Christmas 2006 Colorado SnowStorm
Here are a some snapshots from of a major Colorado Snowstorm
that hit on December 20th, 2006. At 9:00PM, I plunged a yardstick
into the front yard and measured 22" of fluffy white stuff that
had fallen that single day ... but as can be seen in the picture
from my office window,
drifts were much higher. There was even a little bit more overnight
as Dirk-n-Kyle did an "official"
measurement of 25" the
next morning. It actually shut down the Denver airport for 45 hours - my wife got stranded in Las Vegas for a couple of days.
Live coverage was provided by the
lights webcam which was used to generate some time-lapse videos
of the blizzard, and subsequent shoveling and sledding - see 'em all on the
christmas videos page.
And then there was a third blizzard in as many weeks - see even more
pictures from that one.

Santa, Homer, and Elmo stand up against the Colorado Snow Storm!
Even the Hulk hangs in there ...
... But he isn't too happy about the Snow Storm
But Frosty says let it snow, let it snow, let it snow
Despite being half-buried, the other Frosty also likes the snow

Howling Winds sent Frosty off his plywood base
But he was back up later that night
