The roads are still bad.

The roads are closed all over the place There are some highways that are closed. They are calling this the blizzard of 2016. The schools are all closed and only the major roads have been plowed. The side streets have all kinds of snow on them. The national guard was called in to help all of the cars and people that were stranded. That was yesterday. Today there are still roads that are closed and the stranded people are in shelters. Everyone said this would happen just before we were ready to leave.

Not uncommon for Colorado. I guess no one is going to Aspen today.

@jstory07 Several years ago, I planned a vacation to the Denver area and got as far as stateline and turned around and went home after seeing the news reports that the interstate was shut down.

I take it you were not able to leave when you wanted to. I had heard about the bad weather and airport closure on the news and hope today is better there. We also had snow and wind here yesterday and some schools and businesses were closing early.

I am a person from the tropics and I had never seen snow in person. I use to fantasize about snow, You know making a snowman or doing a snowball fight but reading this makes me thankful there is no snow in the tropics. The torrential downpours and the monsoon is enough torture for me.

@jstory07 The weather has been extremely weird this year. They have had record snowfalls in places that do not usually get snow, and they have had record high temperatures in places that are normally cold and snowy.
