From hot to snow in Colorado

Snow in Denver, Colorado, USA, 26 Oct 2011

In less than 36 hours, Denver, Colorado, USA went from a record high of 27 C to a winter wonderland with as much as 15 cm of snow in the so-called “Mile High City”.

The early wet snow has snapped tree branches still carrying fall foliage.

Branches have knocked down power lines causing outages to more than 100,000 customers.

Travel through the foothills and nearby Rocky Mountains has been treacherous with more than 30 cm of snow reported in some areas.
