Let it Snow

"The city of Grand Junction is under an accident alert this afternoon, as accident reports are piling up due to the continued snowfall and slick roads.

The alert means drivers involved in non-injury crashes within city limits should move their vehicles off the road, exchange information with the other driver and file an accident report within 48 hours. Grand Junction police will still respond to accidents involving injuries, suspected intoxication and hit-and-run.

Multiple accidents have been reported across Mesa County and the Grand Valley in the last hour, including rollover crashes on Broadway on the Redlands and on Interstate 70 just on the other side of the Utah state line. Accidents have also been reported on the Fifth Street Bridge and at U.S. Highway 6&50 and 23 Road. No serious injuries have been reported so far, although the southbound lanes of the Fifth Street Bridge are currently closed.

Grand Junction is under a winter storm warning, effective until Tuesday evening. Snow that began falling in the valley this afternoon is expected to intensify tonight and carry over into Tuesday morning. Forecasts are calling for up to 8 inches in the valley."

We haven't had snow like this in a few years. It's been great! I can't wait to see the canyons in the spring...tons of water for Callie to dive in...what a blast!
