Light snow/rain continue to develop along northern El Paso County, as well as wind picking up in this location. This trend will continue to extend to the south throughout the afternoon hours. Light snow accumulations and poor visibility will be possible for a time this afternoon and evening north of Colorado Springs and south/southwest of Pueblo. Blowing dust will be mostly likely on the Eastern Plains, where a Blowing Dust Advisory is in effect. Bottom-line, your Tuesday will feel (and look) a lot different than the past two days. Be prepared...
Don Ortega walked into City Hall with an unloaded shotgun. When he got inside, he asked if he could check his weapon and volunteered to disassemble it. He then proceeded to Council Chambers and sat down with the gun next to him.
Three squad cars and a number of officers showed up at City Hall after hearing that a man was walking through the area with a gun. They didn't do anything though, because what Ortega did is not illegal.
Ortega says he carries the gun for personal protection.
