    ‘Major’ winter storm hits Colo., Wyo.

    Traffic accidents, flight cancellations and up to 18 inches of snow

    updated 1:17 p.m. CT, Wed., Oct . 28, 2009

    CHEYENNE, Wyo. - A major early season snowstorm on Wednesday caused flight cancellations at Denver's airport and made for ugly commutes in Colorado and Wyoming. Blizzard conditions and up to 18 inches of snow were forecast in some areas.

    The region's first heavy snow of autumn prompted officials to close schools in Wyoming and was blamed for dozens of accidents in the state and in neighboring Colorado.

    Up to 18 inches of snow was forecast in Denver and along the northern Colorado Front Range. As much as 4 feet was possible in the Colorado mountains. Cheyenne was expected to get at least 14 inches before the storm moves off Thursday afternoon.

      18 inches in Denver, thank god for Global Warming or it could have been more.
      It could be that the purpose of your life is only to serve as a warning to others.

                Two feet, here in Castle Rock, CO. Luckily it hit on my three days off. Wind has it up against the both front and back doors. Two days with no school for the kiddies. Lot's of snowblowing and shoveling. Thanks God it's only October!

                Three things I know for sure: (1) No bad deed goes unrewarded, (2) No good deed goes unpunished, and (3) It is entirely possible to push the most devoted, loyal and caring person beyond the point where they no longer give a 5h!t.

                  I have to admit I has been kind of nice working in the snow. We didn't get near as much as Keith and a few areas got almost nothing. But it was cold enough to keep alot of the criminals inside. I didn't have near the calls for service that I usually have. I was actually able to get some follow up done.

                    Luckily only a few inches here on the western slope, although it's definitely early for snow here. It's mostly melted off already, except on the cliffs.

                    Ah well, makes being in Phoenix next week look even better!
