I am ready for the snow to stop. This doesn't help in getting ready for Moab.

which day? Sunny and clear doesn't make that look likely today, but then again it is Colorado. I agree that this is getting old.

Rain starting tonight turning to snow overnight for a messy commute tommorow and clearing by late Friday.

Thats what 9news said a while ago. But it says 6-12 inches

forecast calls for the fun to start at 2ish turning to snow by 4ish. 6-7" by morning commute and an additional 6-7" tomorrow. 50+'s on Saturday! Gotta love Colorado! I just put my Turfbuilder down....let it snow! :thumb: :cool: :D

It will take a lot of snow to stack anything more than wet slop on the warm streets!

It will actually help me, I gotta tear my tcase apart. The dadgum stupid mechanic did a piss-poor job of sealing it last time, and put too much gear oil in it to boot!
In all fairness, I had some of the Redline Shockproof stuff in there, which doesn't completely drain unless that sucker is HOT. Leading to about 3/4 qt. too much total on the refill.
But I'm about to fire the guy if he doesn't make it right.

Good thing the leaves have not fully "bloomed?", at least in my hood. The snow will be heavy

Dang and double dang! I need about a 6' longer garage and then I wouldn't care...Gets damn cold trying to work in the garage with the door up :(

Saturday isn't suppose to be too bad and Sunday even better so fingers are crossed. Bummer for the little ones though as soccer and rain/snow don't mix too well. Last couple games have been canceled as I imagine this Saturday's games will be.

Here it comes. Started at my office at 1:40 (Broomfield). I better run out and stock up on bottled water and toilet paper!

I think Tim would appreciate it this time if you went to the store to get your supplies. He had to use old newspapers in the bathroom last time:D

I wondered who paper mached my toilet bowl shut.

Now it's stopped, I don't know what to do. I guess after work I'll go to the Super Walmart and buy a bunch of supplies, but on the way I'll drive with my hazard flashers on, and make sure not to exceed 20mph. Then after it snows, I'll remember that 4wheel drive makes me invincible, and I'll drive around at 70mph and sue the city for not plowing fast enough when I broadside my neighbor's house. Or something like that.

Now guys come on, I am as sickof the snow as the next guy but we are in the snowiest time of the year. I for one would love to work with the garage door open but...........the heater will have to do.

It started to snow/sleet around 11:30 here at LockHeed, I am at the Waterton plant and driving in from lunch you could see the cloud move right down the valley. It was a pretty awesome site, waited a little longer and Roxborough disappeared just like that.

Guess I better put a few more logs on the fire.

Vail is expecting a whoping 2" of snow. Looks like I will be working on my truck instead of skiing. What gives?

Thats where I'm at! The plow is not on the truck and do I have any bets whether it will have to be mounted on the truck at all the next two days?

Put the plow on, UB. That way it's sure to not snow.

We should make a snow spread. Buy in would be a buck. anyone game? Winner would collect in Moab.

If I take my truck back home where I can't work on it then it'll warm up :rolleyes:

Anyone else noticed that it's been cooler all this week and this *happens* to be the week after I get it running again but still have bugs to work out? Oh and need I mention the four cold days and nights that *happened* to coincide with me having the opportunity to make it home and get it put back together? :rolleyes:

Everything is out to get me :(

Looks like most of the bad stuff may miss us in the Springs. Local news says the worst is staying south...we'll still catch some, just not as bad as expected. We do have a couple of inches here in Woodland left over from yesterday that is freezing up nicely for the wife's morning commute.

x2. We actually had a few inches accumulated when I got home yesterday afternoon.

Not a thing this morning though. I swear most people must have elected to stay home for the storm today, cause there was no one on the roads.

I didn't really want the snow, but at the same time I was disappointed:rant: we didn't get it.

I want to be a weatherman, it is the only job in the world where you can be wrong everyday of your career and still keep you job...

glad it missed us, hoping it didn't miss the watershed.

I found it funny that most stations kept stating that although this storm missed us the next one might not and supposedly it is expected to be worse...

Sort of the don't be mad that we got it wrong, be happy spiel with forewarning of something worse to come :)

But, for those of use that have lived in Colorado for any length of time this is just normal...

How would you like to be one of the passengers that had his or her flight canceled yesterday. "We are being pro-active this time so we don't have angry passengers like we did during the last storm"

I would be so mad if iIwas on one of those flights, canceled for nothing and your trip ruined.
