Quite the Winter for Colorado Travelers
As reported by the Associated Press today about 2000 travelers are stranded along I-70 in Colorado in Red Cross shelters because of a threat of avalanches closeing the highway. With winds approaching 70 miles an hours snow has drifted in to about two dozen ravines in the mountains along the road, in what is called avalanches chutes. Crews were planning to use low-power explosives on the snow to try opening up the highway. Quite a way to start the year off.
