DENVER (AP) -- Northern Colorado is getting the brunt of a winter storm that has knocked out power to at least 62,000 homes and businesses along the Front Range.

The area from Boulder north to Larimer County has gotten most of the snowfall in the eastern half of the state. There's about a foot of snow in the Greeley area.

All the snow has caused power outages by snapping tree limbs and power lines.

The state's largest utility, Xcel Energy, said about 62,000 of its customers are without power. It wasn't immediately clear how many people who get their power elsewhere were also without electricity.

Xcel has brought in crews from Grand Junction and Texas to help with repairs.

Power outages have shut down the University of Northern Colorado in Greeley.

    I'm in Englewood and there is about 3 inches in the grass and the roads are clear because they aren't cold enough, and schools are open. What a waste, the weather forecasters are always wrong. Where's the 8-15" of snow blizzard like conditions? This is a non-event and everyone's day continues as usual. I wanted to bake cookies today.

    Colorado Springs is always a Bridesmaid when it comes to receiving any decent snowfall amounts.
