There’s snow in them thar hills

Clouds clear off the mountains outside of Marble. A winter weather advisory was in place all day Wednesday, and areas above 8,000 feet received several inches of snow. Colorado Department of Transportation officials closed Independence Pass for the season, two days sooner than planned. A slow-moving storm out of the Pacific Northwest brought forceful wind and heavy rain to much of the West and threatens to drop as much as a foot of snow on higher elevations before it moves out of the region.
