A powerful storm dumped up to 24 inches (60 cm) across western states on Tuesday, prompting cancellation of about 500 flights at the Denver airport and leaving snowdrifts 3 to 4 feet deep.
School kids in Billings, Montana, the state’s largest city, got their first snow day in more than 25 years.
Parts of I-25 and I-80 were closed in Wyoming, while cities along Colorado’s I-25 corridor reported up to a foot of snow.
The storm left about a foot (30 cm) of snow in the Salt Lake City area and more than two feet in other places.
Farther east, the Colorado plains received four to eight inches of snow.
Yet another storm is forecast to bear down on the area today.
