Blizzard of 2003

Today was the blizzard of 2003. They predicted a foot of snow overnight, well we had "upslope" conditions, which caused a record snowfall to hit Aurora, and Denver. We got 84" overnight. It was halfway up the front door, halfway up the patio door. It buried my vehicle, and here I sit, scared as hell because it is still snowing. I love snow, but damn, this is a lot. The roof is cracking under the weight, trees are snapping and falling down all over us, and the power is on and off. I think the temperature is about 2 degrees. DIA is closed, the whole plains are shut down. People have already died in this trapped in their cars. God help us!!
