DENVER — Though the sun is shining and the streets are dry, only in Colorado would we be talking about snow with Denver Public Works.
"You know, it's the first snow storm of the season," Nancy Kuhn, Public Works spokesperson, said. "You know we have the warm day that warm before the storm."
Kuhn says Saturday's temperatures are so warm that it may allow Denver Public Works to hold snowplows until necessary.
"Pavement temperatures could be fairly warm initially, so maybe not so much accumulation right off the top," Kuhn said.
But, as day turns to night, the temperatures are dropping. Though the city may be ready for the snow, what about the drivers?
"Just trying to beat the snow before it gets too bad up here cause we're headed back to (Colorado) Springs," Ollice Burke, Colorado Springs resident, said. "It hasn't started yet, so we're good right now, but later on I already know it's going to be bad."
Mikealia Trujillo says she's not ready for the snow.
"I have to go to Walmart tomorrow to buy me a scrubby thing because the other day I actually used a spatula," Trujillo said.
She calls Colorado weather bipolar.
"We just want to stay calm for once," Trujillo said. "Let us get a 5-day forecast or a 7-day forecast with the same temperatures."
Marie Escalante says she welcomes the snow even if it means bad roads.
"Well, luckily, I don't have to do anything," Escalante said. "I'll be able to stay home and just watch it snow and everybody else can drive."
Kuhn says if needed, the city can deploy 70 large snow plows all the way through Sunday night. She does not believe the residential snowplow services will be needed on the side streets.
Escalante hopes Kuhn is wrong.
"I want my kids to be able to build a snowman," Escalante said.
