    That's where the chain would come in handy. Hook and pull.

    Nope, no snow in Black Forest yet, but there is snow on Pikes Peak in the last week or so. Usually, we get our first one on or around Halloween.
    The snow fell on April 24, the pix were shot April 25th. Here is a blurb from NWS:

    Sixteen to 20 inches of snow was measured near...Moffat (Alamosa County)...Silver Cliff (Custer County)...Monument (El Paso County) and Florissant (Teller County). Also...snow drifts to around four feet were noted in northern El Paso County. Nearly two feet of snow covered Black Forest (El Paso County)...and Crestone (Saguache County)...and Rosita (Custer County). In El Paso County...over 200 people were stranded...including 60 students from Miami-Yoder schools who were on a bus. Thousands of people in eastern El Paso County were without power...some for several weeks. Hundreds of electric transmission lines were downed.
