Having just barely escaped Denver after last week's big storm, it looks like we're getting hit again:

Eighteen inches of snow was forecast for the Denver area starting Thursday, with as much as 2 1/2 feet of snow in the foothills. That could shut down area highways all over again and possibly delay flights at Denver International Airport, where thousands of holiday travelers were stranded for about two days during the last storm.

Frontier Airlines, the airport's second-busiest carrier, canceled more than 50 flights Thursday and Friday in anticipation of the storm.

It's a good thing I opted for the extended vacation and didn't try to get back as soon as X-mas was over. Although if I had flown out yesterday I suppose it would have been fine. Still, there's going to be one hell of a mess to contend with when I get back.
