    Well there is justice sometimes with the idiot drivers! On our way to Denver this morning, cars were passing us like there was no tomorrow. A few miles up the road, those same cars were off the road and facing the wrong way....hmmmmm wonder how that happened?? Learn to slow down - just because you have 4 wheel drive doesn't mean you can drive like a maniac!

    So, I remember plows and sand trucks "practicing" on a dry day just a few weeks back. Wasting money on days that don't need it yet here on a SNOWY day the roads were a mess! WHERE WERE THEY?

    Driving at 80 miles an hour in 80 degree Los Angeles weather is not the same as 20 degree icy Colorado weather. SLOW DOWN !!!!! You will get there . Whether you do get there in a cab because you totaled your vehicle OR in your vehicle is totally up to you. ( :

    Also love the "weather guessers" philosopy of the "sky is falling" for predicting the weather.

    People, you live in Colorado. It snows here. Get used to it. If I can make it to work in the Springs from Calhan on Hwy 24 you should be able to maneuver around town. The roads for mostly wet and only marginally icy as soon as I crossed over Powers on Platte. I don't get all these complaints. Learn how to drive our stay out of the way.

      While that may have been your experience, it wasn't for most. Most of us have no problem with snow, but ice and poorly maintained roads are to blame. I'm happy you made it to work safely, but many did not.

    I would like to know who was the genius that forgot to put out a two hour delay for Ft Carson this morning? Some of Fort Carson streets were a bed of ice with an accident on the road leading from gate 20 (Widefield). One Street had barriers accross the road so traffic could not go that way. Then someone decided to pull they head out of his or her behind and remove the barriers so traffic gridlock could ease up. Decision making has got to get better people!!!!

      Whose in charge of getting the sand down for those streets??? I work at a hospital no such thing as a 2hr delay, bet you would be one of the ones complaining if we didn't show up on time for your scheduled surgery or procedure. When you know the snow is coming leave earlier to give yourself time for any inconveniences you may encounter along the way.

        @Annoyed....I will entertain you this time. I was on the reservation at 6:30am and I needed to be at work by 8:am. Maybe you know who the genius was that forgot to put out delay reporting for non-essential personnel. I can only think that you are not an non-essential personnel. I made it to work on time but that is not point. Who in their right frame of mind would block off a one way street for PT when there is no one out there running with ice on the road and traffic back up to a stand still because of an accident? You seem to know who put the sand down on post as well maybe you can suggest ideas to the them before the next snow and ice build up on the streets. that would be something constructive that you can do since you are so important at the hospital.

    Because it snows in "Colorado" schools shouldn't close. As parents it is our responsibility to get them to school not the weather man or the teachers. It's the cities responsibility to ensure that our roads are clear so we can get to where we need to go. If you live in the mountains and work in the city that was your choice. As for getting the weather prediction it has been right on the money so I don't know where you live Chris. I had 6 inches in my yard last week just like they said and I saw exactly what they predicted for last night and today. Maybe you better change your channel to the Springs news.

    Accept district 12, they leave it up to the parents "weather" they send their kids too school so the school district don`t have to be burdened with it. They don`t think about the risk of accidents going to school and back. They think everyone has hummers and 4 wheel drive. And the way the students drive going to the high school and in the parking lot is a accident waiting to happen!

      Don't forget about D-8...they had to deal with it too. And I saw 4 accidents on the way to dropping my kids off! Thanks a lot.

    Good to see that the weather people in this town still cant get it right...all the hype from the storm last week and it was nothing and then being told this wouldn't be a big deal here in the Springs and guess what...almost all school districts closed and accidents everywhere...congrats!!
