Default Just what we need

DUST! Holy shit at the dust in the air as this front has rolled through. I'm just across I-70 from Floyd Hill and took the dog for a quick walk and I could barely even see Floyd Hill which is probably only about 2 miles as the crow flies.

Just when you think snow conditions couldn't get any shittier...

I may have jumped the gun on the dust. Not really hearing any other reports of dust, but sure looked like dust to me. Snowing in Summit/Eagle right now. Not another storm in sight on the 7-10 day. This may be a one storm March and it's not coming in favorable for Summit/Eagle.

Still, if it's 4" or more on the AM reports, I'm taking a sick day. Haven't had a decent day in over two weeks and not another good day in sight. Get it while the gettin's good.

Yeah, we got that wind from about 3-4pm or so. It's been snowing at Loveland for the last 2 hours per their webcams.

It just came a quick squall here.

The front just passed I do believe. It got really dark, windy, snowed hard for a few minutes with low hanging clouds and now pretty much clear.

It started snowing again and coming down hard. I could see that the top of the mtn looked to be getting snow the whole time we were at local joes chomping pizza.

It looks like shaving cream hitting the ground. If it's a significant amount by tomorrow I'm gonna ride for the first time in over 2 months.....
