Winter storm warning – As in WINTER.
URGENT – WINTER WEATHER MESSAGE
National Weather Service Denver CO
Nov 4 2017
Heavy snow for the northern mountains……a prolonged period of moderate to heavy snow for the north central mountains Saturday night through Sunday night…beginning to decrease on Monday.
Heaviest snow totals expected along higher west and southwest facing slopes, north of the I-70 corridor. In addition, southwest winds 15 to 25 mph with gusts to 40 mph may produce areas of blowing snow over mountain passes, including Cameron and Rabbit Ears.
A total of 102 500 homes and businesses in Denver metro area were left without electricity on Sunday and Monday, October 8 and 9, 2017 after the first snowstorm of the season hit parts of Wyoming, Colorado, and Nebraska. This was Denver’s earliest first snow of the season since 2012.
Named Winter Storm Aiden by The Weather Channel, the storm caused travel problems across the three states and brought first accumulating snow of the season to Denver metro area where its heavy, wet snow caused power lines to snap, leaving widespread power outages from Boulder to Parker.
According to Xcel Energy Colorado, a total of 102 500 customers lost power because of the storm, about 56 000 for a sustained period (from at least 5 minutes to as long as several hours). The power was restored to 97% of customers by Tuesday morning, Xcel said, adding that the remaining 1 500 are expected to have power back by noon (local time).

– More snow for Colorado (Ice Age Now, May 22, 2015):
WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY FROM THIS AFTERNOON TO FRIDAY… That’s winter, as in WINTER!
– Record Snowfall in Pueblo, Colorado (Ice Age Now, Dec 31, 2014):
And temperature record tied
The 2.3 inches of snow that fell on Dec 29 broke a 41-year-old record for the date, according to the National Weather Service in Pueblo, Colorado. (The original article used the word “shattered,” but I don’t think that word really applies here.)
The previous record snowfall for the day of 2 inches was set in 1973.

– Colorado Health-Exchange Director Indicted for Fraud, Theft (National Review, Feb 13, 2014):
The director of Colorado’s health exchange has been placed on administrative leave after the state discovered she had been indicted for stealing from a non-profit, the Denver Post reports:
[Christa Ann] McClure, 51, pleaded not guilty Feb. 6 in federal District Court in Montana to eight counts of theft and fraud from a nonprofit housing agency in Billings.
She was indicted Jan. 16 and notified her current Denver employer, the state-sponsored health exchange, on Monday, a few days after the story broke in Montana media, Connect for Health spokesman Ben Davis said in a telephone interview.
– Colo. Sheriffs refuse to enforce gun laws (RT, DEc 16, 2013):
Sheriffs in the US state of Colorado refuse to enforce laws on gun control arguing that they are too vague and violate Second Amendment rights, a report says.
Colorado’s package of gun laws, enacted this year after mass shootings in Aurora, Colo., and Newtown, Conn., has been hailed as a victory by advocates of gun control. The laws mandate background checks for private gun transfers and outlaw magazines over 15 rounds.
Sheriffs in other states also have refused to enforce gun laws but they are in the minority, according to The New York Times, though no statistics exist.

Congress held discussions to sell the National Parks during the government shutdown through the Disposal of Excess Federal Lands Act, spearheaded by Jason Chaffetz (R-UT).
The sale would cover national parks in Arizona, Colorado, Idaho, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon, Utah, & Wyoming as a measure to “reduce the federal deficit.” We discuss the proposal on this Buzzsaw news clip with Tyrel Ventura and Tabetha Wallace.

– Update: Is there a media blackout on the fracking flood disaster in Colorado? (Daily Kos, Sep 15, 2013):
Oil and gas wells drilled in a flood plain are under water and leaking in Weld County Colorado. There is at least one pipeline that broke as the dirt supporting it was washed away. Hydrocarbons and no telling what else are leaking into the flood waters yet the media is silent.
I posted this on my blog but it needs wider coverage.
Pictures residents sent to me because there is no media coverage.
A leaking tank floats down the river living an oil slick behind it.
From an email.
I see you’ve noticed the underwater wells in Weld County, Colorado. Amazing; we’ve emailed the Denver TV stations, other media, and state and local politicians. We’ve sent pictures that our members have taken. It’s like the media and politicians have been TOLD not to say anything about it. There has been no mention of the gas wells on the Denver newscasts either last night or this evening although all stations have had extensive and extended flood coverage. You can see underwater wells in the background of some of the newscast videos, and yet the reporters say absolutely nothing.Here’s a picture one of our members took yesterday in Weld County, Colorado. We’ve got tons more on our website. Check it out. The tanks are tipping and, in some cases, have fallen over. They have to be leaking toxins into the flood waters. There have to be hundreds if not thousands of underwater well pads in Weld County as a result of the flooding.
Please publicize this in Texas since our media people and politicians have gone silent!

– Suspected death toll rises from Colorado floods as nearly 500 unaccounted for (CNN, Sep 15, 2013):
Boulder, Colorado (CNN) — Rain was still coming down Sunday in Colorado, preventing aerial efforts to search for those missing from a devastating flood, authorities said.
“It’s unlikely at this point that we’ll be able to reach those who are stranded in the hard-to-reach areas,” said Kim Kobel, a spokesperson for Boulder’s Office of Emergency Management.
But rescuers continued their ground efforts, searching for what could be hundreds of people unaccounted for.
A tearful Larimer County Sheriff told reporters that what he’s seen, even in the most devastated areas, has restored his hope.
Sheriff Justin Smith visited areas “somewhat cut off from the rest of the world,” he said.
– Hacked! Colorado Highway Sign Changed to Read “Snowden is a Hero” (Liberty Blitzkrieg, Aug 24, 2013):
Ok, this is pretty much awesome. When I first saw it on Twitter I was a little skeptical, but today I looked into it further and it appears to be completely true. It happened around Telluride, Colorado, a place that has special meaning to me after experiencing the incredible bluegrass festival there earlier this summer. In fact, I really knew how awesome the town was when I saw the following image while walking around:
– Will North Colorado Be The 51st State In The Union? (Economic Collapse, July 11, 2013):
There are ten counties in northern Colorado that are discussing plans to secede from the state of Colorado in order to form a new state that would be known as “North Colorado”. North Colorado would have a population of more than 300,000 people, and it would be the 42nd largest state in the country by land area. The county officials that are leading this movement say that a “collective mass” of issues has resulted in this desire to leave the state of Colorado for good. In recent years, the Democratically-controlled state legislature has been pursuing new regulations on the oil and gas industries, it has imposed strict new renewable energy standards throughout the state and it has adopted new gun control measures that are highly unpopular with rural voters. The desire to be independent of the meddling bureaucrats in the state capital is certainly a commendable goal, but there are some obstacles that will make establishing a new state very difficult. Hopefully the challenges will not cause those pursuing this new state to lose heart.
Recently, representatives from ten Colorado counties held a meeting in the town of Akron to map out the boundaries for the new state…
– A ‘hempire’ growing in Springfield (KRDO, May 16, 2013)
New legislation in Washington state went into effect this week that legalizes for the first time in ages the possession of marijuana. Federal law still says otherwise, though, setting up the Justice Department to make some serious determinations.
Even as smoking up became protected by state law in Washington starting Thursday, coast-to-coast prohibition as provided by a long-standing federal ruling remains on the books. For marijuana advocates in the Pacific Northwest, the lifting of the ban is a pretty big victory. That doesn’t mean that the Justice Department has ruled out an intervention, though.
– What Does It Mean that Residents in All 50 States Have Filed Petitions to Secede? (ZeroHedge, Nov 16, 2012):
A lot of attention is being given to the fact that residents in all 50 states have filed petitions to secede from the United States.
Daily Caller reports:
By 6:00 a.m. EST Wednesday, more than 675,000 digital signatures appeared on 69 separate secession petitions covering all 50 states, according to a Daily Caller analysis of requests lodged with the White House’s “We the People” online petition system.
Petitions from Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, North Carolina, Tennessee and Texas residents have accrued at least 25,000 signatures, the number the Obama administration says it will reward with a staff review of online proposals. (RELATED: Will Texas secede? Petition triggers White House review)
The Texas petition leads all others by a wide margin.
States whose active petitions have not yet reached the 25,000 signature threshold include Alaska, Arkansas, Arizona, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Hawaii, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, South Dakota, Utah, Vermont, Virginia, Washington, West Virginia, Wisconsin and Wyoming.
Fourteen states are represented by at least two competing petitions. The extra efforts from two states — Missouri and South Carolina — would add enough petitions to warrant reviews by the Obama administration if they were combined into petitions launched earlier.
As Google notes, web searches for the term “secession” are being run in a number of states:
– 20 US states file petitions to secede (The News, Nov 12, 2012):
