Better Weather Friday...

As the storm continues to exit the area, conditions will continue to improve. Some lingering snow and blowing snow will exist over north and northeast El Paso County, but the main storm impacts are headed east. Clearing will also take place for some of us tonight, and that means a very cold start to the day on Friday. Roads will be slick and the commute will be slow. However, the bulk of the day should be much better than the past two days.

The nicer day Friday paves the way for a great weekend. Enjoy the nice weather while it lasts...

    my wife and i are both retired. i've lived here for 30 plus years and love it here. especially when it snows. we have our hot choclate and rolls and stay warm. we watch tv and listen to the reports about all the IDIOTS that don't know how to drive n bad weather. you would think that these people would know bEtter but i reckon not. and more importantly people don't know where the lite switch is. it really helps to see the other vehicles around you. o well,,,i hope everyone has a nice day,,,,,,,,,ummmmmmmmmm,,i think i'll go have a nap now. GOOD DAY TO YA

    WOW: Yes i am well aware that the normal flu has taken the lives of many, but the swine flu is moving rapidly and taking lives more quickly. and with both flu's most victims had underlying health problems, but why chance your child going to school and possibly contracting "any" flu when you don't have to! When im sick i don't go to work! i take into consideration everyone else who would have to be around my sniffling, sneezing and couching all day, and in the end their health isn't worth contaminating! share your toys, not your germs! i can see from another perspective of yes, put all the sick ones together with the healthy so they can all get it and get over it, but a child's immune system isn't that strong and there is no need to risk it...swine flu or seasonal flu! all who are sick i hope you get to feeling better, and for those who aren't hope you keep healthy and don't catch whats going around!

    With common sense and taking enough time to get places; commuting shouldn't be an issue. Just play it safe. If you don't have to go out then don't! This is the time of year when the flu is going around, and yes people do die from the reg. flu and you shouldn't send your children to school if they are sick, but with the new flu out there it is better to be safe than sorry. If your child is healthy and hasn't been sick then keep them home if the sick kiddos are attending...no need to come in contact with this stuff if you don't have to! no need to bash people who think that its wise to send their healthy kids to school with the ill ones! "procreate" all you want! Native do you have children? are you itching to get them off your hands and back in school so you can shirk your parental responsibilities? really hope not! take precaution and prevent the worst! hope everyone enjoys this normal winter weather! it is CO after all!

    I'm not a native of Colorado, but I was raised in the midwest where snow and bad weather is no stranger. I learned how to drive in this weather, but just because I know how to drive in it and I have an AWD vehicle does not mean I can go 80 mph down the road, especially with ice under the snow. Honestly, this is really nothing compared to some of the winters that Germany gets. I can remember having to put cardboard on my windshield so I didn't have to wait two hours in the morning to thaw out 4 inches of ice on my windshield and driving with two of my wheels off of the road just to keep traction because the road was covered with 6 to 8 inches of snow. This is an itty bitty storm. Enjoy it. And Colorado does have more than two seasons, this is beautiful scenery here, which is why I choose to stay here. If you don't like the weather, then leave. Leaves more scenery and more room for the rest of us.

    Wow. I'm by far not a Colorado Native. I moved here a year ago, during a supposedly mild winter. You people sound so moronic. To Native: The regular flu has killed more annually than the swine flu. So I guess every parent who lets their kid get the flu is a horrible parent right. I mean it only kills 30,000 annually. To Supercharged: Those 440 horses, are going to make you lose control easier than a non 4WD. You're brakes also don't work any better than a 2WD vehicle. Also, the caps lock button is to your left above Shift and below Tab. All caps doesn't make you special. If I go out today, I will drive carefully. I will drive a reasonable speed. I also know that just because it isn't icy say on S. Academy doesn't mean its not icy on Briargate. Common sense people...really.

    Yes, Colorado does have 4 seasons. Winter, Spring, Fall, and Winter. But they come in no particular order, and usually more than season one each day :-) Welcome to Colorado, Snow Happens...10 months of the year. [July and August it's usually ok to put your scraper away]

    OK fine SUPERCHARGED...have at. But I wonder...will you pay for that tree you slid into? By the amount of intelligence you're showing, I would have thought you'd buy a Ford. Kidding, you Ford owners (well, kinda). It doesn't matter how much snow a "stom" drops (sheesh, get spellcheck), ice underneath means you'll be sliding. But then, I suppose you're one who thinks speed limits are for the weak. Drive careful, people!

    your meterologists couldn't predict the weather if thier life depended on it.

    Now as for sending your children to school! if you think that the conditions are fine then thats your judgement, but what is wrong with enjoying this weather...calling off work and spending the day with your family outside??? comparing the snow to the H1N1 or Swine Flu is a bit much. Why would you want to chance your childs health and send them to school where they could catch that?? its not like the chicken pox or regular flu!!! people have died from it! honestly what kind of parent would want to risk their childs health like that??? Some people need to take an IQ test before they are allowed to procreate! what is the matter with you?
