Entering day 43

We are now in day 42 of at least an inch of snow cover here in the Denver/Boulder area. Tomorrow, we will be tied for the 4th most consecutive days, according to the National Weather Service. As I look at the window, I see even more falling, so unless a surprise warming trend happens (not the current forecast) we may soon be in third place. For more information on the historical weather in February here, check out the February forecast. Last year in February we actually got to 77 degrees...

If you are in Denver and are wondering when the snowplows will get to your ice covered street, the city has put up a schedule for Snow and Ice Removal. This page is maintained by the Public Works Department for the City and County of Denver. This department is responsible for "year-round road maintenance and repair, weekly household trash collection service to 163,000 households, design and construction management of streets, bridges, and public buildings, transportation services through our parking management, transportation planning, engineering and operations offices, and protection of our urban environment." They are also the group that maintains the traffic cams, which will let you look at the various states of snow removal.
