You must be in the Fort Collins area. It was a fun drive this am between Niwot and Loveland for sure. This weather will teach me to evaluate when I switch out my snow tires/wheels on my DD. Generally Tax day is not a bad time frame to make the change out...

We woke up to a couple of inches of fresh snow this morning too. Spring hasn't quite made it to Winnipeg yet. I'm hoping to plate up the car early May, but it's not looking good at this point.

Still coming down pretty hard west of I-25, but it is getting wetter and heavier. Should make for a nice and icy drive tomorrow once things freeze up tonight.

That would be hard to take. Wifey and I went for a four-hour cruise yesterday. Had the top down. Got up to 78 degrees at one point.

Hang in there guys, summer will be here before you know it.

Meh, it'll be melted and 70 degrees in a week. I don't feel bad for you.

Here in Seattle, we're still months from consistent 70 degrees.

I miss Ft Collins...

Yeah I know. Boxster was autocrossing at Front Range Airport on Sunday and then a whiteout on Monday. More expected this Tuesday here in the Boulder/Longmont area.
...but as typical, the roads should all be clear by the weekend.
Good to see other Colo'ers in the forum.

Upper 80's today great top down day!

Oh, and I can say that since I am originally from Wisconsin. Very happy that there is no snow here in APRIL!

yep we are at about 1-2" per hour still! and then more is enroute later this week...

after living in PDX(less rain, but less sunshine compared to Seattle) I will take snow every april for sunshine!!!

We might need to get a CO meet and greet, and then slay some of those mountain passes!
