Snow flurries and drizzle fell across northeastern Colorado Monday, as crews continued efforts to rescue some mountain-area residents still trapped by last week's blizzard.

A home in Evergreen collapsed Monday because of the weight of the snow.

Forecasters say this storm is unlikely to produce much measurable precipitation -- but a system headed into the state later in the week may deliver more snow.

Most of Colorado returned to normal activity after a weekend of sunshine began melting banks of snow left from the storm that
dropped 31.8 inches in Denver -- the heaviest snowfall since 1913.

In Jefferson County west of Denver -- crews used front-end loaders to punch one-lane paths through blocked roads in higher elevations. Hundreds of residents there remain stranded in their homes.
