Denver (AP) - Larger than normal crowds are expected Friday at Denver International Airport after a spring snowstorm forced airlines to cancel hundreds of flights yesterday.
But a message on the airport's Web site urges travelers not to arrive much earlier than two hours before their scheduled flight because it could add to congestion at ticket counters and in security lines.
The storm began moving out of the state this morning but left behind snow-covered highways and side streets. Many schools were closed for a second day or scheduled late openings.
Snowfall totals for the storm included 17.3 inches in the Westminster/Broomfield area, 17 inches in Loveland, 16.2 inches in Boulder, 15 inches in Evergreen and Arvada, 12 inches in Greeley and 11.5 inches in northwest Denver.
