Winter 2012 Arrives In Colorado
It was a cold day in Colorado today. A storm that has dumped more than a foot of snow in the Rocky Mountains was causing problems for travelers as it spread across the Plains. The main east-west route across Colorado, Interstate 70, was closed from east of Denver to the Kansas line because of poor visibility due to blowing snow. Smaller highways were also closed in eastern Colorado. Drivers in Iowa and Nebraska are being warned to be careful or stop driving altogether starting Wednesday evening as the Plains gets its first major winter storm of the season. Hopefully this clears up by the weekend.
