Just wondering how much snow everyone is getting? I am guessing 18" so far maybe more in Aurora?

The moisture content is a god send really! But I would of preferred it come in the form of rain.

About 10" in my backyard in Broomfield.

I noticed that Eldora got 12" versus Winter Park's 7" and many other ski areas are even less...

None here in western colorado. We got a little rain, but not much. Snow in the mountains is what counts anyway.

These plains blizzards actually help out Bonny. The Republican drainage is mostly dependent on rainfall. A couple of feet of wet snow can't hurt?

I just got done shoveling and I am getting to old for this #### There is alot of moisture in this snow!

I only made it halfway down my driveway and gave up. I bet we have a foot.

I was in Canon CIty Saturday and left Sunday afternoon and they didnt get any snow and barily any wind. I went to Pueblo Sunday for the rest of the day no snow down there either but really really windy. Around 9:30 pm I arrived home in Colorado SPrings and a snow drift on the front of my house covered my deck and part of my door had to use the side door. But the roads werent as bad as the news made them sound. even the interstate was closed, had to be from a wreck cause I dont see why from what I hit driving.

Here in the Springs I did get my whole driveway done but skipped the sidewalks and the walk to the front door. The whole time I was thinking "When did this start getting hard". My back was killing me after afterwards ::) . I did leave the shovel against the garage door hoping one of the neighbor kids gets ambitious....yea right, one can dream though!

I measured the depth this morning when I got up 20", but i shoveled everytime it got 6 inches deep on my driveway and I had to shovel 4 times. The kicker is that it was melting on the bottom and being as heavy as it was it was compacting the lower layers. So I would guess at least 24". Oh, BTW i live near Ken Caryl and Kipling.

Probably a foot in Thornton. Hard to tell as it was melting from the bottom up. I've got some sore spots today. I noticed the Platte was sure running full.

I got off work this morning at 7am and when I woke up at 2pm all the snow on the sidewalks were melted already. So I'm not sore but I feel for ya all.
