I can't even imagine. Since 1978 I can't recall a year that got snow like this! (even tho I haven't lived there in awhile but it seems nothing like this has happened since I left either)

IN THE PAST 10 DAYS, WE HAVE PLOWED OVER 5 FEET OF SNOW! Go hug your plow person - or at least give them a friendly wave and thumbs up. Considering that in an average winter, we plow a total of 12 feet, that puts it into perspective how hard all the plow people, private and municipal, have been working the past week and a half. In Silverthorne, the snow pack went from 52% to 110% in TEN DAYS! Today, we were pushing not only 12"-18" of heavy, wind-driven snow, but also battling the 3-ft ice berms pushed up by the road plows. The municipal plows have no choice but to push up the berms - otherwise they'd never get all the roads cleared. But it does make for a lot of extra work on an already intense day. We have a few days of sunshine on tap now, which will give us time for cleanups and push-backs. Get out there and enjoy all that fresh snow, and be safe in the back country, the avalanche danger is extreme.

WINTER WILL FINALLY ARRIVE ON THURSDAY
After a really long extended fall, winter will finally arrive with snow on Thursday and Friday, and much colder temperatures. Most of the mountains are expected to pick up several inches of snow. Expect winter driving conditions for most of Thursday and Friday morning, followed by a sunny but cooler weekend.

To quote Open Snow, IT'S ABOUT TO SNOW - A LOT
Flurries today (Tuesday, 1/3), increasing to periods of heavy snow through Wednesday and Thursday - potential for OVER 2 FEET in Silverthorne by Friday morning (January 6). Sunshine returns for the weekend.
PLEASE DRIVE RESPONSIBLY IN A VEHICLE THAT IS APPROPRIATE FOR THE CONDITIONS!

"Bluebird of Happiness" ~ The first spring bluebird of 2012, captured as he perched on a rustic fence. I processed this image in an Impressionistic style, the warm, bold colors in contrast to the wintry weather. Fantastic as giclée on wood, or choose from note cards, mugs, totes, and more. https://goo.gl/tmjQgg

Snow, Snow, and More Snow! ~ On December 1, Silverthorne snow precipitation was at 52% of average. Now, two weeks later, we are at 90%!* The series of storms over the next few days should push us close to 100%. So, in spite of the late start to winter, once it decided to get going, it has been a nearly non-stop powder train. Yay for snow!

When we walked in, we were immediately greeted by a smiling, cheerful server (Cindy) who had hot coffee on the table within a minute of our being seated. The service continued to be top notch - friendly and efficient. Our food was prepared quickly and tasted great. We have been in other IHOPs where the food tasted like old grease, and the staff acted as if we were putting them out by being there. This location was a very pleasant change.
