    CURRENT ALERTS--
    A WINTER STORM WARNING is in effect for the front range, foothills, and mountains east of the Continental Divide starting Tuesday night through Wednesday. 6 to 12 inches of snow will be possible by Wednesday afternoon. A WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY is in effect for Elbert County above 6,000 feet. A rain/snow mix is also possible in the metro area on Wednesday morning. Check the Weather Alerts page for the latest weather watches and warnings.

    Dang....haven't even serviced the plows yet.

    My parking garages in the foothills might get some accumulation outta this.

    Funny thing is...I just got done cutting a bunch of grass, and havent even blow out one irrigation system as of yet.

    Same thing with me. I still have a full blown landscape install to do as well as a few other odds and ends. Local weather says Monument Hill is only supposed to get 1-3" so I might get lucky. I wonder if I can even pick up ice melt anywhere yet?

    NOAA says we will be back in the 70's on Sunday and will stay warm for at least a few days.

    I just checked the weather again and they are now saying 1-3" tonight and 3-7" tomorrow. I think the ground is still too warm to have much of anything stick though.

    I love Colorado! A foot of snow today and suntan tomorrow!

    That's right...your plow monument hill.

    You always get pounded.

    I'll bet you get accumulation.

    I love the weather here! They are saying about 1/2" for me but we are supposed to be in the mid to upper 60's on Tuesday.

    I know we will get hit by the end of the month but I still have some fences to put up and a shop to organize. Guess I better get going!

    Forecast is calling for snow. 2"-4" of the snow expected for the Denver metro area. Up to 10" is expected for the west and south areas of the front range. I think the 9news accumulation numbers are high. When I checked theweatherchannel.com and weatherunderground.com they are calling for just a couple inches. We are going the need the temp. to fall more because right now it is still in the low 40's. Anyway, LET IT SNOW!:drinkup::bluebounc:drinkup::bluebounc

    I think ground temps are a little high for all my accounts to hit...but my parking garages is a different story.

    Cold and Tired should get hit real good.

    NOAA is saying 3-5" for me tonight and 2-4" tomorrow. I think the ground is way too warm for anything more than about an inch of accumulation. I sure hope I'm wrong though.

    Check this out:

    It looks like a big Albuquerque low. Some of our biggest storms have come from systems like this.

    Boy that looks like a lot of moisture is coming our way. The ground may be warm but if it dumps in a short amount of time, we will be plowing. I remember a couple years ago in October. It was 70 out during the day and by midnight there was 7" on the ground. Anything can happen. I'm plowed up and ready to go. So you know what that means? No snow, just rain. Anyway, if it snows? Lets make some F#kn dough.payup

    oh man, we got hit!! We picked up about 6". I forgot how tiring plowing all day is.

    I do have a lot to learn with my new spreader though.
