Let it Snow

This is part of a weekly series published fresh Thursday mornings.


Before Wednesday’s winter storm blew in, Denver had accumulated 17.2 inches of snow during the shortest month of the year. This falls just a few inches shy of the snowiest February in history: In 1912, 22.1 inches of snowfall was recorded. (Denver’s snowfall total is measured at the Denver International Airport.) With more wintery blasts predicted in the coming days, February 2015 could be one for the books. Record books, that is. So for now, we say: Let it snow!
