One of my best friends moved from Zurich Switzerland to downtown Denver in January. So far he is underwhelmed by their “snowpocalypse”. Apparently they only have a couple of inches so far.

Nice to know even the Rockies of Colorado sometimes get a "meh" storm when the models were spitting out crazy amounts, and it doesn't only happen here.  But their "meh" is getting 8-12" instead of 2 to 4 feet.

Having said that, northern Colorado and southeast Wyoming seem to be taking the brunt of the storm.  The NWS in Cheyenne is still calling it "historic" with snowfall rates of 2-5" per hour in upslope areas.  I would like to see a 5 in/hr snowfall rate just once.  I can't imagine what that would look like.   

The Denver airport reported 11.1" this morning, but many in the city are seeing less amounts--around 5-8" so far.  It's still snowing this morning, and the official forecast calls for another 4-8" in Denver.  Respectable March snow for them, but certainly not what models showed a few days ago, and nothing they can't handle.
