Another Huge Snowstorm At DEN!

Fri Dec 29, 2006 10:16 am

For the SECOND TIME in a week, we on Colorado's Front Range are getting blasted with a blizzard! F9 has already canceled 60 flights for tonight and tomorrow, according to the local news. UA and everyone else will probably follow suit. With another 20 inches of possible by Saturday, DEN will probably need to shut down AGAIN. In fairness to our magnificent airport, the biggest problem is that the roads in and out are covered with snowdrifts. This kind of weather has NEVER happened in the history of Denver!
