Some Colorado residents had to deal with wet and slushy conditions all day on Saturday while everyone else spent the day shoveling.

"It's wet," said Jason Schmitt who lives in Woodland Park.

"It's heavy," said Mike Williams who also lives in Woodland Park.

Residents of Woodland Park were buried with a new blanket of snow and had to dig themselves out all over again. "I come out like two or three times a day so I don't have to shovel entirely 14-inches of snow," said Williams.

Williams says he is tired and was hoping the sun would come out and start doing some of the work for him. "It's getting hard to drive in," said Williams.

It's why Jason Schmitt had to walk to work on Saturday. "It'll take probably about 20 to 30 minutes in this weather," said Schmitt.

It's about 2-miles away and Schmitt said he is not a happy camper. His street is still not plowed. "I contemplated writing a letter to the city, absolutely," said Schmitt.

But Schmitt wasn't the only one who had a rough day thanks to all the building snow. "They said the whole grid is pretty much out," said Jeremy Vergenz who lost his power and heat.

The mounting snow, which caused many trees to droop, snapped one tree right onto a power line. "Our power flickered once or twice," said John Vergenz who lives in Woodland Park, but did not lose power.

"Since it's about just as cold inside, we just figured we'd go outside," Jeremy Vergenz. So, they decided to make lemonade out of lemons and spent part of their day sledding.
