    Man still trying to recoup from being snowed in Denver last week. I-25 and I-70 where closed for 3 freakin days and couldn't get out! I have never seen so much snow in my life. I feel for you brother.

    I just have a ball at work locking the diffs and making those semi trucks do power slides. We can't even fork trucks into the shop, the back of the shop is a solid 2" thick ice slab!

    Mainly trying to keep from getting hit by other drivers. :D

    We have some snooty neighbors that like to look down their nose at the old Chevy. I like to wave at them when I cruise through the snow laden street they are stuck in. Hidey Ho neighbor. :haha:

    Our biggest issues up here were a 48 hour fuel and food shortage. It got pretty ugly at the Conoco. We still have only one lane down our street and snow over ice ruts deep enough to jam your head through the roof. Main roads are clear.

    We have had a crapload of accidents. Yesterday some girl driving too fast for conditions slid sideways down hwy 287 directly into the nose of an oncoming pick-up. On the Boulder turnpike we had a 20-25 car pile-up, again people driving too fast. What looks like snow is just ice with a frosting. Temps are down as well so not much melting.

    They are forecasting another round soon. :D

    Between Fort Collins and Cheyenne during storm #1...

    Yet another reason I'm thankful for every day that I don't live in Denver... I'd be completely crazy by now if I had to deal with all that snow... I'm sick of the snow we got here in Cheyenne... Pretty bad, but not Denver bad...

    Man, the great white north, and south seem to have decided to switch sides for a winter or something... We've got next to no snow left here, and have been enjoying above freezing temps for a while now, while you poor suckers to the south are getting snow by the foot, and cold temps, LOL

    I'm hoping that karma comes around to bite us all in the butt, and give you guys a break... I think the snow is great fun to drive in, esspecially when you can barely see the end of your hood, and the accumulation is already about 2 feet :D
