Winter storm strikes Denver

A Winter Storm Warning is in effect for much of the Denver area. A winter storm has already dumped heavy snow across much of the area in this early season blitz. Breckenridge is already reporting over 18 inches of snow. The average date of first snowfall in Denver is October 19, so this is not as suprising at it would be on the East Coast.
