Many of you likely awoke to considerably more snow than expected! Most schools and public offerings are shut down, and there is currently a snow plow upside down in Boulder Creek. Don’t worry, the driver is doing fine. Snow totals thus far are in the 7-10″ range over then entire Denver Metro area. We measured 8.5″ at BoulderCAST around 7:00am, which was equal to the official measurement taken by the National Weather Service at 8:30am. By the time the snow wraps up this afternoon, we are likely to exceed 10 inches. Let us know in the comments below how much snow is in your neighborhood!

It wasn’t until late last night that it became clear Boulder and the entire Denver area may be in for our first significant snow of the year. There are a lot of reasons for this, including a little good fortune. We will discuss this in a post later today or tomorrow (found here). Stay tuned and drive safe (if you must!).
