    Anybody else here live in or near Colorado? If so then you probably know about the snow DUMP we just got. I thought for sure Hell had frozen over, but apparently this is quite normal here....

    There were drifts 6+ feet high ALL over, and cars are completely under snow. The interstate was literally CLOSED, and remains closed as I type this. There were 12 random people who stayed overnight at a local 7-11 with the employees there because they literally couldn't drive anymore. As far as I know they are still there.

    The mayor where I live declared it a disaster area here, which means that all malls and major shopping outlets were all forced to stay closed today.

    This is my first winter in Colorado.... GOOD TIMES! :-o

    Bunny_roses what? no pink?

    oh man! what a rough winter for you guys!

    I guess that means all those people who hadn't finished their christmas shopping are really bummed. hehe

    on a side note I used to live in Alaska as a kid and I know exactly what you are going through.

    You got lots of snow out there. Reports are as much as 3 feet in some places.

    We enjoyed a few more feet just last night and most of the day today.

    Good times... :shocked:

    Man, I want some of that snow. I miss the winters where we get dumped on day after day after day.

    In fact, it's only snowed twice this year. All of December the temps have been 40s and 50s, which is insane for this area. Normally our lake is frozen over by now.

    It snowed here too but hardly worth mentioning. Probably around 4 inches or so.
