DENVER (AP) -- A major snowstorm that canceled flights in Colorado dumped up to around two feet of snow in the foothills west of Denver.
The skies were clear Monday after the storm move on to the Midwest. Operations were also getting back to normal at Denver International Airport, where about 8 inches of heavy, wet snow fell Sunday.
The storm mainly impacted the eastern half of the state. Up to 14 inches fell in parts of El Paso County and some Denver suburbs got around a foot.
The moisture should help improve Denver athletic fields, which have been temporarily closed to protect the drought-damaged grass. It also allowed the U.S. Forest Service to burn brush in northern Colorado to try to prevent future wildfires.
Lighter snow is expected Tuesday.
