Gina says they had over 18" of snow by 9 pm last night and probably had a grand total of 24" of the stuff. We didn't get as much in town as they did out where she lives, but still, we got snow.

Apparently it's often cold and snowy or rainy on Halloween here.
Here's the forecast (I'm in Douglas County):
Updated: SNOW... HEAVY AT TIMES OVERNIGHT WITH AREAS OF BLOWING SNOW WILL PRODUCE HAZARDOUS DRIVING CONDITIONS IN THE FRONT RANGE FOOTHILLS GENERALLY SOUTH OF THE I-70 CORRIDOR AND OVER THE PALMER DIVIDE... INCLUDING EASTERN DOUGLAS AND WESTERN ELBERT COUNTIES. SNOW ACCUMULATIONS BY NOON MONDAY WILL RANGE FROM 5 TO 10 INCHES... WITH LOCALLY UP TO A FOOT UP ALONG THE FOOTHILLS. NORTH WINDS OF 20 TO 30 MPH WITH GUSTS TO 40 MPH LATE TONIGHT AND MONDAY MORNING WILL PRODUCE AREAS OF BLOWING AND DRIFTING SNOW MAINLY EAST OF I-25.
There's about an inch or a little more out there now.
"This is the eighth straight day with significant precipitation." (from 9news)
I don't remember this long of a streak of non-sunny days since I've been here. Granted, it's only 8 years, but I talked to someone who's been here for 22 years and she said she hadn't seen anything like this either.
Happily it looks like blue skies today.
The rain has been nice. The thunderstorms fantastic (except for the ones that happen during sleeping hours and cause the dog to whine). But sunshine is Good (tm).
