Another Big Snowstorm Hits Colorado

Government offices and some businesses closed yesterday after a second storm in a week socked the foothills west of Denver area with more than 2 feet of snow.

Snow falling at up to 4 inches an hour blanketed Evergreen in the foothills west of Denver with 28 inches of snow Thursday and several highways were closed by slick, icy conditions or by accidents that took hours to clear.

Interstate 25, the main north-south highway through the state, was closed about 60 miles north of Denver.

Crews were scraping sidewalks early Friday and private contractors were plowing parking lots after 16 inches of snow fell in the Denver metro area by morning.
