Default Colorado Blizzard

I am sure that some of you in warmer and lower elevation climes will get a real kick out of this. I am at 8,000 feet just west of Denver in Evergreen. Look at the depth of snow above the rub rail vs the freeboard of my 35' Cigarette! This is as of 5:00PM today, 3-18-03, and the forecast is for this much more by this time tomorrow. It started snowing at this time yesterday. If you are skiing Colorado this week, you had better already be here! Bob.

WOW,

I called one of my vendors about 3 eastern today "Gates Rubber" in Denver and got a voice mail"Closed due to Weather".

This explains it.

Hang in there!

The scary part would have been if anyone answered the phone! This is just brutal.

It's just like Colorado weather, we had a high in the mid 70s (I had the air on...) on Saturday. Should be back up to 50 by this Saturday. I hope we can be boating by April.........

One of my trucks just said the roads were shut down 70 miles east of Denver. His delivery in Aurora is closed till friday. I guess they'll need some time to dig themselves out!
