Surely you've surmised by now, old chap, that it's exceedingly more fun for most of us pretending we don't get your joke, the telling of which, I might add, carries substantial prison time in no less than fourteen developed countries.
" Future years will never know the seething hell and the black infernal background of countless minor scenes and interiors, (not the official surface courteousness of the Generals, not the few great battles) of the Secession war; and it is best they should notï¿½the real war will never get in the books." ~ Walt Whitman
8-18 Inches Of Snow Expected In Front Range, Several Feet In Foothills
DENVER -- Remember the March storm of 2003? Call this the April Storm of 2005.
A heavy, wet snow is falling in much of state and combined with wind gusts of 45 mph, conditions are extremely dangerous for driving.
If you don't have to go anywhere -- it's best to stay indoors, said 24/7 Chief Meteorologist Mike Nelson.
The snow will continue to fall through the majority of the day Sunday, although there will be fluctutations of intensity with bands of light snow and heavy snow. The snowfall rate is about 1/2-inch to 1 inch per hour but a rate of 2 inches an hour is not unlikely, especially in areas east of Interstate 25, Nelson said.
Winter Storm Warnings are in effect for the Front Range and Denver metro area until 6 p.m. and blizzard warnings have been posted for the plains east of Denver and the Palmer Divide and southern I-25 corridor, south of Colorado Springs.
"The intensifying area of low pressure moving along the Colorado/New Mexico border is producing a deep upslope flow that's drawing copious amount of moisture from the Gulf of Mexico," Nelson said.
Because the low pressure is moving so slowly east, the storm has become more drawn out and has the potential to produce record amounts of snowfall.
The storm is affecting much of the state, with the system covering Cheyenne to Colorado Springs. (See Doppler Radar.)
oh, i don't know know about that LF. this winter has been far too long as it is. summer please. a couple of weeks ago (when it was still winter, calendar-wise) we had sun and 20C outside. i was runnng around in a t-shirt. actually, come to think of it, it also happened once this november which was fairly surreal for that time of the year.
today it rained, and then it hailed, and then the sun came out. then it hailed again just now, so hard it was bouncing off the gutters and roof and hitting the windows and covering the deck. now it's raining again. I expect the sun to come out soon. spring in oregon is excellent.
