If he gets the same storm we got yesterday, we got 6-8 inches. Only took 3 hours to drive home this AM (1am till 4am) Slush was the word.. And Semi truck idiots were crashing all over the place. I counted 11 on the way home. Wonder how much a semi truck tow truck costs per hour? Could not happen to a better bunch... I honked at each and every one as I passed by. Bill

Colorado Springs is south and east of higher terrain - the Palmer Divide to the north (7,000 + feet above elevation), and the Pikes Peak region to the west (14,000 feet), so those areas to the north always get dumped and we get hardly anything, but they're forecasting roughly 8 inches. Seriously, the orgraphics around here (the layout of the terrain) is such that downtown usually gets 3 inches or so, my place about 5 miles north of downtown will get 5 to 6 inches, and only about 10 miles north of me, they can get 2 to 3 feet! Cripes, this afternoon, we had a thunderstorm with penny size hail, and now it's thundersnowing. We need to get dumped on. This is the worst drought conditions we've had in my lifetime.
