SEE IT: Denver Gets Pummeled by Historic Snowstorm

Stay warm, Denver!

While many corners of this great nation are waking up to spring flowers blooming and the dreaded yellow curse known as tree pollen, folks in the Mile High City were just starting to dig themselves out of one hellacious snowstorm.

The late winter storm was an absolute monster, even by Colorado standards.

The blizzard that dumped more than 2 feet of snow this weekend in the Denver area was the fourth largest in the city’s history, the National Weather Service announced Monday.

Residents across Colorado, Wyoming and Nebraska are now digging out after the major winter storm left at least 24 inches of snow around Boulder and Fort Collins and nearly 31 in Cheyenne — breaking a two-day total record there of 25.2 inches set in 1979. Winter weather advisories are now in effect for parts of South Dakota, Minnesota, Iowa, Wisconsin and Illinois as remnants of the blizzard move eastward.

“Denver International Airport measured 27.1 inches of snow making it the 4th biggest snowstorm in Denver Weather History dating back to 1881,” the NWS’ Boulder Office said Monday. It also was the largest snowstorm in the city since 2006.

Social media users were quick to share some of the stunning images of the storm’s aftermath.

Stay warm, Denver!
