I ran into Ski Instructor Justin Falkenburg at the summit of Sterling this morning. He asked me if we are really supposed to get a snowstorm with a good bit of accumulation. I told him that there is a winter weather advisory starting tonight until Friday morning with up to 14 inches of snowfall total. He told me of course there is because I just took the plow off of my truck. I then thanked him for his sacrifice.
