    80 mile stretch of I-70 CLOSED!!!

    And they're not sure when it will be open.

    I've dreamt about this before :-) I'm over here on the Western SLope, and the highways are closed...

    Check it out. Empty highways.

    After this, we have to contend with avalanches... Then fast melt flooding.

    Ahhhh, Springtime in the Rockies. 30 to 40" along the front range.

    Next week, it's going to get up to the mid 70'S.

    As they say in most places, "If you don't like the weather, wait ten minutes, it will change."

    It's not so much a case of "You got what you paid for", as it is a matter of "You DIDN'T get what you DIDN'T pay for, and you're NOT going to get what you thought you were in the way of comfort". Borrowed from Heatboy.

    Bummer...

    Had I known, I'd have made other arrangements :-)

    Check out the Lear Jet hanging from the ceiling of the C concourse. It holds world records, and use to be owned by Bill Daniels. Although I've never met him, I did have the honor of working on his homes heating systems. He donated the home, called Cable Land, to the City and COunty of Denver, for the Official Mayors Residence. None of the last two mayors have bothered to live there...

    Hope you get home soon HR, but the forecast doesn't look so good until maybe late tonight or tomorrow.

    Bad way to spend the weekend. I'd come get you, but the highways are closed!

    Hi Mark,

    Fun Times! I'm stuck at home (at least) in Leadville. Wanted to go skiing but can't go north at this point. Forced to do spring cleaning.

    Good luck on your travels.

    We got a good 8" here in Denver and now it is raining turning it all to slop. The snow blower won't touch it, the snow shovel gets too heavy, but by Monday this will all be just a memory.

    thanks Noel

    You bailed me out once before getting to DIA. Thanks again for the offer, I'm back home in the rain that followed me.
