(Colorado) How much snow did you get?

Man we got 2-3ft here in Greeley! Could this storm contribute to the every 12-year record run-off I read on the boards awhile back? I'm excited for this coming season and its still 3-4 months away

I just saw a kid and a golden retriever playing in the snow outside my place and the dog was plowing through with only it's eyes and snout visible at times.

The kid was all "Wheeeeee!" and the dog was all "Fuck this."

We got over a foot in the springs with some decent drifts. I want to know what the upper ark valley got. Like Leadville and such, was this mostly just a front range event?

For the most part all snow fell east of the divide. By the time the air finally passed over the divide, all the moisture had already been sucked out, so most places west of divide probably only got a few inches. Great storm for front-range boaters though. This will really boost up the snow pack for the S. Platte Basin!

In Golden we got 2 1/2 to 3 -- see pic soon I hope. Pretty light, not a ton of moisture in it.

Although this is great, if we get a warm spring it could all be in the ground before it gets to the drainages.

What we need is about 4 of these monsters to come, a nice cold winter, and a late spring. Then we are talking.

Just looked at extended forecast. There is another major system on the western seaboard right now, and two behind it.

I call to the snow gods! Release your pent up furry on us!
