Denver (AP) The National Weather Service says the major spring storm that moved across most of Colorado has left some much-needed moisture in its wake.

The storm left a blanket of heavy snow on the front range urban corridor, the northern and central mountains and the eastern plains. Snowfall totals for yesterday included 16.2 inches in Boulder, 12 inches in Greeley, 11.5 inches in northwest Denver, and 17.3 inches in the Westminster/Broomfield area.

Winter conditions persisted last night as the storm moved to the southeast toward Kansas and Oklahoma.

Yesterday, airlines canceled hundreds of flights at the Denver airport, schools shut down and roads were closed as the storm brought heavy snow and gusty winds to much of Colorado.

Gov. Bill Ritter declared a state of emergency and activated the National Guard. Guard Spokesman Lt. Darin Overstreet said the soldiers were waiting for orders.
