To my surprise when I woke up on Tuesday morning, there wasn't the slightest evidence of snow. The ground wasn't even wet. Needless to say, I was slightly disappointed that I missed out on an extra hour of sleep.

Just because it didn't snow in many of the metro areas of Northern Colorado doesn't mean that other parts of the state didn't take a beating in the storm. Most, if not every single road heading east into Nebraska and Kansas was closed due to blizzard conditions.

Marissa Armas from CBS Denver reports the blizzard conditions from Fort Morgan:

If you have ever watched any sort of reporting of a hurricane, you have probably seen what the storm looks like from either radar or satellite. Meteorologist, Cory Reppenhagen, shared a video of the blizzard that pummeled eastern Colorado, Kansas, and Nebraska... You do have to admit, the snowstorm looks very similar to a hurricane from 22,000 miles above the earth.

We might not have gotten snow in some parts of Northern Colorado, but that's okay... There are plenty of other storms that will be seen during this winter season.
