    I don't believe it and NWS is not saying anything, but...

    I Crapped in my pants when:

    "The mountains of Colorado could see 8 feet of snow by the end of this storm."

    What the heck? I hope about 1/8 of that is true.

    Still nothing on NWS, but weatherunderground is showing variable probabilities for snow for the next 6 days of anywhere between 20-60%. No accumulations though. Not that anyone cares but my zip is 80461 if you want to look.

    Reminds me of the East Coast "Super Storm" of '93 (maybe it was '92). I was in Vermont with some friends skiing & boarding that weekend. The weather Channel report just kept increasing & increasing & increasing all day. Started with 12"-18" predicted in the AM & by 9:00 PM the forecast was 5'-6' with drifts to 8' possible!! We video taped the TV screen with that report because we were sure nobody would believe it back home in NJ LOL. We watched the big window of our hotel room fill all the way up with snow & had a blast playing in it. We were actually able to climb to second floor rooves & jump off without getting injured because the snow was deep enough. They got all of the 6' in around 24 hours. We woke up around 9:00 AM thinking we were snowed in for days, but to our amazement the roads were down to pavement & the parking lot was cleared enough to drive on snow pack and it was bright & sunny. Our roads at home were still bad & we only got 18" from the storm. The only problem was we couldn't enjoy all the fresh powder because when the storm pulled out it brought in 40-60mph winds & they couldn't open the lifts :realmad:

    The Denver news is prediciting 12" - 24" tonight into tomorrow morning, and then about the same Tuesday night into Wed morning. The Weather Channel (on television, not the net) is only predicting 1" - 3". As much as we need the snow, I'm not getting my hopes up.

    Weatherbug, TWC and NWS all report flurries and no accumulation tonight. It's been coming down pretty steady for the past hour. With the proven accuracy of our weather forecasters, I'm heading to bed and get some sleep so I can get everybody plowed out for work in the morning.

    I should have clairified myself.
    Denver is the only local news I can get. They were predicting this for the mountains west of Denver, meaning the Utah line to the Continental Divide.

    Thanks for the burger and beer Howard. It looks like we got the contract on the job I was going to check out, so you might be seeing more of me. :rolleyes:

    Got 14" last night thru this morning, and it is still comming down hard. Looks like about 2 - 3 inches per hr. People around here are having a hard time with it. Saw two DOT trucks in the ditch on my way into the office this morning, and another one chaining up to try and pull them out. Could be an interesting day.
