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.
“I had a garage door right here I just bought,” Debbie Carneal said. She lives just outside of Yoder. You almost have to see her property with your own eyes to believe it.
Her 40 x 60 foot steel barn used stand near her home, but it lifted from the ground, and pieces were thrown all across the property, even a quarter mile from her house. “The sheep were running loose.”
As Carneal starts to assess the damage, another storm formed overhead. “I was shaken badly; it's a mess.” She estimates $20,000 in damage. Carneal is not sure yet if their insurance will cover that.
