That was us last week -- fortunately, we missed the "third shoe
dropping" in three weeks and got only a skiff of snow w/ on flurries
on/off for rest...didn't need any more here and north and west.
Hopefully, those east and south will not have the level of damage
sustained here -- many still w/o power since 12/29 and some may be
another two weeks yet... :(
I knew this would happen when I bought my snow thrower there in
I feel I am responsible for the warm weather in the east and predict a
similar one next year.
When my snow thrower is out of warranty in two years, we will have a
terrible winter ;(

Here in Denver where we've had over 4 feet of snow in the last several
weeks you can't find a snowblower. A brand new lowes opened up down
the street. They had in stock all kinds of lawnmowers, rototillers,
garden equipment. Not one snowblower.
Actually, Denver itself isn't "in" the mountains. but east at the
base...and consequently, is shielded from a lot of the heaviest snows
on the leeward side. This series of storms (particularly the first
two) have been somewhat unusual in the bulk of the moisture was brought
up from the south and southeast ahead of the cold fronts which then
precipitated the snow/ice events. That southerly flow of warm air
overriding the cold was the cause of so much ice/sleet/freezing rain on
the leading edge...
So much for the meterological discussion...the sun is finally shining
this AM altho it's 9F (and we're a warm spot SW KS)... :)
If you want to get really picky about it, Denver is in
a valley at the base of the mountains. The terrain is
higher to the east and south than it is in Denver. The
hills to the west are somewhat higher.
