...ON THIS DATE IN WEATHER HISTORY...

In 1966, in Denver Colorado the first measurable snow of the
season caused widespread damage to trees and shrubs. The heavy
wet snow totaled 6.9 inches at Stapleton International
Airport, where north northwest winds sustained at 20 to 25 mph
and gusting to 45 mph caused much blowing and drifting snow. South
and east of Denver up to a foot of snow fell. Heavy wet snow
accumulations followed by freezing temperatures and strong winds
resulted in extensive damage to trees, cars and utility lines by
falling limbs. A woman was killed by a falling snow laden tree
limb in Denver.
