Mother Nature in Colorado did her best to impress us on Monday, January 28, 2019. Sunrise in our area found the morning mostly calm with not a snowflake in sight but by 8:30 am that had changed radically. The wind hit first with just a few light snowflakes dancing along, but within a half hours time the ground was covered, snow had increased to near white out conditions, and roads had become extremely slick. Travel became a challenge as the snow quickly packed to ice, and wind gusts creating horizontal snow resulted in very low visibility.

Valley resident, Marilyn Olson commented "The Interstate was "Bad, Bad, Bad!" after a near miss when a semi passed her and she could not see cars stopped in front of her. Fortunately, when she braked, she was able to slide into the next lane and avoid an accident, just coming away shaken up. Rye resident, Tammy Smith agreed the Interstate was a rough trip. She had driven from Rye to Pueblo. Taking Pueblo Blvd approaching Hwy 50 she narrowly missed being involved in a multi-car pileup that started out as four cars and by an hour later had as many as ten cars stopped. Numerous travelers reported near misses and both Hwy 165 and I-25 were lined with vehicles that had slid off the road.
