19 May 2017 – Heavy snowfall shut down highways, caused thousands of power outages and forced schools and businesses to close.

The highest reported snow total so far was 42 inches near Allenspark, Colo., the National Weather Service said. Many other locations picked up between two and three feet.

It was Denver’s biggest mid-May snow in 42 years.
