Snowmageddon 2021 – the big March blizzard in Colorado

I’ve lived in Colorado for 14 years and heavy March snowstorms are nothing new. We started seeing the forecast about a week ago for snow on the weekend. By midweek we knew this was going to be a big one. I think because of the experiences of the Pandemic and the recent Texas snowstorm, people went a little crazy here. Bananas started selling out around Thursday. Yeah, bananas! Anyhow, I didn’t go too crazy. I had done a Costco run early in the week and had plenty of food on hand.

However, Friday night came and we were hardly seeing any snow. Saturday came and it was raining in the morning. It turned to snow in the afternoon and by evening it was snowing pretty heavy. We woke up Sunday to about 8 inches with blizzard conditions.

When it was all done Sunday night I estimate we had got in the neighborhood of 20 inches. Hard to do an exact measure due to drifting. Today we shoveled. My husband has never bought a snowblower despite having a bad back. I’m exhausted as we had a huge drift in our driveway. Anyhow, enjoy the pics and short video. And send some nice weather our way.

This is what a blizzard is like!
