A storm moved through Colorado today. In Fort Collins snow started falling in the afternoon. I didn't want to get caught waiting too late - because I was afraid it would ice over. Quite heavy snow and rain (very odd) made for slow going just to get out of Ft Collins. I-25 south bound to Erie was slow. The roads were wet, but not (yet) icy. There were spots - near Loveland that the visibility was crap, and couldn't really see the lanes. This is what is known as white knuckle driving. Got home and grabbed this grab shot of the snow on my side mirror. The snow was wet and sticky, and driven by the wind (did I mention there was wind?) this shot shows how the snow starts to accumulate and stick to odd places - side mirrors, front fenders, and in odd place in my wind shield wipers. Snow has continued to fall. I am hoping it will clear up in time for tomorrow's commute. Even if it doesn't it is going to be a slow and icy commute in.
