Sucks.


4-9 inches of snow and freezing in ****ing mid May. Damnit. I am a BIG gardener, all I wanted to do was see 200+ iris blooms open before we leave for a year- and they will probably freeze and die.


Had to vent, **** this place.

I feel your pain. trying to sell my damned house in CO springs in this crap is not helping. Also I am flying to Denver on Monday and I am not amused by this spring snow nonsense, but que sera sera. Hopefully the snow will help CO with some needed moisture as I seem to recall they are often short on water.

I lived in Lauderdale for seven years after growing up here on the front range. I'm glad I moved back home. Actually having seasons was reason enough.

Mountain snowpack was at or above 100% for most mountain ranges here all winter but that water will go downstream and the 'we're in a drought' talk will start anytime now. I'm already restricted in irrigation yet Other states who get their water from the colorado river basin who are indeed in a drought from the lack of moisture this year have no restrictions on watering. So Nevada, so Utah, so cal, And arizona need moisture.

the entire SW needs water, Colorado is no exception. The Western slope has been too dry for too long. I know about the "water rights" issue in CO where CO residents (farmers and ranchers mainly) don't have any rights to the water lol.

Everyone is different.

I'll enjoy my 86 degrees for the high tomorrow and sunny weather.

Enjoy your 46 degrees for the high and 30 for the low Denver.

You girls need to stop your whining. The snow will be gone in a couple of days and the water is a blessing for the farmers.

that is all i got.

I grew up in LA and Louisiana so I'm still absolutely fascinated by this "snow." Can't get enough of it.

Lived in Colorado for almost 30 years before moving. It's easily one of the most beautiful states to live in. I've actually snow skied and water skied in the same day! (had to use a wet suit) But since I don't snow ski, play hockey or snow mobile anymore....it was time to move out of exactly what's going on right now. I just got back from the golf course complete with palm trees. Vegas baby!

It's Western Water Law. Prior rights take priority. There's been so many lawsuits over water rights. Nebraska won a big one not long ago. Nebraska has water rights on the Platte River ahead of Colorado. Colorado has to release water downstream to Nebraska out of the South Platte. Water is a commodity. There has been and still is shooting matches over water.

There was the Colorado River Compact of 1922 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Colorado_River_Compact

Those seven western states agreed to divide the water from the major drainages of the Western Slope of the Continental Divide. Colorado though, specifically Denver Water, already had diversion tunnels under the Continental Divide from the Western Slope to feed Western Slope water to the front range.

It's actually pretty fascinating to read the history of water wars in the West. Denver Water Co. actually kicked ass. They drilled tunnels under the Continental Divide in the 1880's to divert water from the Western Slope to Denver. They didn't f around. They had a plan and they made it happen. The Moffat Tunnel under the Divide, it includes a water diversion from the Western Slope into the South Platte. Amazing foresight in 1921.
