Moderate snow continues to fall for some areas of northern El Paso and Teller Counties, accumulating in the grass and yards. Meanwhile, in the plains and along the southern I-25 stretch, light rain/snow mix continues. Take it slow on the roadways - due to VERY strong winds, we are seeing blowing dirt and snow (depending on the region), which is tremendously reducing visibility.

Dr. Warren Kortz
DENVER (AP) -- The Colorado medical board has accused a surgeon of unprofessional conduct after a series of botched procedures with Porter Adventist Hospital's robotic surgery arm left some patients with severe injuries.
The state alleges that from 2008 to 2010, Dr. Warren Kortz cut and tore blood vessels, left sponges and instruments inside patients and injured patients because of improper positioning. The board says he also subjected some patients to overly long surgeries, and had to abort kidney donations because of mistakes.
According to the Denver Post (http://tinyurl.com/d3frafs ), Lisanne Leasure, an attorney for Kortz in a negligence suit over one of the kidney patients, said in a statement that Kortz's care was reasonable and appropriate.
