I–70 is back open between Limon and Burlington after being closed for about eight hours due to blowing snow and icy conditions.

The 70–mile stretch of highway in eastern Colorado reopened around midnight.

The storm forced the postponement of the Atlanta braves–Colorado Rockies game yesterday, after fresh snowfall in the Colorado mountains and the front range.

Wolf Creek and Winter Park ski resorts reported 13 new inches of snow yesterday.

The Denver area got between one and three inches, Fort Collins got about an inch and Greeley four inches.
