because the wind was blowing so hard that the fire just kept going out. Definitely have at least a foot here, maybe more. Shoveled the driveway around 10am and I'd say there's a solid 4-5 inches covering it already. Gonna have to get back out there soon! Already got a snow day called for tomorrow so now I can just enjoy it

15" in Castle Rock as of 2pm this afternoon. Hard to measure in many areas due to the strong winds. Classic blizzard conditions.
