I like this site for watching power outages and seeing how close to home they get. Read somewhere they're like a domino effect once they get going because the drain it puts on other stations. You should do a post sometime on some of everyone's favorite sites for info.

Not so bad, I am hoping the bad stuff is behind us! February and early March was full of below zero days, but finally a few days ago, we got above 30 degrees, and the nights were not below zero. We had a couple inches this morning, but it stayed warm, and the next four days are supposed to be in the 40's. The snow here was crotch deep, but is now only knee deep!!! V6sRZf4

If society fell apart, we - the people would build a new one. Most people are good at their core, and when we see things that are wrong we work to fix them together. Make friends with your neighbors, get involved with your community - because we will rebuild our lives, our communities, from horrible circumstances we always will.

What a messy day here north of Denver. My area: 50 mph wind gusts, tree branches down, a foot of snow against the front door, at times couldn't see houses across the street, anywhere from 6 to 12" inches of snow fell, no way to measure because of the blizzard. Thousands upon thousands were stranded on the roads = national guard and school buses were out getting people to shelters. Police in my town were towing stuck and abandoned vehicles to three locations, no charge, just to get the vehicles off the street.

Yesterday they announced schools were closed for most the the Denver metro area when the temps were 61 F. Today, they announced no schools tomorrow because of power outages and/or tree damage to buildings, and/or some snow still falling and winds will whipping but no longer high winds.

DIA closed to all plane traffic, this hasn't happened since 2006. My husband works out there at UPS, which cancelled all personnel from going in until at least 6 am tomorrow.

One state trooper was killed, when a car slid into him when he was out helping another person whose vehicle had slid off the road and was stuck.

Broke 2 records today: DIA had highest wind gust of 80 mph and eastern Colorado near Kansas state line had lowest pressure ever recorded for Colorado. This storm really is a monster.

Many many trees were blown over, damaging homes, businesses and cars. Shingles blown off homes, one homeowner had just replaced his roof two months ago because of hail damage and now he has to have it replaced again, along with his windshield on his truck that was replaced at the same time before, because his neighbors tree was blown over and one of the branches took out his window.

Here is a pic of my car during a lull in the storm. I was standing in the garage, that isn't a window as it looks. You can't see out of any of our windows. It rained hard before the temps fell which coated all the windows because of the whipping winds, The the snow stuck to them and now are frozen.

Thunderstorms: 95%

A damaging p.m. thunderstorm; storms can bring flooding, hail, damaging winds and even a tornado

It's like the 4 horsemen's passing through tomorrow night.  Chuckle

Thanks for the update! All the snow and rain we've had this year is going to cause the river basins to overflow this spring. We may have a serious flooding problem soon.

I dunno if a 95% chance is an "if" but, "if"...I have a basement...that's about the extent of my plan. That and hit the liquor store in the morning.
