Well, not the best quality picture, but you get the picture! That's about the last 8 inches of a yard stick. The drift is over 4 feet high; right off my driveway.
I still can't get an accurate gage as to how many inches of snow we actually got in Colorado Springs; it ranges from a few inches to well......................that! Over 50 mph wind gusts just sent the snow everywhere. All in all, a great storm; I'll never complain when work is closed from snow!
What an impressive storm we had here in the Denver metro! This is the first blizzard I have experienced since I just moved here in July from Norman. What a nice welcoming present from the state. Here at my place we received exactly 2 feet of snow. Many of the side streets turned into sidewalks because travel was next to impossible in cars and the real sidewalks were covered in snow and drifts as high as 4 feet.
On a funnier note, my Lab loved the snow. Although sometimes he did not realize how deep the snow was!
I went out again Dec 22 to try and get a few shots highlighting the beauty of this ice storm . Some of the ice had accumulated to slightly over 1" making this the most significant ice storm I have ever experienced.
