I feel real bad for you Andy. That is the price that we occasionally have to pay for 250 days of sunshine here every year. It looks like snowmobile weather to me!!! Teri and I missed it because we were up in Central City Wednesday night (for free) and since they offered us another night (free) we just decided to stay. They only got about 6" in Central City. But Teri and I got 2 nights free, 2 trips to the buffet free, 2 trips to the deli free, and over $1000 free to take home too. And by noon today the roads were in decent shape.
It doesn't look as bad as the Great Christmas Blizzard in Denver in 1982. Back then the snow out in Aurora was FIVE FEET DEEP after 24 hours of snow like that. And I have seen an overnight snowstorm in both Montana and Minnesota with Five Feet overnight too.
What I really hate is when it is snowing so hard that you can't even see the end of the hood!!!http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UTNgL7noiyQ
