Roads are icy in spots that saw accumulating snow yesterday. Allow yourself plenty of extra time this morning and dress warmly, as wind chills are in the single digits and teens for many. A second disturbance will bring another round of snow showers to the Front Range this afternoon and early evening. While not as heavy as yesterday, some additional light accumulations over the higher terrain will be possible, including Teller and Northern El Paso Counties. Highs in the 30s and 40s will feel colder when factoring a blustery northwest wind. Click on the 'Weather' tab for more...

The recent flooding was devastating for many in the Pikes Peak region and throughout the state, including the homeless population.
The Springs Rescue Mission (SRM) is seeking help from the public in meeting the needs of the homeless people living in Colorado Springs.
“We know that recent rain and flooding have had an unwelcome impact on many in our community,” SRM President and CEO Rev. Joe Vazquez said in a statement released by the organization Wednesday. “That includes a good number of our homeless neighbors, who found themselves and what possessions they have completely waterlogged by the end of last week."
SRM is seeking the following donations for homeless residents impacted by flooding:
• 40-gallon trash bags
• Large/freezer size Ziploc bags
• Non-perishable food
• Drinking water
• New socks
• New underwear and long underwear
• Waterproof boots
• Rain ponchos
• Blankets and sleeping bags
• Hygiene items
“The donations we seek will restore dry clothing and personal care items to them, as well as offer them basic nourishment," Vazquez said. "We know our neighbors here will continue to help the less fortunate as they have in the past. We can’t thank them enough.”
Donations can be dropped off at the Mission Warehouse on 1 W. Las Vegas St. Monday-Friday from 9:30 a.m.-4 p.m. and Saturday morning from 9:30-11.
Springs Rescue Mission is also looking for volunteers to help process new donations and current inventory. Volunteers need to be at least middle school-aged. Volunteers will be asked to work two hour shifts anywhere from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 20; Monday, Sept.23; and Friday, Sept. 27. If you're interested, call 314-2371 to reserve a shift.
