Sounds bad. I ventured out earlier today to make the standard replenishment runs. Got back to the Cave around 1445 and it was starting to come down, around 1800 I looked out the window and I wondered if I was living inside a snow globe!
Best wishes for a safe journey home to all who have to be out driving around the 285 corridor tonight!
I can explain it to you but I can't understand it for you.

Just FYI, Hwy 285 is OPEN between Pine Junction and Grant. There was some confusion because CDOT has listed on their Road Conditions page that it's closed, but there's no confirmation on the Travel Alerts page where they put closures, nor did they tweet/email that info. I confirmed with them that it is open, and one of our Facebook members said her parents just drove from Evergreen to Bailey and the roads were fine. CDOT did reply to her and say:
"Looks like from Pine Jct to Bailey, there is a high wind advisory and no light or empty high profile vehicles are allowed." So if you have one of those vehicles types, you may not want to risk it.
