    Looks like a classic upslope for me. Plowed once this AM going out again now looks like well over a foot more like 14 to 15 inches so far. It is expected to increase and keep dumping for another 18 to 24 hours. Total could hit 36" for this storm Sandbrew

    Not a problem. We are at 2 feet on the level and 4 feet for wind blown drifts. In for lunch then back out to get gas. Put 34 miles on the jeep and burned over a 1/2 tank. Chained up on all 4 tires now just to go on the county roads. I'm guessing the county grader is done in my area for the day and it's still dumping.

    we are dun getting pounded.

    I'm in Longmont, 5000 feet elavation
    We get a lot less snow than most of the rest of denver metro. (which is both good and bad)
    There's an easy 8-10" on the ground and it's still coming.
    And mind you, it's been right at freezing, so if you did a parking lot, it didn't rebuild real fast, it kept melting. (it will be icy as hell tomorrow morning though)

    Lot of snow
    Way to start the season though, making some money.

    We did some lots 2 and 3 times and yet next door, the lot never got touched all day.
    strange.

    and here I am lying on my couch trying to remember how it feels like after plowing for 36 hours straight. It looks like it is going to be a long winter

    Longmont already got 8-10"!? I lived in Boulder for a few years and I don't remember ever getting snow this early. I lived in Steamboat for a few years before Boulder and I always thought Colorado "slacked" on parking lot maintenance. I thought it was funny because people are out plowing an inch around here and life stops at two inches, but Coloradans went on with the daily routine with more than double the snow. I miss it out there.

    There was always snow on the ground at halloween.
    I went as an eskimo as a kid pretty much every year, same as everyone else.

    I remember early september snows (branch breakers)

    Was a pretty good storm for us too, Worked 15 hours today and 6 last night, taking care of our commercial clients in the denver tech center. We saw around 15-20" with drifts 3 feet or better. Awesome start to the season :nod:
