Winter Storm

By  | 

Shirley Harmon planned to spend most of today in the comfort of her southern Colorado home while her husband used his tractor to dig through several feet of heavy, wet snow.

The snow came to her home at Lake Isabel as a storm passed over the weekend.

The storm system swept out of Colorado today after closing schools, knocking out power and snarling morning commutes in Denver and other parts of the Front Range. Icy road conditions may have contributed to an ambulance rollover near Erie that sent six people to area hospitals.

Roads throughout the state were wet or snow and ice covered, though the Colorado Department of Transportation reported few closures. Some rural roads were treacherous or impassable.

Snowfall totals include 32 inches in Rye, in Pueblo County, 22 inches in Walsenburg and 17 inches at Colorado City.
