Where were you during the Christmas Eve blizzard of 1982?

For many Coloradans, Christmas Eve 1982 is etched in their memories not because of the holiday, but because of two feet of snow. 

A Blizzard socked Denver, leaving more than 24 inches behind, practically shutting down the city. It was the most snow ever recorded on the ground in Denver on Christmas. 

Most people who lived in Colorado in 1982 remember exactly where they were and how they spent the snowy holiday.  

For what it's worth, a white Christmas is fairly rare in Denver. There's only snow on the ground about 38 percent of the time.
