just got back from visiting the folks who get to see this virtually every day.. from their house..
There are views like this from about 3/4 of the windows in the house.. virtually every direction..
This is near Wallsenburg Colorado, at about 7000' elevation.
Last sunday, at 7:00am, it was mostly clear, byt 07:30, we had snow flurries.. by 0800, a full blown white-out..
6"-7" in the next three hours..
AND the best part: by 3pm the next day, it was all gone, and it was 55*. the next day 65*..
