Yesterday, she donned a snow jacket and pants to build a snowman with her son, Johnathan.Yesterdays snow came a surprise to many folks around town, even the forecasters.I dont think we expected quite this much (snow), said Ellen Heffernan, a forecaster with the National Weather Service in Grand Junction.The NWS had called for scattered showers Tuesday night and Wednesday morning in Glenwood Springs, but spring time showers are difficult to predict, she said.The Colorado Department of Transportation closed Glenwood Canyon from about 7 to 8 a.m. Wednesday morning.
