A storm system will begin to impact Southern Colorado by late Friday morning. Mountain locations will simply see snow, but lower elevations will see rain eventually change to snow by later Friday afternoon. Locations that are higher in elevation will see the heaviest snow, due to them seeing cooler temperatures. So, Teller County, far northwest El Paso County, and the Wet & Sangre de Cristo Mountains will likely see several inches of wet snow. The major cities will see far less amounts and the storm will exit toward early Saturday morning.
Researchers think sweet basil can do a lot more than add zest to pesto and zing to tomatoes.
Colorado State University researchers found the herb can kill bacteria that cause fatal lung infections.
It also kills bacteria that causes many plant diseases, too.
Basil has a special antioxidant that kills pathogen cells that attack the lungs of cystic fibrosis patients and others with damaged immune systems.
The CSU team also found that the acid also is secreted from the roots when they're close to harmful bacteria.
The sweet basil compound could be used when cystic fibrosis patients become resistant or allergic to antibiotics.
