I'm glad the ice never came.  My truck was covered with an inch of that shit all the way back from Missouri and I didn't want more added that night.

Part two, tonight through Sunday night. Anywhere from 3-18 inches (depending on which part of Colorado you reside) and Blizzard Warnings across the state.

I was unlucky enough to leave a late night at the school and drove right into a blizzard last November. Took me 2 and 1/2 hours to make a 50-minute trip. I could see about 10 feet in front of me.

Turns out that the total snow accumulation that night was only two inches, but the high winds caused a near-whiteout.

....still better than those God-forsaken winters in New Hampshire.

Looks like I got about 6 inches of snow covering a thin layer of ice.

I find from long-time locals that what I experienced here over the 5-day period is what is referred to as "An Albuquerque Low". For some reason, if a storm moves northeast or northwest from Albuquerque, Colorado gets dumped on.

I'm used to bitching and cursing "Alberta Clippers". Those bastards were responsible for five straight years of sub-zero weather, wind chills and 100+ inch snowfalls in a season in New Hampshire.

Denver cold is different than Albq cold.  Albq cold is hell and fucking gone from Portales cold.  Think of Portales as Lubbock.  A big snow is usually 3 inches and when that happens our world is thrown into a tailspin.

We got another foot last night/this morning. I was off today and went over to the grocery store this morning and there were maybe 3 other people besides the skeleton crew staff.

Honestly, your area could use the snow though, at least it will slowly melt into the ground, diminishing the drought conditions in your area

It's been between +2 and +4 for the last 4 or 5 days here during the day, down around -10 overnight. Very nice for this time of year.

We'll get one or two more big dumps of snow, probably in early April.

Winter here used to be from the last week of October (snow and cold) right through March and into April before it even thought about thawing out. Consecutive weeks of -35 to -40 were pretty normal every winter (one year we had, I shit you not, almost 6 weeks straight of those temps). Now if we get more than three days of it in a row once it's something.

Odd to watch such a transition in weather when you live in the same city your whole life.
