They'd have to have gotten an average of 6" snow-water equivalent for that to be accurate. Even though we drove through snow all the way from Avon to Denver last night, I don't think quite that much came down. For comparison, you can see the big blizzard that we had in March 2003 (where the red line goes vertical in mid-march) which dumped 3-6 feet of snow up in the foothills. There are a lot of farmers and water suppliers out east that'd love to see that if it were real.
Who knows, though? Maybe, just maybe...
Nothing in the world is more yielding and gentle than water. Yet it has no equal for conquering the resistant and tough. The flexible can overcome the unbending; the soft can overcome the hard. - Lao Tse
