2011 - February 7th-8th - Grand Junction Snow Storm

Posted on the 19 March 2011 by Danncianca
Normally on a Monday night, I head off to Mesa State to play basketball with co-workers and other local TV people. We don't start until 11PM or so after everyone's 10PM shows are done, so I was watching a movie to pass the time.
I thought to look out the window at one point and found that extremely large dendrites were falling from the sky. Within 45 minutes, at least two inches of snow had fallen. I decided to forgo basketball and document the snow storm locally as it kept coming down heavy.

Most areas in the Grand Valley received between 3 and 5 inches from this storm, which may not seem like much to most. However, the climate is rather dry out here and the snowfall rates were definitely extreme for this area.
All in all, a fun night, and the next morning, I headed up to the Monument...

Note: Couldn't help the lens flares... my camera is so old and scratched up it isn't funny. Still does the trick for the most part, though.
