Denver turns snowy as winter storm pounds region

Snow is blanketing much of the Rocky Mountains as a powerful storm system moves across the U.S. Denver is expected to see about a foot of snow before the storm moves away early Friday, making travel difficult, to say the least. The higher elevations will likely see several feet of snow. March snowstorms are fairly common in the Denver area, but it’s been a while since the Mile High City has experienced one.
