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 christmas 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 snow storm pictures from that one.
