    Meteorologists were frantic in the days leading up to March 13. Atmospheric models were showing signs of a massive storm heading to Colorado’s Front Range. Some predicted snowfall totals worse than the massive blizzard that hit in 2003. While the storm that eventually reached Northern Colorado didn’t live up to its apocalyptic expectations, it still left hundreds without power and damaged property all across the state.
