Snow Slams The Front Range

The front rage gets hit with their first blast of winter weather. Slick roads and power outages for nearly 100k customers in the Denver area.

I tell people back home all the time “I don’t live in the mountains.” “We really don’t get that much snow in Grand Junction.” I’m all about the drier climate and 300 days of sunshine we enjoy here in western part of Colorado.  Today, it was definitely different over on the front range. Last night into this morning about 5 inches of snow fell in the Denver metro area and up to 12 inches in the foothills.

According to Colorado Department of Transportation, the slick roads wreaked havoc on I-70 as both directions were closed because of several crashes. The worst stretch was between Genesee down to Morrison. The westbound lane reopened around 9:30 this morning. It wasn’t until 11 before the eastbound lane was open to traffic.


A hard freeze is forecasted for tonight. Temperatures will drop down to about 25 degrees! Ouch! The good news is that the weather looks better with sunshine and temperatures near 70 degrees by the end of the week. Good for them but I’m happy right in Grand Junction.
