Denver Blizzard Update

It is a freaking mess out here. This blizzard looks to be worst than the last one. And it's only just begun.

The airport is already in chaos:

Lines are already hundreds deep and airlines have canceled some flights as a result of the winter storm that began to dump snow on the Front Range this morning. Snow started falling in downtown Denver shortly before 10:30 a.m. and may fall at a rate of up to 2 inches an hour. Between 8 and 18 inches will be piling up on the ground. A couple of feet can be expected in the foothills as the storm pulses into Friday and even Saturday.

More on the aiport situation here. Frontier is being particularly hit hard. If you're driving, here are the current road conditions.

    Meantime, we had to cancel our Christmas week trip to Jay Peak, VT, because it's too warm and there's no snow!

     I just flew back to CA from WI yesterday but went through Atlanta. At first I thought it a bit out of the way, but I'm starting to think that flying through Denver in the winter is a traveling game of russian roulette. The kicker was I got put in first class for both of my return flights. My first time. Yummy.

    I'm thanking my lucky stars my return flights to L.A. go through Pheonix. Last year I used Denver.
