High of 67 yesterday, woke this morning to SNOW – not the 1-3 inches forecasted, but a whopping 10 inches!!  Wet heavy snow falling 2” per hour.  BLIZZARD WARNING: high winds, white-out conditions.  Good day to own a Jeep 🙂

Good day ⇨ Better day?  Receiving a text from your boss saying: SNOW day, work is closed.  That’s happened…well, never.  Even our mega airport, DIA (Denver Int’l Airport), closed – first time in 10 years.  WOW!

Don’t have to be a kid to appreciate a SNOW day 🙂

 

Changed into PJs & fried up a half dozen eggs – SNOW DAY protein breakfast!  Yum!

Later hiked thru knee-deep snow ‘round Hecla Lake, sharing off-leash quality time with my best bud Ro.

 

Day’s final tally – 20.3 inches.  FAAANNNTASTIC!

 

 

 

 

Record-smashing spring snowfall pounds Boulder

City sees 16.4 inches of snow — equal to the average snowfall for all of March

 

A monster snowstorm dumped a record-breaking 16.4 inches of snow on Boulder on Wednesday while crippling cities all along the Front Range and stranding would-be spring break travelers.

 

That Boulder snowfall, as reported by meteorologist Matt Kelsch, shatters the record for snowfall on March 23, which was 10.6 inches set in 2013.

 

In fact, Wednesday’s dump exactly equaled Boulder’s average March snowfall for the past 30 years, and comes on top of last week’s 15-inch snowfall.

 

Official totals:

 

Boulder: 16.4 inches

 

Longmont: 15.4 inches

 

Nederland: 23.5 inches

 

Louisville: 20.3 inches

 

Lafayette: 19 inches
