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.

State law prohibits the sale of alcohol on Sundays, but that could change under a new bill in the state Legislature.
Senate bill 77 would allow local governments to decide whether to allow stores to sell alcohol on Sundays from noon until 8 p.m.
Among the bill's supporters is Max Snyder, who owns a general store and restaurant in Granite. He says people come into his store on Sundays frequently, especially campers and fishermen who really want a beer on the weekend.
Senator Jennifer Veiga, a Democrat from Denver, says most people are responding well to her bill.
But a lobbyist for the Colorado Licensed Beverage Association says most store owners oppose Sunday sales.
And Senator Bob Hagedorn, a Democrat from Aurora, says the bill sends the wrong message for a state grappling with binge drinking on college campuses.
