Yup, heavy snowfall warning in effect for the Mountain Parks. It was a glorious sunny afternoon as I left to come home, but by the time I hit the driveway after stopping off for wing night at a client's restaurant, the evil-looking grey clouds were boiling up over the peaks to the northeast.
Due to shifts in the Gulfstream this time of year, we on this side the Rockies actually become the upslope, and get the heaviest snowfalls of the winter during April. This one's slated for about 20 cm's but spring storms here routinely escalate into blizzards of 50 or 60 cm's in a blink.
I've always loved snow, and especially snowstorms, so I'm secretly hoping we get a major dump. It snowed for a couple hours just after dark, but as I get ready to head for bed here, it's temporarily stopped. The clouds still look pretty ominous though, so I guess I better leave myself an extra hour in the morning in case I need to dig myself out.
Come on white stuff! Let 'er rip!
