Snow round-up


Downtown Colorado Springs got about six inches of snow yesterday afternoon and evening, though the roads are mainly clear. A look around the state's Webcams shows a light dusting in Summit County and Vail, but a fairly thick blanket on the eastern side of the divide in Loveland. Monarch picked up a few inches. Pikes Peak's Webcam is still obscured by snow. The big winner locally seems to be Woodland Park, which looks like it picked up about eight inches. With temps in the 50s and 60s, this will all soon melt, but an ambitious person might be able to get a good cross country ski in at Rampart Reservoir today.

I do spotter reports for the Nat. Weather Svc and at 9pm last night called in a storm total of 11" for 1/2 mile NW of WP. Funny how a storm total can vary so much from valley to valley or from one side of our small little town to the other. Gotta love those microclimates.
